A BERRY GOOD TEACHER

We are lucky to have a large strawberry farm close by, and we visit often during Strawberry Season!  The children love to pick the berries and have a hard time finding a way to stop because they see ripe berries in every direction!  We decided to put a few baskets together for teachers as a thank you for a "BERRY GOOD YEAR", and I wanted to share the idea with you...simple, pretty, yummy, and healthy!

A Garden of Gift Ideas

I loved getting to spend some time with Luci Furlow of Seasonal Color Greenhouses, Inc. to come up with some gift ideas!  Luci has planted beautiful pots for me for teacher gifts, and I wanted to share a few ideas with you!I love how beautiful this pink geranium is- and how perfect it looks planted and tied with a bow!  A great gift to last through the summer and to brighten anyone's day!

If you have several teachers to buy for, these adorable little buckets filled with a flowering plant or an herb make a great gift idea!  Here, we used basil and mint.  I love how the herbs can be planted and used forever!

A sweet note to the teacher that says, "We were "mint" to be together!  I will miss you!"  would be a cute addition.  Or, "You were "mint" to be my teacher!  I love you!"  You could also add your favorite recipe that includes mint (or any herb of your choice). 

I also love how Luci shows how easily you can create a thoughtful gift for a teacher or hostess (or birthday, or housewarming, etc.) using a geranium, a container of your choice, and ribbon...

QUICK AND BEAUTIFUL!

Luci emphasizes how easy it is to create a great gift in a short amount of time by using plants and simple containers. 

Seasonal Color Greenhouses is a wholesale distributor throughout the southeast that is owned by Luci and Mack Furlow.  In addition to their wholesale distribution, they offer a unique service that you can enjoy at home.  Luci will plant your garden containers and/or porch containers and you can, literally, enjoy seasonal colors year round.  Luci offers on-site container plantings or will pick up, plant, and deliver!

She even does front doors!!

THANK YOU, LUCI AND MACK, FOR SHARING YOUR GREENHOUSE WITH US- AND YOUR GIFT IDEAS!
