Dreaming of Spring


It's that time of year where I start dreaming of the tulips that will eventually make their way through the soil in my yard. I tweeted two weeks ago how my wardrobe was ready for spring. Bring on the coral, yellow, sky blue - I am ready to retire my black, gray and white until next November.

What brightens my day more than Crate and Barrel designs, and Target's most recent Merona Collection? Tulips!

Tulips happen to be my favorite flower, and every time I see a vase of these traditional blooms, with their modern, sleek shape, I cannot help but smile. And although it's only mid-January, I have eyed tulip bunches in Horrock's, my absolute favorite market in Grand Rapids - months before they are in-season in Michigan.

If you are planning on using fresh flowers at your wedding, it's wise to see what flowers are available from your florist. Many wholesalers can get almost anything, even if out of season, however guaranteeing a specific color and something that fits into your budget needs to be discussed with your florist's supplier during planning.

Here's to a little color boost for you on this January morning! Cheers!
