Fresh Flowers Make Me Smile

Ahhhhh, the smell, the color the way they light up a room... nothing beats fresh flowers.  Now, my TH is great at bringing them home for me when he knows he is in trouble, but I like them ALL the time, not just after an argument. So each week I set aside some of our budgeted money to lighten up our home and keep me smiling throughout each day.

Love this happy colorful bouquet
If I am unable to get to the Farmer's Market for fresh blooms, I always go to Costco.  I find that they have a great selection for a great price.  I even got ALL my white wedding roses from Costco... so I totally trust their green thumb!

My wedding flowers - (all time favorite) hydrangeas, with white roses and lavender
In case you couldn't tell, hydrangeas are my favorite!
Gorgeous flowers, fresh from the farmer's market
As soon as I bring my gorgeous stems home I grab mason jars, coffee mugs and old bottles to showcase my flowers all throughout the house.  I have them on the kitchen counter, coffee table, my "getting ready table", in the bathroom and hanging from my vintage coat rack! I LOVE them!

Recycled bottles, mint ribbon and a pop of color with fresh blooms!
Pretty in pink with a touch of mason jar!
Same bottles, same ribbon, different stems...
Gotta love these Costco picks!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE hydrangeas, honestly, obssessed

Coffee mug? Mason? How about both!

The flowers usually last at least a week, often times two.  They are easily the best money I spend all month!  What about you? Do you like fresh flowers to brighten your home and spirit?
