Mostly everyone knows my love of flowers real and fake. I love the colors, smell and overall beauty if brings to any space. So I have this floral business that I have been doing for years now. The business has expanded way beyond my wedding planning business thank you Jesus. I have gotten contracts from nursing homes in the past year for orders totaling over 200 floral arrangements for each home, which by the way bought my business thousands of dollars in sales. So I have a few woman at my place of full-time employment that I consider my sisters-in-Christ, these woman exemplify character, grace, wisdom and elegance. There only a hand full but they are great woman to work with and our fellowship has expanded way beyond work. I make the floral arrangements and bring them in and adorn there desks with flowers (my desk also). These arrangements are artificial roses, carnations any flower that looks great and brightens there day.
Going off the path here a little but, its something about giving, that just stirs up my spirit and makes me feel wonderful. I mean just the simplicity of a artificial floral arrangement makes there day. We as humans get so caught up in ourselves and other affairs, that we forget that giving is what God wants us to do, think about He gave it all His son Jesus up on the cross, Jesus bleed and died for us. So why cant we give even if its just a hug, smile, coffee!! when you see someone at the coffee shop buy them a cup, bring some donuts in for the office staff. It's so much that can be done to make someone happy and it also brings joy to yourself. I Love giving its my nature not because I am looking for anything in return, but if God wants to bless me I am all for it!! won't complain no sir not me!! because God has blessed me and my family with so much, we just cant help ourselves in giving and helping.
So see how I made my SPRING arrangement below!!! and try them yourself so much fun...
Ok....my trick to making my floral look like they are sitting in water is QUICK WATER....this solution hardens into a clear acrylic that never loosens or looses its color, I love the brand above because it does not turn yellow over time, some of the acrylics will. Those stunning floral & quick water can be bought at michaels.com this craft store has everything love it!! they actually had a great sale going on 40% off spring flowers. Any clean vase will do you can actually find the vases for $1.00 in some craft stores the acrylic on works in glass....
cut all your floral before applying acrylic and arrange them according to how you want them
add your solutions and keep stirring and stirring for about 5-10 minutes getting out all the little bubbles, once they are gone add you florals and let the solution sit for 24 hours.
and then you will have a gorgeous arrangement that will adorn any spring table, desk, kitchen or church alter!! hummm now there's an idea?
Have a Happy Day all and enjoy making your arrangements that will last forever!!
