In the new year I have every intention of bringing home flowers each week to brighten up our apartment. And, when possible, I will share them with you all over morning coffee.
I have a set weekly budget and a few small vases. And, mind you, I am no floral stylist. Get a look at the BIG PICTURES and a description after the jump...
This past week already put my resolution to the test, leaving me with no time to even think about flowers. But at the last minute I stopped in at the deli by the subway and noticed some very nice roses. After getting home I decided to cut off the stems and place them in a shallow bowl (a technique with endless possibilities) for a quick centerpiece for dinner. It was more an admission of my own lack of flower arranging skills and patience, but the arrangement ended up looking quite nice on our table.
Coming home to flowers is a great sensation.
