DIY Floral Recipe: Gabrielle’s Garden

Well I’m a bit excited about today’s floral recipe. Why you ask? It’s simple…it makes me feel that way! It’s been a cold dreary week here in Connecticut and man oh man, this floral arrangement, named after my daughter Gabrielle, is just making me feel warm inside. I wanted to play with color this week and I’m glad I did. Peony season is upon us and I’ll be using them as much as I can while they are available. I discovered turtle roses (weird name right) but they are so elegant and pretty and I just had to use them. I love sharing these floral recipes with you all, not only to inspire you but to share and discover new varieties of flowers along the way. I hope you enjoy this one loves.
