Décor Details

Creating a space that features delicate, ethereal details is a wonderful way to celebrate spring holidays, especially Mother’s Day!

Flowers are the perfect way to instantly add beauty and inspiration to your space.

Lighting also plays a pivotal role in setting the scene for an ethereal Mother’s Day gathering. Whether you are hosting a daytime gathering or an evening party, adding candlelight will brighten the space and add delicate, flickering light for a natural glow. Setting the table with both flowers and candles is a great way to create a warm, inviting space for family and guests.

    I’d self paint them, pull in a friend or two and get acrylic paint at any craft store days b4 and simply let them dry, they;ll last thru the shower and most likey peel off easily with soap and water.
    idea: you could paint polka dots on the OUTSIDE of the jars. buy a round pre-filled cirlce dotter and “polk” away in one easy poke1

    Could a person just order flowers through Albertsons? I don’t want them to come prearranged I just want the flowers to arrange myself. Does Albertsons have an option like that?

      CBrubaker, we recommend calling your local store and speaking to someone in the Floral Department. They would have the most accurate information and should be able to assist you. Thank you -Cornelius
