Fun with Flowers

There is a small library in the center of my town that hosts a "Books and Bloom" event every May. Around 30 very clever and talented people chose a book and interpret it with flowers. This year, two of my Garden Club friends and I chose "The Help" by Katherine Stockett. We arranged mostly soft pink and white southern flowers surrounded by Magnolia leaves (representing the "Southern Belles" who hired the "Help") in small white training potty with a lid that I found on line. The toilet sits on a polished silver tray with the polish and the rag, on top of an apron, on top of a damask linen tablecloth.

 The event is tonight and the arrangements will be on display from 10 - 2 tomorrow. 
Check it out! 
I've got to get dressed! 


  1. The arrangement is beautiful and very creative.

  2. I read The Help and this arrangement is perfect! Very creative!

  3. This was one of the most talked about arrangements at Books in Bloom over the weekend. Loved it!
    The Help was also one of the most circulated books at The James Library this past year. Bravo Nancy and Co.
