Fresh FlowersThursday, June 30, 2011
I absolutely LOVE having fresh flowers in my house. They are so pretty and so colorful... they make me happy. A bunch of cheery sunflowers can brighten up a room and an aromatic bunch of peonies can bring some elegance to the center of a table.
Peonies are so beautiful! I love that these are in a simple mason jar. Just a note about peonies; the lighter the peony color the more fragrant they are AND when you buy them, make sure that most of the buds are closed pretty tight because they open up really fast!

Orchids are simple and elegant plus they last a lot longer than your standard bouquet. I had a white one in my bathroom and it added that little oomph that makes a big difference.

Love, LOVE this room! The yellow tulips compliment all the blues in this room so well!

I love this idea of a "floating vase". Just hang flowers anywhere and everywhere!
