Flowers in the House

Hey blog friends.
It's Monday, and you know what that means?
Nope. Not a weekend recap.
Something different this week.
I love having fresh flowers in our house, and it's one of my regular splurges at the grocery store. I almost always keep it simple ~ with hardy flowers like daisies and carnations, quickly arranged in a basic mason jar.


These flowers were on our table this weekend, and they were a great little backdrop for the blood orange margaritas we shared with friends on Saturday. {More on the 'ritas later this week...}


So, how about you? Are Flowers in the House a happy habit for you?


There's this blog I follow called "Small But Charming" {beautiful photos, fun writing style, cute kittens...} and once a month she has a link up party called "Flowers in the House." I'm so excited that I caught her post this time around so I could join in the fun. You can follow this link to see more flowers on this Monday morning.

Have a great week, everyone!

I love to have flowers in the house, but rarely actually make the splurge.

Ruth said...

I'm a irregular flower buyer, but since putting the house on the market, I've spent £10 on them ...

Beautiful colors. so needed in February.

So glad you joined in and invited us over.

And that is the nicest description of the blog I have heard.

You've made my morning.

Orange is so cheerful!

I don't buy flowers regularly but do like them when I have them. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at throwing them out once they're past their best and dead flowers aren't a pretty look!

I love flowers in the house....in the summer they often come from the garden....but this time of year from the supermarket.....our local Tesco often has flowers on their 'sell by date' priced really cheaply....so it isn't too much of a splurge....and they usually still last about 2 weeks indoors.

Hello! Thank you for coming over to my blog - and welcome to the circle of Small But Charming fans!

I love flowers; I cannot imagine a home without even the simplest sprig of greenery in the dead of winter, and Spring is the loveliest time of all for choice.

I'll be back for a good read soon!

I love flowers in the house!

Stunning colors! How lovely!

I love having flowers in the house. It's daffodils at this time of year - nice to have some colour around. I see some alstromeria in there, one of my favourites along with gerberas.
Loving the sound of blood orange margaritas!

I made a deal with myself that whenever I knew my counter was free of clutter and I went to the grocery store, I would buy flowers for my counter. Such an easy, cheap way to make me feel happy (and keep my counter clean).

I love fresh flowers, but rarely buy them here....They don't sell them in the supermarkets, and I never think about going to the Florist's...these are gorgeous!

Gorgeous colours - so cheerful! I have flowers in the house ALWAYS!! From the garden mostly in the summer, but otherwise I buy them. I just love flowers! Have a good week! x

Alicia said...

red and orange mix is a favourite of mine!
I have an only child too, she is nine years old (ten soon) but she likes the Gilmore Girls too :)

webb said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog this time, and for sharing your flowers in the house. I would not ever have thought of those colors - but they are great! So happy.

How come you didn't share the matching margaritas?

Amanda (Small Acorns) said...

I love flowers in the house - Jane's link up of course, but also, always for myself at home. Nothing fancy, but a few blooms always makes all the difference. I can totally relate to your mason jar - old bottles and jars are my favourite type of vase too!

Karen said...

I too have flowers in my house at the moment - orange roses and carnations as a well done treat to myself for doing some housework!

What a wonderfully vibrant and cheerful vase of flowers, beautifully photographed.

Amelia said...

Those margaritas have the most beautiful orange. And congratulations on picking carnations, they are so maligned but ae so pretty. Thanks for stopping by...and I'm glad I made you smile.

Jo said...

Those flowers are gorgeous, I love the colours.

Bow Street Flowers said...

It's so cold here, those hot colors are a balm! Thanks for warming me up! And thanks for visiting my blog!

tainted with a positive view said...

The flowers are beautiful, of course, but I want to see the blood orange margaritas!

Maria Ontiveros said...

What a great link-up! Definitely a pick-me-up! Paul has always been good about bringing me flowers. Now that he's less house-bound, maybe he will get back in the habit.
I want to pick flowers from our yard more often in the future.

Heather said...

Gorgeous color combination and I am sure the margaritas were beautiful with the flowers!

Amy said...

I often buy flowers too - but I mostly go for white ones, roses or lisianthus are my favourites.

Heiress Emma said...

Before I was a florist, I used to consider buying flowers for the house a real splurge. I like your daisies, not a common cut flower here in Australia!

Karen said...

These are gorgeous, and yes, flowers are a must especially in the winter. I haven't seen any this bright and cheerful though!

paisleysummer said...

I love this colour combination. Very punchy!

So pretty!
I did a couple of weeks ago, buy some at Kroger and they dried so pretty, that I still have them.
I heard once that you should never put roses near anything citrus...it turns them brown quickly.

Gail said...

I love fresh flowers in the house but somehow very rarely seem to stop to get some. Perhaps today although who knows what's left after yesterday. :)
