As many of you know, every month we like to delight in one inexpensive- as well as in some cases free- bouquet to keep things feeling fresh around right here (the concept really stemmed from a very wonderful Christmas present from the hubs a while back). as well as because July was our anniversary month, we chose to honor that truth with some gladiolus stems that we snagged for a tune at the grocery store a few weeks back (just $2.39 for the entire bouquet!).
What do gladiolus stems have to finish with our anniversary? Well, three years back we whipped up garden themed favors for our backyard wedding. We just chosen up easy brown small paper bags at Target as well as dropped a single gladiolus bulb into each one for our guests’ garden. We even added simple handwritten planting directions on the back of each bag (they were one of the only bulbs that might be planted that late in the season). Clipped to the front of the bag was a photostrip (tying in with our photostrip save-the-date as well as the actual photobooth that we rented for the event) as well as the strip on the favor featured John’s deal with covered in lipstick kisses while we held indications that read: plant one… on us! *smooooch*

Believe it or not, numerous of our buddies as well as household members planted their gladiolus bulbs as well as really get to delight in their own bit backyard blooms every summertime when they sprout (my mother sends us photos of hers each year without fail). however because ours never bloom (they shoot up leaves however don’t get sufficient sun to flower) we opted to pick up this under $3 bouquet to fill the void.
We like the wonderful pink color as well as the tall sculptural stalks. particularly paired with my fun curvy eco-friendly vase (a birthday gift from John’s sibling from Crate & Barrel).
So although we didn’t get a possibility to share our July bouquet in July, we figured it was much better late than never. as well as before you understand it we’ll be back with our August blooms so we’re sure not to miss those this time. however sufficient about us.
