weekend create away: flowers

I'm happy to have Stephanie from Baba Souk joining me again this year. She's come up with a great new series I'm calling Weekend Create Away. I'll let her take it from here. (I'm off to pick up some flowers!) One of my goals for 2014 is taking time to play and live a creative life. What is this life all about without a little time to have fun? This new post series is about making time to do something inspiring. I’ll come up with super feasible ideas and simple ways to stir up our creative juices! Are you in?

So over the weekend, let’s try to make our own beautiful flower arrangements. The trick is not to have it put together by the florist, but to go to your local market and buy a few flowers and greenery you like, bring them home, find the perfect vase and play! We all need a little blast of color to brighten up this coldest time of year.I’d love to see what you come up with!

It doesn't need to be complicated to be pretty. Here are a few bouquets to get you started.
