    I came across your blog while researching “lemon invitations.” I have a question about your baby shower invitations that you posted in April 2007. For my daughter’s 9-year-old birthday party she wants to have a lemon yellow party. I LOVE the style and idea of what you did. Can you share your resource for the pretty boxes, invites, and matching labels?

    My grandad used to grow carnations in his garden and I always associate the fragrance with him and his garden. I love that they’re affordable enough to buy a ginormous bunch too. And they last. I can’t remember why we ever hated them!

    Happy to be part of the “I was a carnation lover before loving carnations were cool” club. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This reminded me that my cute brother bought his wife a huge bouquet of pink gladiolas and then my mom kinda wrinkled her nose a bit.. because they were hating on gladiolas in her day.. but I love every flower including dandelions.. (I just don’t want them in my lawn..) and.. gladiolas are a lot of flower power for your buck..

    yeah. definitely hard to convert to any affinity for carnations. but martha can make anything look cool.

    I didn’t get the memo — thanks for telling me, as this makes me very happy. I’ve always loved how fluffy carnations are — they’re like the pom-pons of the flower world. Glad to see they’re getting their cred back.

    I wonder if they’ll have a campaign. “Carnations: Not just for funerals anymore.”

    Beautiful (: PS I don’t think it’s cool to hate on any flowers, unless it’s truly and irrevocably horrible, like the world’s largest flower [Rafflesia something?]

    i loved this arrangment too. i ripped it out for my file. i love how inexpensive this arrangement is to make on a grand scale as well.
