Flower Power

One of the easiest, least expensive ways to freshen any space is with flowers.

From the grocery store, from your yard or your neighbors yard (not really-unless you ask)

Bring fresh flowers in to your space and see what happens!

Who doesn’t love fresh flowers!

Not only are they beautiful, but they are one of the least expensive items that we can add to our homes to make it welcoming.

These are a bunch from Wal-Mart.

Place them in a Mason Jar, formally a spaghetti sauce container.

And they dress-up your coffee table.

Walk around your yard and see what’s in bloom, cut some ivy and

gather all your white vases

to create a welcoming entrance.

This is a sunflower from the grocery store.

It only took a few of them for this table setting.

One bunch of white tulips and more ivy from the yard.

Put the finishing touches on my black kitchen table.

Five dollars for the blue mason jars from a yard sale.

and $6 dollars for the daisies from Sam’s dress up my mantel.

A bunch of fresh flowers in a tin can, from my nieces wedding.

Hydrangeas from last year. 

I shared this at Kristin’s last month, I just love fresh flowers and wanted to share it with you :)

    I agree flowers are a quick and easy thing to do. I have a gerber daisy from my flower bed cut and in a bud vase. I have also cut some other flowers from outside and put them in bud vases around the house.

    Mmmmmmm.. I am imagining the smell. I love fresh flowers. An instant mood lifter.
    Couldn’t help but notice the brown transferware plate in one of the table settings… my weakness.
    Thanks for sharing :-)
    Cheers, Gee

    Love this post. How did you get the stubborn labels off the spagetti jar? Those orange sunflowers are incredible! What grocery store and when?

    Nothing better than fresh flowers. Tulips, lilacs, carnations, snapdragons….and sunflowers. I love sunflowers! Great pictures. Have a wonderful day :)

    Debbie,
    My mother would leave fresh bouquets on our night tables when we were children and it is something I have continued into my adulthood. There is never a day when there isn’t fresh flowers in every room of the Fairfield House. There are people that believe flowers are a luxury or a waste of money. I consider them a blessing and sweet reminder, no matter what the day holds, life is beautiful. All your arrangements are gorgeous. I can almost smell the lovely fragrance.
    Your Friend,
    Deborah

    Oh my gosh, Debbie! Gorgeous! I so wish I had a green thumb! Unfortunately, mine is BLACK. I pretty much kill everything I plant. LOL! Love how you displayed them all. Beautiful!
