Spring should be here soon.
With Spring sunshine there will be flowers blooming again! Some of our favorites are the hydrangea, knock out roses, day lilies, zinnias and flox.
It really is fun to grow them, cut the blooms and take them to the office or decorate with. If you aren’t that ambitious, go to the local floral store and buy a bouquet of your favorites.
Everyone we know loves beautiful flowers. Before you begin cutting, take a little lesson in the art of floral design with Kate Spade’s floral designer, Ashley.

Different uses for Mason Jars at your wedding
Vintage styling is very popular today among clothing and accessories, but it is especially characterized for country inspired weddings. There are many ways you can decorate your venue and reception with unique items, such as Mason Jars, barn wood, old iron works, fencing and containers. The Mason jar is so popular and has a lot of uses. Did you know that Mason jars were invented by John Mason to improve the process for preserving and canning food? Your grandmother’s food, as a child, was probably prepared in a Mason jar.
Today, they are used as decoration, and make for very unique, cute décor for many brides. Whether you use 10 or 100, they add a nice DIY (do it yourself) look that fits perfectly into a vintage/ rustic theme wedding. Here are some great ways to use them:
