When Life Hands You Lemons…

I don’t know about you but some days I just need to step away from the computer for a little while to take a breather and to get stuck into some creativity.

Every year I love celebrating Daffodil Day which helps raise vital funds for the Irish Cancer Society and the wonderful work they do. Due to the Covid19 lockdown, this year was a little bit different. On most Daffodil Day’s, I would enjoy roaming through town, making my way towards the garden of rememberance whilst picking up daffodils and pins from the street volunteers along the way. Of course, this year was slightly different, so I made a donation online and purchased as many daff’s as I possibly could.

So I decided to get creative with the beautiful Daffodils I had purchased. I had some roses, tulips & gyp to work with also. They say when life hands you lemons, make lemonade (splash of gin optional) 😉. Well, I made some lemon Bombenni Blooms instead.

1 x Jar 
1 x Bunch of Daffodils 
3 x Tulips
1 x Bunch of Gyp sprigs
3 – 4 Lemons (this will depend on size of jar)  
Some ribbon for finishing effect 

I diced some lemons to sit inside the jar and in the images above & below you will see I was wasting nada – I used the lemon netting for a tie around bow and for a bow sitting within the arrangement and you may also spot our lil’ lemon sun hat 👀 I put in the addition of the little cute sunhat to remind us that even if the skys feel grey and heavy right now, sunnier days are coming! ☀️

I think I was definitely feeling fruity this day as I made use of a pinapple casing too. Hope you like the designs and next time you fancy some fruit, why not give it a go! 💛 x
