This is not the case anymore. My father came by our house on Monday and gave me the annual Valentine’s Day flowers. Usually they are the typical red roses *yawn*. Red roses cost a ton in February. and are so cliché. This year was way cooler. I normally hate carnations. But I am a total sucker for an interesting color scheme. He chose the most beautiful magenta, deep purple, and lavender blooms.
I trimmed the stems, then put them in my favorite trusty “vases” (see that post here).
I first placed them on the good ol impulse buy. It didn’t have as much punch as I’d like.
Onto the Wooden Wonderland (aka our dining room). I have my sparkly tubes as a center piece, but it seemed like a better fit. The flowers added a much-needed pop of color.
This turned into a photo shoot before work. Sorry. I can’t get enough of the colors!
I think I need to buy colorful flowers once a week. Seriously. It makes me so happy when I see fresh flowers in my house! A cheap, full flower can make me smile. I can’t explain why.
How do you add pops of color to your house without spending a ton of money?
