Floral Sangria

The secret to making the perfect sangria is mixing just the right amounts of wine, fruits and sodas. Sangria is a delightful beverage that originated from Spain. Designing an captivating celebration for your visual senses using flowers and fruits was the high point of my day.  I waited 5 days so that the pink Floyd roses were ripened, perfectly fermented like a fine Merlot. A white garden roses concentrate was added for body. Jasmine vine was added with the right amount of sweetness. Fresh raspberries were put into the mixture that just soaks up the flavor of the roses. Tangy coleus compliments the berries and vines while the dianthus adds the fizz.

Miniature Stone Dominos

After a day at the beach collecting beautiful rocks in all different sizes and shapes I went through them all and separated the small black ones from the mound I had. I washed them in a warm soapy bath and let me dry completely. I used white acrylic paint to create the domino dots and lines. I let them dry and sprayed with clear coat spray paint. Now my dominos are ready to be played with.
