I grew up surrounded by flowers. My mom was a beautiful gardener and horticulture expert, and I was incredibly lucky to grow up with a big backyard that was completely covered in the liveliest plants and most beautifully arranged gardens I’ve ever seen. One step into the backyard and you’d feel as though you had just stepped into a dream.
The look of just-bloomed petals along with their natural scent is a heavenly combination. There’s something about fresh flowers that has the ability to make you feel happy and alive – and that’s why flowers make for such brilliant décor. But why must we limit our displays of floral bouquets to tabletops and windowsills? Wouldn’t it be lovely to discover a vase of flowers hidden in a different spot every day? Today, go buy a bunch of your favorite blossoming buds, and place them in an unexpected place. A place you frequent, but one which you’d never expect such a pretty surprise…
(A little disclaimer: Crochet-wrapped flower vases should only be placed on the stove when it’s not in use. Fire safety, y’all!)
I think flowers in the sink is my favorite idea of all.
