Jodi translated Christo, the famous team of Christo and Jeanne Claude. Here is the piece she used for inspiration, and she did a fantastic job!
Its Fall Yall, so time to redo the window...Jackie Donated a Really Cool Door for me to paint, so I went to town....
When its time for romance, it's fun to make decorative items that are out of the ordinary and perhaps even a bit frivolous. Very special, unique and romantic are Flower Ice Candles. Flower and ice creations that hold a votive candle inside!
Although Flower Ice Candles will only last for several hours, they are easy and inexpensive to create. Entice and enhance the mood with sensual Flower Ice Candles.
Plastic, glass or metal containers of varying sizes to be used as molds for Floral Ice Candles. There needs to be at least a 1-inch space between the two containers.
Seasonal berries, flowers and greenery. Try red carnations, roses, lisianthus, freesia, black privet berries, red pepper berries, fragrant pine and eucalyptus.
Glass votive and candle to fit inside mold for Floral Ice Candle.
Step 1- Insert one container inside another larger container. There needs to be at least a 1-inch space between the two containers.
Step 6- Finally, place a glass votive holder and candle inside the Flower Ice Candle. Now the mood is set for romance. - After the mold is frozen and it's just a short time before use, soak the mold in warm water to release the Flower Ice Candle. - Insert greenery, berries and flowers in the water-filled space between the two containers. Now freeze this mold. - Fill the interior container with rice to weight it down but do not allow the interior container to rest on the bottom of the larger outer container. - Fill the space between the two containers half full with water. This becomes the Flower Ice Candle mold.
Free Vase Pickup or Feel Free to drop them off!
We at The Bloom Closet Florist understand that vases tend to accumulate. And accumulating is not always desirable. Valuable storage space is used and more often than not, vases are left on a dusty shelf, unused.
So we'd like to pickup your used vases and put them to use again. Or, if they really don't meet our quality standards, we will take them to the recycling center.
Here's How It Works
Call us at 706-364-2588 and schedule a pickup date. We will pick up your vases the next time we are delivering in your neighborhood. So you should be located within our local dleivery area. Place your vases (or box of vases) on your doorstep or inside your workplace front reception area the morning of your pickup date. We will stop by and pick them up!
Why We Are Picking Up Vases
No, there isn't a sudden vase shortage. And no, it won't really save us any money on vases. We just want to do our tiny part in helping the planet. And reusing and recycling is a great start!
Sometimes I (The Bloom Closet Florist) gets to be really creative, and I got to do so today by doing flowers for sweet 9 year old Alison. We have sent her a few different flowers so far, so I had to come up with a new animal, so we found Nemo and translated him through flowers, here is how he turned out and here are a couple of his friends we have done over the past couple of years....
