What theme, what theme, what theme? When contemplating which theme to have for my son’s 8th birthday party, we thought of many different options. My son proposed Captain Underpants. After I explained to my son that mommy goes WAY too far into a theme to have a Captain Underpants party, we ultimately decided on Mario. Evan and his dad like to play Mario games so the theme seemed appropriate. Evan and Daddy helped me with all the Mario questions, and when it was said and done, we picked well!

Oooooohhhhhhh, Monday!!! It’s the beginning of another week, and I’m getting back in the swing of my work as a blogger after a fun-filled weekend. In the middle of my social media marketing, a notification arrived from Lysa Humildad, Sagebrush Farm, NV blog. Much to my surprise, I read that exciting news that I have been selected for a Blogger Recognition Award! I felt so honored that Lysa would think of Food Flowers and Festivities, especially considering I’ve only launched two months ago!
I’m sure you’ve contemplated starting a blog for a long time. You have drooled over beautiful blogs that are established and thought to yourself, ‘hey I’d like to try that some day!’ You decide that you are not going to say some day one more time! You are going to go for it! You spend months perfecting the look of your blog, writing engaging content, and getting your site up and running. Now you’re ready to launch your blog, and NOW the work begins! It can be very overwhelming to know where to start promoting your blog. Below we have included some ideas to get you started on the right path.
It’s lime season at the Lam household which means lots of lime-aide, freshly squeezed lime to enhance our food, and yes, even limes in my flower arrangements! We have an AMAZING cocktail tree in the backyard. This tree has grafts of many citrus fruits in a single tree so you do not get a huge amount of each citrus when the season arrives. We get Meyer lemons, grapefruits, limes, and mandarin oranges all in one tree! Cool, right? If you live in a zone where you can grow citrus, I highly recommend this tree (I would say zone 7 or lower). Now for the flower arrangement; you could create this arrangement with Meyer lemons, fruits that are a little more cold hardy (would do ok in zone 8).
