mini chrysanthemum from {nifty thrifty things}

Welcome to this week's {floral friday}!

This week I'm sharing the mini Chrysanthemum with you. My mom gave these to my brother for his birthday and took some beautiful pictures of them. I love how dainty and elegant they look!

    Think I much prefer the mini chrysanthemum to the regular ( do they have the same strong scent?). They are oh so cute!
