Flowers: A Gathering of Blooms

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).
