But these two months also contain nine out of the 23 birthdays in our family (my husband’s and my parents, our siblings, and their families). That’s 39% of the birthdays in just two months! By the time May rolls around—a month when we have no birthdays—we’re ready for a break!
The celebrations of the next few weeks include the Shamrocks, Easter baskets, bunnies, and eggs common to the season. But our group also consumes a ton of cake, ice cream, wrapping paper, and birthday candles!
In among all these celebrations, we have to have some flowers!
Whether they’re part of an Easter centerpiece or a birthday bouquet, flowers are an integral part of this season. It’s a great opportunity for me to get creative with colors, textures, and whimsical elements.
And if I have flowers left over, there’s always another holiday or birthday to celebrate the next week!
