Category Archives: Flower Friday

One of my ultimate go-to gifts is always flowers. When I’m attending a dinner party or a holiday get together hosted at a friend’s house, I like to bring a custom bouquet in a brand new vase. I leave the vase behind as a thank you gift for the host. Candles and champagne also make for quick and easy gifts, but it is when I bring the flowers that I receive the most smiles. Pro Tip: If you don’t have time to pick up blooms from a specialty flower shop, stop by a grocery store but skip the pre-made bouquets and pick up a dozen of roses, tulips or whatever else is in the store as well some simple filler green to create your own arrangement.

Also, let’s take a quick moment and acknowledge how great it is that

Happy Flower Friday!

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, it’s officially holiday season. Tonight we’re having my college best friend and her husband  over for an intimate Friendsgiving. I whipped up my mom’s turkey recipe, I’ll be sharing it on the blog Sunday, I also picked up beautiful flowers and spent the day getting everything ready for our evening. For tonight’s centerpiece I settled on a simple arrangement of pink peonies and off-white anemones. I tucked a few eucalyptus branches under the vase and added a sprig of fresh thyme to each place setting to add an aromatic touch to the table. Scroll down to see how it all turned out.

Today’s Flower Friday is all about a glam take on fall decor. I know that glitter is the herpes of arts and crafts, but I love it so much I can’t help myself. I glittered my pumpkins, corn, and added embellishments in the form of confetti, and even an old brooch that I pinned onto one of the pumpkins. I also couldn’t resist adding a few bougainvillea blooms to give the whole set up a touch of that California vibe. I love how everything turned out. Most of all I had a blast making all of this.

Do you enjoy decorating during the holiday season?


Happy Friday kittens.

Here is a little fall bouquet I made with winter roses, wine hued dahlias, snowberries, and hellebores. I also made a DIY vid on Instagram of me making this bouquet. Hope you have a great weekend.

Happy Flower Friday! Today I’m sharing a simple but impactful arrangement of orchids. I use a trimmed hydrangea as the base of the arrangement to help weave and hold the flower stems in place.  If you want to see a quick video of the DIY check it out on my Instagram @LateAfternoon. My neighbor’s puppy, aka my favorite little nugget Busby, made a cameo in the post and video.

Happy Friday! I hope you enjoy the pretty arrangement and make sure to check out the quick tutorial video.
