How to arrange supermarket flowers.

February 27, 2013
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.Β

    I am a big fan of flowers…and yet I always forget to buy them. I need to start buying little bunches when I’m the store. xoxo

      They really make such a difference in my mood! The three-for-$12 bins at my supermarket are seriously my new best friends. xoxo

    Flowers are just one of many reasons I’m excited for spring and summer. While most of the flowers in my garden are wild flowers for the benefit of butterflies, there are a couple kinds that make good cut flowers. I love getting them fresh from the garden and putting them on the dining room table. Ahhh, if only spring and summer didn’t feel so far away still…

      Ah, I love that you have a garden full of wild flowers! That sounds so lovely. A yard (with room for a flower garden) is definitely on my wishlist for my next place. πŸ™‚

    I should probably get more flowers on a regular basis. It might just brighten my day and my kitchen.
