You know it's just around the corner... the days are a little longer, the birds are more vocal, some tips of bulbs are even pushing up through the soil. Spring is coming!!! Here we are at the end of January (the longest month of the year), February, while still cold, seems to fly by, and then comes March. Here in Raleigh, NC, March is a combo month, a little bit of winter and a little bit of spring. And sooooo much starts happening in the garden- I can't wait!!!
And I have some brides who can't wait for March too! So I thought I would put together a white wedding bouquet of some flowers that just shout SPRING. This bouquet holds a dreamy selection of whites and creams- hydrangeas, Majolika roses, tulips, ranunculus and paperwhites (narcissus).The narrow band that wraps the flowers (shown in the top picture), is a type of crochet that was made by my Grandmother, called tatting.

What's not to love?
FYI- when designing with any type of narcissus or daffodil, it is important that they are conditioned separately from other flowers since the sap from these flowers can harm other flowers. They can safely be mixed with other flowers after twelve hours.
