Spring is Here!!

The center piece I made for my sister's House Warming Party.

One of my favorite spring flowers is the Daffodil, my mother always had them growing outside our home and I love driving down the highways seeing them in huge masses.  They are surprisingly very inexpensive, even cheaper than carnations yet I think they look so elegant.  The arrangement above was made out of 100 stems from Trader Joe's which cost me a total of $15, that's $1.50 a bunch!!!  

I actually purchased 150 not knowing exactly how many I would need but it worked out great because there were still 30-40 that didn't open all the way, once they finish opening I'm going to put them on my nightstand.  

I covered a trifle dish with chicken wire to help me form the dome shape. 

And then worked my way around with flowers until I got to the top, it was very simple!

Excellent! I might just have to swipe your idea for Easter brunch next week.

I got 5 bunches of daffs at TJ's! They're wonderful!
