I read recently that one of the best things you can do for your home is buy a fresh flower arrangement each week. Although I love the concept, I find it isn’t always the best idea for the budget!:) I do however, like to peruse the fresh flower section of the grocery store just to see if they have any great bargains on pretty little flowers…
So, I was thrilled beyond words when I walked into the house the day before Valentine’s Day to discover this on my kitchen table:
As I started to arrange the flowers, I wasn’t sure where I was going to put such a LARGE bouquet. Then, it hit me! I could finally have fresh flowers in every room of the house!:)
I carefully separated the flowers based on color and type, and then just put them in pretty containers I had sitting around.
Here’s how 1 bouquet became 6!:
The white flowers all went into some pretty painted jars and nestled into a wooden tray with some pink pompom garland.
It’s sitting on the fireplace mantel in my office (and is smiling at me right now!:)).
The pink carnations went into a tall painted jar and is a pretty contrast to the blue wall in the main bathroom.
There was a whole bunch of beautiful greenery, so some of it was put into a pitcher and sits on a kitchen shelf.
This pretty lilly greets you as you walk through the door and sits on the entryway dresser.
This pretty red arrangment is on the kitchen table:
And last (but not least!) this little vase of red carnations is perched on a stack of old books in the living room:
Do you like to decorate with pretty little flowers, too? If so, which room do you most often put them in?
