Supermarket blooms

31.8.11

I’ve recently gotten into the habit of enjoying little inexpensive bouquets picked from the grocery store to keep things feeling fresh and alive in the house. It’s proves to be a super duper quick pick-me-up on the less than bright days we’ve had of late thanks to our not-so-good friend Irene.  I snagged these for just $6.99 at the supermarket on an impromptu pre-hurricane milk run  and boy am I happy I did. I have promised myself to continue this new tradition especially into the Fall and Winter months when things can begin to feel a bit stagnant.

They look great on the table  coordinating nicely with those colors I chose for my freshly painted Flower and Paisley paintings. I’m loving the little color that says yes this house is loved and yes I can match colors in my home.

Up close the feathered edges of the flowers are fuzzy and soft adding some great texture and color. Although I’m at a loss for the name of these flowers as I’d love to plant them in the garden some day. Wouldn’t they be just lovely in the garden?

And, instead of opting for a super bright vase that would compete with the flowers I chose a simple glass vase I had lying around. It creates a a nice contrast between the fuzzy texture of the flowers and the smooth texture of the vase.

So there you have my super duper quick way of infusing a little life and color in the home with a $6.99 bouquet I bought on a quick pre-hurricane milk run. Has anyone else picked up some super market flowers lately and have know idea what the flowers are called? Been to the grocery store just as a hurricane was about begin? Or any other quick fixes to brighten a less than sunny day?
