It Started With A Cabbage

I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday for a few supplies.  Is it ever possible to get out of that store without spending extra money?  Not often for me.  Of all things, I saw this silk cabbage that I had to have. 


I loved the ruffled edges and the writing.  They had it in white, pink, and green.  As you can see, I went with the green.  I had every intention of putting it away until Spring was a little closer, but I couldn’t stand it.  So Spring arrived early in my dining room.


The arrangement went in the shallow bowl that sits on my scale.  I used burlap garland for filler.


Pale green hydrangeas and white tulips.


One blue hydrangea and a giant cabbage leaf in back.


And it still wasn’t full enough so what the heck, I stuck a bird nest in one side.


Very Spring looking.  Maybe I’ll add a few carrots and a bunny closer to Easter.


Not the best pic.   You can even see my unpainted woodwork in the background.   The dining room is coming along.  Sloooowwwwly.  I’m enjoying my Spring floral though!

Have a Happy week!



  1. It makes a nice addition to your arrangement, Denise! I haven't been in Hobby Lobby for awhile, just for the reason that I tend to get distracted.
