A Day in the Life of A Dreamer

- I have always been a 'dreamer' and I think that is the most important quality a person can have in order to be creative. It allows me to view things from all sorts of angles. Whenever I would design for a wedding/special event I made myself 'think like a photographer' and in my mind's eye I wanted to be able to showcase various colors, elements & textures. At the end of 2012 I closed the doors to my Floral Studio and began pursuing new horizons. Flowers and plants have been a part of my life since I was a child and helped my Dad in the garden. Seeds have always fascinated me and one day I will share my 'Lesson Of the Bean' story with you! My other passion is creating beautiful food to share with family and friends -- I have always said that food and flowers go together. For now, I would like this Blog to be a collection of Pretty things that this Dreamer would like to share with all of you!

Light up the Night!
The Holiday Weekend is a time for friends and family to gather and celebrate -- Picnics, Reunions, Weddings, Showers, etc. Here is an easy project you can make for your Summer Gatherings & Events that can bring the beach to you.
This glass jar was an inexpensive find at the local 'Christmas Tree Shop' but you can use any large 'pickle' jar . . my Grandmother had tons of them in her Summer Kitchen.
All you need for this project is your imagination and few items:
Sand, Sea Glass (or just some glass gems that you can purchase at your local craft stores, Shells collected from prior beach holidays, a votive holder and candle of your choice -- we used Citronella votive candles because these lanterns are used outdoors and they provide the ambiance and also keep away those pesky mosquitoes.
You are now set to assemble your lantern and enjoy them this weekend.
There are many other ways you can create this look for your home or upcoming events -- use your imagination and put your own spin on it.
If you decide to make lanterns of your own feel free to share them on Best Buds' Facebook Page -- I would love to see your creations too!!!
