Jessica and I stumbled onto something ah-mazing and we can’t wait to share it with you. How does fields of gorgeous, blooming, colourful blossoms as far as the eye can see sound? In a few weeks time this place will be blowing up your social media and the hordes will descend, so you must grab your bestie and GO GO GO asap! Lavender-schmlavendar – all aboard the dahlia train!
Jess and I haven’t been to Ottawa in years. The last time I went, I was probably still in my teens and likely unimpressed with our Nation’s Capital. As luck would have it, both Jess and I had the opportunity to visit Ottawa separately for work and we decided to make a road trip out of it! Ottawa is a good long drive from Toronto (about five hours) and the drive takes you through some seriously cute towns. Looking to stretch our legs and do a bit of exploring, we pulled off the highway at Gananoque – a seriously instagrammable little town.
We’ve shared our love for Coriander Girl on the blog before. Hands down our favourite florist in Toronto, Coriander Girl is the Toronto flower shoppe to get all floral needs done. If you’re thinking about going somewhere else, don’t. The lovely ladies at Coriander Girl are especially known for their hand-tied bouquets and stunning textured centrepieces at weddings. When Coriander Girl invited us to join in their Spring Garden Plant Arrangement Workshop we were thrilled! Just in time for Mother’s Day, Coriander Girl is putting together beautiful planters that mom is going to adore, and they asked us to share them with our T&C readers! Even better, these planters can last for months and mom will think of you every time she sees these beautiful blooms!
I’m so excited for this blogpost because it’s our inaugural DIY post – Yippee! Jess and I don’t consider ourselves super crafty but we do have a few good ideas rattling around for DIY’s that are cute, simple and quick. Perfect for when you get in a crafty artsy mood. Today, we’re sharing an easy way to spruce up ugly plastic planters that come with cheapie flowers or herbs. We love picking up flowers or herbs but we hate the plain containers. We found a super simple way to transform plain plastic or terra cotta containers into pretty braided clay planters in 45 minutes!
Valentine’s Day is upon us once again! Hurrah! For most ladies (and gents) with a special someone, Valentine’s Day matters. The fact that V-Day matters really isn’t debatable my darlings. For some, February 14th is just another day, but for others, Valentine’s Day is the best day of the year to say “I love you” in a special way.
