My moments with flowers

With belle bouquets

This week is all about those special moments we celebrate with flowers…and if you are anything like me, I don’t need an excuse to faff about with flowers but if I must. Our sponsor Lisel from @bellebouquets created this hashtag herself and we thought it only fitting to embrace this and make it our challenge for the week.

With Mother’s Day fast approaching in some parts of the world, it’s the perfect time to perhaps honour those special moments with your Mum or as a Mother yourself…what Mum doesn’t love flowers! Lisel has even shared a little blog on how you can create your own paper bouquet for your Mum, or yourself.

Our guest host Tracey from @traceyc1968 is a very proud Mother herself and you might be familiar with her beautiful flower faffing…I can’t think of a better person to host this challenge. Tracey will be with us all week sharing her favourites and telling us about her moments with flowers.

So whilst Mother’s Day is a good excuse to celebrate with flowers, we are open to any moments with flowers. From those roses you have been lovingly growing in your garden to your petal arranging that gives you some well deserved me time, show us your moments with flowers! I have a feeling this is going to be a very beautiful week.

Theme: My moments with flowers #cs_mymomentswithflowers

Sponsor: Belle Bouquets @bellebouquets
Dates: 6th - 13th May 2019
Prizes: First prize winner will receive an arrangement made from paper flowers and faux foliage with vase valued at AU$150. One lucky runner-up will win a King Protea made from Paper valued at AU$80 and another runner-up will receive a bunch of 5 stem David Austen Roses valued at AU$80.

Creative Confessions

Thanks to Faking Beautiful

We want to know how you fake it! How do you fake it till you make it? We want you to spill the beans on your little styling secrets and divulge those creative confessions. It’s a week of ‘real versus reel’ 

I wish I could afford fresh blooms every week but I can’t so I have my own means of faking it in my flatlays.  Bianca from @white.grey.all.day, our super stylish guest host this week, gets away with it by using fake flowers  yep folks, these are fake can you believe it? These beauties are from @fakingbeautiful, our sponsor this week, who make the art of faking it simply beautiful! It’s not all about flowers either, you might not be blessed with a green thumb and secretly use some plants of the plastic variety in those epic shelfies, we won’t judge  You might actually style all those ‘on the bed’ shots on your living room floor, your cool concrete floor might be a simple backdrop or your bathroom shots might actually be your kitchen bench #guilty

Simply explain how you are ‘faking it’ in your caption, add pics or videos to the carousel of your image or share your ‘behind the scenes’ snaps in your Insta stories. No sophisticated editing or photoshopping steps required [unless that’s your thing and you don’t mind sharing 🤷🏼‍♀️ ]...just those little white lies or tricks of the trade that help you to get that perfect Insta shot 😊

You just might help and inspire a fellow creative or two along the way to try something new because #sharingiscaring
