Recently I was fortunated enough to visit Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara.  Immediately, in the lobby, my breath was taken away with this amazing daisy flower arrangement! 

Is that fantastic, or what?!  I absolutely love this simplicity, consistency and grandness of this display!  Bravo flower arrangers!  As we continued our stay, I was struck by an overall tropical feel on the grounds.  As I walked around (in the rain – which I love to do!)  I noticed many courtyards with unique succulent flower centerpieces as well as tropical themes.  

            

What I love about these gorgeous succulents is that they are drought tolerant, which is ideal for Southern California terrain. 

Succulents are a great investment and are hard to kill and when layed out well, can be quite impactful.  Personally I’m so tired of planting $150 worth of flowers and they’re all dead 3 months later.  Roger’s Garden in Newport Beach and Laguna Hills Nursery sell a variety of succulents and where I get my inspiration.

   

If you have any arrangements you’d like to share, email them to: c7sdesignteam@gmail.com  I plan on adding more as I stumble upon them.

EnJOY your day and stop and smell the flowers!

It seems like the day after Christmas the Valentine decorations in the stores come out!   In January I’m already seeing Easter stuff.  Yikes!  Society! Merchandisers!  Slow down!
 
In January I don’t mind still having some RED (a rich, deep red; not the red of this font!) in my warm-colored home.  I love the color RED, both at Christmas and to support the “love” theme of Valentine’s Day.  I’m not into the tchocky Valentine decorations as much as I am into a classic, clean, simple yet impactful look of a flower arrangement.  And how great if you can find fake flowers that look so real (from a distance!). 
  

A Love Journal can be an easy but impactful way to let someone know you care about them.
 
“Love Journal” – Create one!
 

 

 

  • Purchase/Make a small – medium sized journal
  • Add photos you like and hand-write what you love about that photo/person
  • This is a great Valentine’s gift.  Everyone loves photos and telling someone what you love about them, can’t hurt either!

EnJOY and tell me about yours!
