March 23rd, 2012 - Bring Spring Flowers Indoors!

Spring has sprung, just look at the weather garden! Flowers are blooming everywhere. And what better way to add a little spring to your home than bringing some of those flowers, indoors.

There's nothing like fresh flowers and a lot of us get fresh flowers for our birthdays and of course Valentine's and that type of thing, but why not treat yourself every week to fresh flowers.

That's what we do in my household. We always have on our coffee table some type of vase with fresh flowers in it. And you don't have to spend a lot of money because you can go to the grocery store, for instance, and you can buy these inexpensive mums.

Buy the mums that have a little bit different look to it. These are a dark burgundy with a white edge they don't look like fall, they just look like they could be spring or summer or any type of season.

I always mix in some yellow. Yellow is the first color the eye is attracted to. It also gives you a smile on your face because it is so vibrant and bright and it's a great contrast to most colors.

Or why not go out in your yard? Here I have this little vase of daffodils and they are blooming right now in my yard so I took full advantage of it. Let's be honest, how much time to we spend outside just looking at flowers? Not a lot. So why not bring them inside where we seem to hang the most? Don't forget about the container.

Do something fun. Whenever you travel find a little vase all you need is a little vase with a few flowers on it to give you a big look. I always stack them on books and containers because it's like a pedestal now I have a beautiful display that not only puts a smile on my face but it puts a smile on my family's face and all my friends.
