Everything Is Just Peachy

Last week Studio Choo had a large wedding that needed lots of arrangements. One of the many elements within those arrangements were peaches. The problem with having a peach in an arrangement is that you can’t just throw it in the vase with the other flowers. You need to give it a stem. The easiest way to do that is to put the peach on a skewer. So that’s exactly what I did.

Things you may need if you choose to skewer peaches: skewers, a peach, and floral glue.

First, you dab a tiny amount of floral glue where you want the skewer to go. As you put the skewer in, you twist it just a bit to get the glue inside.

Voila, skewered peaches.

And you can totally eat the peaches when you’re done!

Just kidding, the floral glue isn’t edible.

Seriously, don’t eat that glue.

Steel Magnolias

In case you didn’t know, magnolias aren’t steel. But I did steal a magnolia the other day.

A few weeks ago I had an discussion with a friend about whether or not it was magnolia season.  Well, it is magnolia season, and they’ve been on my mind ever since then. They’re blooming on trees everywhere, especially on a few that line the street I live on. Unfortunately for my five foot self, most of the blooms rest closer to the top of very tall trees. But to my surprise I saw flower, close enough for me to reach, calling my name. As soon as I got home I got my clippers, chopped off the magnolia, and stuck it in a vase.

Nobody told me (granted I never asked) that magnolias smell terrible. I was always too short to smell them on the tree myself.

I guess that’s what I get for stealing a magnolia.
