Saucers of the Month: Lily of the Valley in May

What do Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy and Kate Middleton have in common? They all used Lily of the Valley in their wedding bouquets. In fact, Kate had about 100 stems in her modest but elegant bouquet.

For being such a small flower, Lily of the valley gives off such a tremendous scent. The flowers look like a small bell and they are generally usually white, although sometimes with a tinge of pink as well. Pull together a bunch of Lily of the Valley to make adorable, tiny bouquets.

Lily of the valley has the flower meaning of ‘return to happiness’ — humility, chastity, sweetness, purity and is said to bring luck in love.

Next month I will be featuring roses for the month of June. Are you enjoying this new feature? If so, I would love to hear about it.


Share one. For keepsake.

Exciting news! I am announcing my very first contest E-V-E-R! The idea is that every time you share one of my china saucer videos on Facebook or Instagram, you will increase your chances of winning a one-of-a-kind vintage saucer ring holder (featured in the image below). I have had quite a few shares on Facebook so far, with the first video just launched a few days getting 356 views already. Woo hoo! And on Instagram, please share who I am and what I do and use @paigesmith_heirloomkeepsakes and #heirloomkeepsakes. There are also apps like Repost and Regram to help with the sharing process.

Here are a few beautiful saucers that were featured in the latest video. With Mother’s Day coming up around the corner, they would also make a wonderful gift to say ‘thanks’.
