Lavish Retreat

Over the weekend, we (my sister Rosalind, my daughter Brittany, and me) traveled to Oakland to visit my daughter Camille and her twin girls.  My daughter, Alethea and her baby Eliza from Steamboat Springs joined us  for a girl's only retreat.  On arrival at the historic Claremont Resort, we found lovely flowers arranged by Camille, who is her spare time from part ownership of Walrus, works part time as a floral designer.
 And a gift basket filled with all sorts of treats....
Gift basket for Rosalind from Camille, Alethea, and Brittany 
The scents from the flowers perfumed the air for the entire weekend and then traveled to Camille's house for a Sunday morning brunch with cousins.  

On all the elevator lobbies in the spa section of the hotel were console tables filled with orchids.
So we were surrounded by the flowers for the weekend.

I am linking to Jane's "Flowers in the House Party" over at her blog, Small but Charming.  Click on over to see more lovely blossoms.  And don't forget to walk your neighborhood to see what is blooming outside as well.
