I love the creativity and work you have to put into arranging a bunch of grocery store flowers. Plus you get to choose your own “vases” and sprinkle flowers all over your home! Bathrooms, bedside, kitchen table, kitchen counter…the options are endless, and with a couple cheap bouquets of daisies or whatever is sold at your local grocery store, will go a long way and can add some cheer to your entire home. Currently I’m into blue and white (like I shared in this previous post), but I switch things up often. I just found this old blue willow patterned cream pitcher at a thrift store for $6, and doesn’t it look so pretty with a few pink flowers?
If you’ve been reading for a little while, you probably have realized that I like to use things in unexpected or unique ways, and this isn’t just limited to furniture. Recently I’ve been using pitchers, urns, teapots and other pretty items as vases. While I love florist-made bouquets, I think I’d much rather have a simple bunch of grocery store flowers any day. I cannot stand those simple, ridged glass vases that normally comes with the flowers and I almost always donate them the second I have to throw away the flowers.
Now go “shop” in your china cabinents and bookshelves and see what you can use! I bet you have a darling little pitcher that will look lovely with a few roses next to your bed.
