Planning a Mother’s Day lunch for the moms in your life? After you’ve arranged your flowers, give them some extra zest by adding some fresh cut fruit. Include oranges, lemons or limes in your arrangement by simply cutting the fruit in half, sticking the uncut end into a floral pick, then gently poking the floral pick into the oasis inside the vase. Make sure to add any fruit on the day of the party so that they will stay fresh.

We were so honored to be asked by to create this Mother’s Day Alfresco Lunch for their site–click over to see more of this party. And we’d like to thank Robin Mathis from Twigg Botanical for creating our floral arrangements. Her awesome talent doesn’t end here, she’s amazing at creating wedding arrangements too.

  2. That is a beautiful arrangement, I love those colors! I’m participating in a scrapbook challenge this month having to make a monochrome layout and one of the weeks is orange. I just got my inspiration here!! I wish I could be so lucky to get an arrangement like this.

  7. Bravo! I love the colour scheme. I have been obsessing with the colour orange lately. What mother wouldn’t enjoy a gift certificate for a pedicure and your touch of adding a nail polish is brilliant. Tomorrow, I plan to do a post on clutter-free Mother’s Day gifts. Your gift is definitely clutter-free. Thank you for your beautiful posts.

  8. Beautiful! I love this. I am going to do it for my mom on Friday. I am sure my flowers won’t be quite as pretty, but I can make a mean orange roll! :) HGTV was lucky to get ya.
