Looking for a get-well gift? Or a way to say I love you? It’s simple: flowers. A timeless, traditional and thoughtful way to tell someone you’re thinking of them. Or maybe you’re just searching for something to spruce up the kitchen? Nothing breathes life into a room like a fresh bouquet.
So here are some tips to consider when you’re putting together your beautiful bunch of flowers:
1. Pick up a vase from your local thrift store. These quirky and original vases can not only be chosen to match the flowers but are often a cheaper option, leaving you more money to spend on flowers.
2. Supplement to your bouquet by picking flowers from your garden or local flowers. Wild flowers can add some welcome color and variety, and don’t rule out ivy and the like -- embrace unexpected combinations!
3. Sunflowers. The flower of summer is the sunflower, with its yellow coloring and large face. So be sure to incorporate some of those into your summer bouquets (although they work well on their own as well!).
