Paula and I both have a great love of orchids, but I seem to keep them alive in my home; she somehow kills all of them.
So I was recently at a friend’s house and noticed they had stunning orchids. I asked her what her secret was, her response LiveOak Orchids. I couldn’t get the number quick enough from her to give to Paula. This company has transformed Paula’s home into an orchid showplace. Now everyone who visits the house comments on Paula’s orchids.
They are low upkeep and add great color to any home. Check out LiveOak Orchids on Facebook, they ship too! Paula has a great collection of containers that we place the orchids.
We change up the containers often and put in different locations. We love to keep white orchids in Paula’s bathroom to blend with all the marble. I like a punch of color in the foyer to welcome guests. Take a look at my pictures I took this morning and I hope it inspires you to bring an orchid or two into your home.
Here’s a picture of Paula’s foyer. Doesn’t the pop of color seem so inviting?
Another punch of color down the hallway.
Paula loves the majolica container that these orchids are in. We use it throughout the year and fill it with seasonal foliage – something for each holiday! It’s also really good for her orchids, too!
Look at how pretty this all white orchid is! We put it in this really pretty and natural sea sponge container. It really accents the coastal theme that’s found throughout Paula’s home.
i was wondering if you could share the recipe for the chiken/grape salad-the one that is pictured on the croissant above?

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition.
Blessings and Happy Easter!!
