It may be bleak and blustery outside, but one sure way of breathing the freshness of spring into your home? Flowers! In most parts of the country, your garden (like mine) is still fast asleep- so let’s turn to our local grocery store to help us get our “refresh” on! I love spray roses. You get so many flower heads out of just one bunch, and if you get them when they’re just starting to open, they last a good week or more! My favorite place to buy flowers is, hands down, The Fresh Market. In fact, all of my sister’s wedding flowers came straight off of their shelves! A dozen roses for under $10? Yes please . The spray roses I purchased this week were actually only $5 a bunch. So I got two.
Rather than make one large stellar display, I prefer to make up loads of mini bouquets so that every room of the house can have a fragrant touch of beauty. On the bathroom sinks, window sills, nightstands, piano…all little breaths of spring! Mini arrangements work perfectly in my home because the backdrop is neutral, and my house is casual and small.
If your home is larger and more formally decorated, you may want to focus on larger bouquets in order to make an impact. Mini nosegays might just get lost in a spacious room with grand furnishings.
For some seasonal interest, you could add some evergreens and herbs from your yard to the bouquets:
So go add a beautiful bouquet of flowers to your grocery list this week!
It is certain to help refresh your home and your spirit!
