Greenery on display

I should have shared this for St. Patrick's day. Consider it a belated bit of green celebration.

I love flowers. Loooove flowers.

But sometimes it's nice to let the green bits play the starring role.

Go take a look around this weekend. You might be surprised (and delighted) by all the different shades of green you'll find.

  12. Cool beans about the pesto- I found it last week on an Oprah show about eating healthy on a budget, they had a ton of great recipes! I'm excited to try more after last night's success :).

  15. I like mixing different greens together. One time for a dinner party I was hired for was an Italian theme so I added a bunch of greenery of different shades, artichokes and black olives. It was really neat. I like how you added the green to the white vase. I like it!! Have a golden weekend Rachel! xoxo
