Timeless Springtime in Paris Bouquet!

I saw this idea via Pinterst and decided that I was going to take this on for a birthday present idea for my Aunt.  Her birthday is on Monday and every year I get her flowers and we do a spa day together after tax season (since she is an Accountant and is swamped this time of year).  This year I made these in replace of my normal flower arrangements.  I think it will bring a bit of a Parisian flair to her office. . .

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “embracing my inner french girl” pie with me.

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
