No, definitely I did not planned it, but here I am, exactly a year later writing a post about the same thing, flowers. You see, it was my birthday again, and again my husband brought me flowers, not that he brings me flowers only on my birthdays, no, definitely not.
He knows better,
he knows how happy I feel when, unexpectedely,
he gets home with the most beautiful flowers,
You know my flower arrangements keep changing as I try to keep flowers around as long as possible, no need to buy new ones every week, yet always having flowers on display.
This time, however, I had a small challenge to create a new lovely, long-lasting arrangement from my birthday flowers by simply following my system of cutting back the stems and removing leaves and flowers that have already died. The problem? The flowers were placed in a basket, and to fit in the basket the stems were cut so short...
What did I do? You know I always have some tin cans saved to reuse them in some other creative ways, and that's what I did. I used them to hold small bouquets with just a few blossoms in each one. The effect was a fresh, floral feeling all around the house, like this one I placed in the guest bathroom.
The old maxim 'less is more' is especially true when we place a big bloom alone in a small container.
You don't need to fuss with your flowers, just let their natural curves and tilts make the display look casual and cool.
How cute. Now I'm definitely feeling Springy!
When I did not have any more small tin can left, I used a small enamel cup my mother gave to me. Perfect on my nightstand.
Yes, these are easy and budget-friendly ways to decorate and have flowers displayed at home. The key is to get creative and find simple, yet unique ways to add beauty and life to any space with fresh blooms, but mostly have fun while doing it.
