A side note: This was the first time we ever used ‘Polar Star’ roses from Eufloria Flowers and I would highly recommend them. ‘Polar Star’ is a winter white and opens to a large flawless bloom…just beautiful!

Hope everyone had a great Valentine’s weekend… 



  1. LOVE the bridesmaids’ bouquets! Beautiful!

    You asked if I sanded my chairs before I painted them (my makeover that was on Pure Style Home) and I did not!! I’m not much on prep work! Just started spraying with the spray paint!
