This month’s foraging  excursion was as fun as ever! We kept it a little light-hearted with a nod to a St. Patty’s Day table arrangement. But truly, it’s just as beautiful to keep these rhodies (that’s what we call rhododendrons for short), and dried hydrangea in a vase around your house all year long. Having fresh greens around is sure to boost your winter blues!

We also brought you two super fun DIYs. The first DIY is a simple way to spruce up your average glass vases you have lying around the house with a little gold (or whatever color you fancy) for the bottom half. The second DIY was our fun experiment with dying dried hydrangea. Feel free to try it with some other fleurs, it doesn’t just have to be the hydrangea!
