Until the official mark of spring. And with the temps in lovely Chi-town expected to be frigid this weekend (today we are suppose to reach a whopping high of 10 degrees) I can't wait for a little warmer weather. But also with spring comes a sea of flowers in bloom. As many weddings and events begin to take place this time of year, there are a wide variety of gorgeous flowers to choose from to add just the right touch to your special celebration. Flowers are also an essential part of any home environment, whether you're entertaining or enjoying the space yourself. A small arrangement of fresh cut flowers can make a big statement. Tulips, orchids, gerber daisies and lilies are some of my favorite. They come in an array of colors and are at their peak this time of year. Always in season and never to be ignored is the traditional simple rose. It can be incorporated in just about any arrangement and personally one of my favorites. Here are some fun spring ideas for any event and/or your home. Happy Friday and GO BEARS!
