If you see any photos of my home, you’ll notice that flowers often make an appearance. My mom is a retired florist, so flowers have been on my mind for most of my life. On market days, I pick up bunches of flowers that will last throughout the week. Since I don’t have my mom’s skill in floral arranging, I tend to buy flowers of one variety, and each week, no matter the flower, they look beautiful around my home.
If I’m having people over for dinner and lack an arrangement, I grab an odd number of stems from one of my large vases, and I cut them shorter to put into mini vases (I often use the Riviera petits pots). This makes for an easy create-in-one-minute centrepiece.
Another great thing about the single-bloom arrangement is that you can create it with vases/containers you already own, and you can customize it for your favourite colour (for both the flowers and containers).

I feel as though I have been fighting a sickness all week. Maybe when I finally slow down this weekend, it’ll finally take over. Hopefully not!
If you’re like me, when you’re feeling sick, all you want are…
cozy blankets – Doris Leslie Blau
lots of tea – Bea’s Cookbook
an oversize sweater – Damsel in Dior
my bed – as seen in Style at Home
flowers – Erica Cook
Have a great weekend, everyone!
As you know, every Monday in the month of October, #WhiteCabanaWearsPink. These pink posts are meant to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. I’m raising funds in various ways, including donating proceeds from all affiliate links this month to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Get click happy!
Today might be one of the prettiest pink posts I’ve ever drafted. The theme is flowers and bows, and these photos ooze plenty of lovely!

It’s peony season! If you follow designers, bloggers, and floral enthusiasts on Instagram or elsewhere, you’ll likely see a peony-infusion in your feeds. My mom brought me the first two cuttings from her garden over the weekend, and the blooms are just so pretty. I saved my readers from multiple photos this time, but I can’t promise that I’ll be stopping with this one!
The pretty peony has inspired this two-of-a-kind post.

The anemone is one of the prettiest flowers. They haven’t yet made an appearance at the market, but once they do, you know I’ll be picking some up. They’re lovely, don’t you agree?
