I love this trend. So when I found myself with a few extra flowers from an order earlier this week, I decided to make a little ombre arrangement for our house.

Ombre: According to Merriam -Webster, ombre means "having colors or tones that shade into each other..." I love how this shading looks in floral designs, it seems to bring out the subtle tones in flowers that you might not otherwise notice.

By the way, that calla lily was grown LOCALLY, in OREGON by Oregon Coastal Flowers!!!! Yahoo!!!! Local flowers are starting to come into the market! Spring is on it's way, folks!

And speaking of spring and local flowers, the Botanique Seasonal Subscription is starting in April! This subscription brings you eight weeks of locally-grown, gorgeously arranged flowers. Know someone with a spring birthday? Why not give them flowers for eight whole weeks? I betcha they would love that. Check it out here.
