How to create a classic bud vase arrangement with the Hibiscus Bud Vase from Vietri.

STEP 1- Create a Base

It’s really easy, start with a base of some simple airy greenery. Here we are using some bupleurum that we picked up in a bouquet of greens at Trader Joe’s. But you could get adventurous and use herbs or other greenery you might have growing around the house. 


Hint- As you put your glower in keep turning the vase to make sure it looks good from all sides. 



STEP 2 - Select A Focal Point Flower

Here we are using a fantastic orange rose as our focal point flower. Make sure to cut all your elements short when working with a bud vase. You want a tight, compact display.


STEP 3 - Fill In

Once you have your green layer and focal flower in place, start filling in with smaller flowers and other textures. Here we are using coleus and rose hips as an interesting texture and color. 

Hint - Your longest stem should not be more than 1-1/2 times the height of the vase.



STEP 4 - Sit Back And Admire!

"Beautiful Skin Requires Commitment, Not a Miracle"

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 2:40 PM

I've always been pretty loyal to my own skin care regimen.

I'm talking 10 years loyal!

Enter Erbario Toscano's Olive Complex skin care line of products.  These products contain organic Tuscan olive oil that works to nourish and restore your skin.

Dialing in a good skin care routine isn't just an overnight process so I've tried this new line of products over a period of seven weeks so far.

IMG_2316Here are some of the highlights:

Daily Face Washing:  The Refreshing Cleansing Milk  left my face feeling so very clean and moisturized. I would follow up about once a week with the Gentle Face Scrub to exfoliate dead cells and impurities.

Toning:  The Purifying Tonic Lotion, with its blend of botanical waters really toned and soothed my face.

Eyes:  I used the Eye Serum on my eyelids to combat dark circles and puffiness.  I liked it because eye products, in the past, have left my eyes feeling irritated.

Anti-Aging: Using the Lift Serum on my face and neck, I saw a difference as it left my skin feeling more supple and pliable. *NOTE: As a warning to those with nut alleriges, the Lift Serum does include a walnut extract.

An alternative to the Lift Serum is the water based anti-aging Pure Rose Face Cream.

Face Mask:  To round out my new routine, The Regenerating Face Mask revitalized my face and provided the much needed hydration that my dry skin was begging for.  For me, this was the star of the show and a must have!

We are now carrying this line of products in our store.  If you're looking to try something new with your skin care regimen, stop in and give it a try!

"Invest in your skin. It's going to be with you for a long time."

**All available to for purchase online!
