The Winter Blues

The Winter Blues

Happy Winter! It seems after Christmas the Winter blues can start to creep in. The shortened days, bare trees and cold weather here in CT grows old and we long for lovely warm spring days. Though, this year the weather here has been warmer than usual, we still can’t wait to see colorful flowers blooming, green trees and longer days.

I thought I would put together an arrangement that depicts the blue feeling of Winter, but in a lovely way.

These pretty blue flowers are actually from my daughter’s baby shower I had for her this past Sunday. Jennifer is expecting a boy (our first grandchild) in February. Her due date is on the 14th. He might be a Valentine’s Day baby! Though, I think she might go sooner than that. Maybe Groundhog Day instead. If he doesn’t see his shadow…lol.

I wanted to share the floral arrangement with you and decided to call it appropriately, “The Winter Blues”. Jennifer actually thought up the title.

The mix of blue flowers contrast beautifully in the cream color tea pot and wood tray. I added a few snowflake ornaments to the design to give it a almost frosty appearance.

I placed a few pine greens on the bottom of the tray along with cups and a pitcher and created a Winter blues tea theme.

It’s so┬álovely how flowers, even blue ones, can actually brighten a┬ádreary winter day.
