Weekly flowers have become one of my new favorite things (per my “buy more flowers” bullet point on my New Year’s resolution/things to do before I’m 30 list). Tulips are everywhere now, so I’ve been picking them up pretty frequently at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, but I can also usually find small bunches of pretty-colored roses in the three-for-$12 flower bins at Publix, and I love those, too. That said, my flower-arranging skills are basically limited to trimming the flowers’ stems and leaves and shoving everything into a vase, so I loved reading this flower-arranging tutorial on Cup of Jo the other week. Plus, the photos are gorgeous.
Do you love flowers, too, or could you take ’em or leave ’em?
P.S. A story I wrote about parties, with a big emphasis on the impact of flowers.
