Aileen’s bouquet Monday: Green lady’s slipper bouquet

Clean, fresh, and bright. It’s like biting into a granny smith apple! How could you go wrong with a bouquet of stunning green lady slipper orchids and white roses?

Aileen’s Bouquet Monday: Succulent bouquet

Succulents are absolutely amazing. They have an earthy aesthetic and bloom in a variety of shapes.
