Happy Pinterest Challenge Tuesday, friends! I missed the cutoff for this month’s official Pinterest Challenge with Cindy of County Road 407 and friends, but I thought I’d share my post with you as if I were with the main group anyway…
The challenge this month was to create a spring door basket and I immediately thought of creating one for our shed’s entry door. I love its nine lights ~ so similar to the window panes here from the post Simple Front Door Decorating Ideas by Karen from Sanctuary Home Decor.
The basket Karen created here has blush peonies combined with deeper pink tulips, dusty miller and what looks to be fresh eucalyptus leaves ~ really beautiful!
Realistic faux blooms
For this basket arrangement, I chose four soft pink rose buds in place of the inspiration photo’s tulips. For the peonies, I used several shades of faux pink rose blooms plus dried baby’s breath and eucalyptus sprays.
These realistic blooms came from Ralph’s, a local grocery store near where we lived in Murrieta, California. These blossoms even have realistic thorns which are poky just like the real thing along their stems! They were the perfect choice to take the place of peonies, plus, they fit in with my style.
Adding a sweet sign was the cherry on the top. 🙂
That’s my version of this month’s challenge!
I wish we hadn’t been so busy with car troubles, two IOOF meetings last week, a dog who wakes up every night (seven times last night… 2 1/2 hours I was awake) making me a groggy human during the day… I would have remembered to shoot these photos a lot sooner and make the cut-off! Oh, well! Next time. 😉
Enjoy the big tour, friends. I’ll link over to Cindy’s blog for everyone on the tour. <3
Big spring hugs to you,
