Last weekend was the annual River Oaks Garden Center Azalea Trail 2014. We always like to go, especially to see the beautiful homes in that area of town. Usually you get to walk through a home and then outdoors to see the yard and gardens. Photographs are not allowed inside, unfortunately (I saw lots of things inside I would have loved to have photos of!) but they are allowed outside.
Here are some of the “cute” things I saw on the Azalea Trail! Just enjoy (I know you will!) or perhaps they will inspire some creative ideas, who knows?! Paper flowers are so IN these days, so no reason we couldn’t duplicate some of these ideas! But these are real, fresh flowers!
Loved these tables and chairs out on a patio!
Cute polka dot dishes at a place setting on the patio! Make a card or bag with polka dots!
Cute topiary on a zip line over the pool!
My favorite! Glass jars full of gumballs or candy, cupcakes made out of flowers, and ice cream sodas made from flowers! All out on a patio looking like it is ready for a party!
I hope you enjoyed these pretty photos and that they give you some kind of inspiration. For example, you could use the photo right above to make a card using orange and green – or stamp orange and green polka dots – or punch out orange and green circles – whatever it is that strikes you! Have some fun today looking for inspiration and think ahead to spring!
