    Guest Post by Ashley Beyer, of Tinge Floral


    There are a number of beautiful flower combinations for corsages. Some flowers will hold up longer than others and it's important to remember that when choosing flowers for a corsage. Peach has become a pretty neutral in the wold of flowers and the Juliette Garden Rose would be a perfect compliment to a number of different dress options. The garden rose is romantic and almost renaissance looking while still looking youthful. Peach pairs well with darker shades of coral, navy, cream, mustard and even emerald.


    Another alternative to the wrist corsage would be a pretty hair comb. Adding a few blooms to hair comb you can find at any grocery store is simple and can really add something special to your over all look. Roses will generally keep and stay looking pretty for a few hours so you can dance the night away. Ranunculus if wired and taped properly are also a pretty option. Taking a few larger blooms and adding a few filler flowers to add texture and color will really help your hair comb stand out amongst the crowd. 

     See the hair comb tutorial on The Alison Show.


    Adore Ashley's work? Here's more about her!

    I started my business after years of working with other florists on weddings and big events. In high school I worked at a flower shop and always loved the environment but never considered it as a career path. Only recently after working on big events did I realize that this was something I really felt passionate about. 
    Tinge came after a long couple of months trying to decide the best name to represent me and my brand. I love color and new that color was something I wanted to set me apart from other florists in the area. I kept researching and thinking and after many no's I finally came to Tinge. 
    I typically do weddings, but love an occasional inspiration shoot or event. These opportunities allow me to be creative and not worry about what a client wants. In these instances I can create something all on my own that really represents me and what I'm trying to convey as a florist.


    Fun fact: Ashley recently decorated our booth at The Vintage Whites Market in Salt Lake City! Here is a photo of the floral arrangement she created for us:


    More photos of the event and decor are coming soon!

    Add a touch of cuteness to your spring table decor with this felt bunny DIY project!



    Felt (white and pink)
    Needle & thread (white)
    Pom poms (white)




    1. Draw, trace, or print out a bunny outline to use as a template.

    2. Once you have a template, place it onto the white felt and use it to cut out two bunny shapes.

    3. Use the same template to cut out two bunny ears from the pink felt. These will be used for the inner portion of the bunny's ears.


    4. Stitch one pink ear onto each bunny. Make sure that the pink portion of the ear is on the side of the bunny that will be facing inwards.

    5. Place one bunny cut out on top of the other. Use a needle and thread to stitch the two pieces together along the border of the body. Make sure to leave the bottom part open. 

    6. For the tail, sew a white pom pom onto the back of the bunny.

    7. Feel free to add more details such as eyes and a cute nose!


    8. Roll a piece of leftover felt and place it inside the bunny to help prop it up.

    9. You're done! :)



    P.S. See these bunnies in our free spring e-cards!

    For a vintage-inspired style, we love the idea of displaying vintage plates on the wall. Usually this is done indoors, but if you're having a spring party, why not bring them outdoors? Here's how we hung vintage plates in our spring lookbook.



    Museum Putty




    1. Gather a collection of cute tea plates. You can find inexpensive ones at your local thrift shop or goodwill.

    2. Affix 2 or 3 small pieces of museum putty to the back of each plate.

    3. Firmly press the plates onto a wall.

    4. Cover your wall with as many as you like and enjoy!

    Transform old vintage finds into something new! For our spring lookbook, we revamped an old croquet set into a cute prop. You could also use this for spring parties or decor. Note: You can find an inexpensive croquet set online or at local garage sales, thrift stores, etc. We found ours for $5 on Goodwill’s website!



    Croquet Set
    Spray paint
    Acrylic paint
    Paint brush



    1. Choose a color that you’d like to paint your croquet mallet with and start spray painting! You’ll have to paint one side and allow time for it to dry before flipping the mallet over to paint the other side.


    2. Once the paint on the croquet mallet has dried, use a small paint brush and acrylic to decorate your mallet with stripes. Feel free to use as many different colors as you’d like!


    3. Make it a set by painting the croquet balls in matching colors! To paint each croquet ball, you’ll have to spray paint one side and allow time to dry before painting the other side.


    4. Have fun!
