The Buckets & Blooms Blog

  It’s here.  The craziness of wrapping up the school year and getting ready for summer. For my family, this past weekend was a Maycember weekend.  For starters, we (not really all of us) lost our neighbor’s cat that we were feeding. We don’t have cats of our own and everyone told me more than […]


  What a Party! Getting ready for a party is fun and kind of exhausting.  After all of the planning, ordering, gathering from the yard, and prepping the flowers- I am really ready to get to work.  After the flowers have soaked and gotten a fresh cut, I will check on them multiple times to […]

These belong to […]

Orange Roses…

Pop Up Party!

  Ombré Wreath This is one of my ALL TIME favorite flower pictures. I can’t take credit for this wreath- my friend Wendy (Check out her jewelry that she is making, so pretty!) made this for Easter at our church one year.  It still takes my breath away. LOOK HOW MANY FLOWERS! And- what makes […]

Ombré Easter Wreath and More!

  Aren’t these arrangements sweet? I usually lean towards some serious color when I pick out flowers, but who doesn’t like a pale palate too?
