Now that the wildflowers are long gone, I miss having bright pops of color all over the house. Luckily, our local grocery store sells pretty bouquets for less than $5 so every once in a while I'll indulge.
I always end up choosing either white or green mums. I guess I just like the simplicity! I love to pull out my milk glass collection and put a stem in each vase. This way I can have flowers in multiple vases rather than just putting the whole bouquet in one big vase. One of my favorite places for fresh flowers is in the bathroom. It just brightens up the space and makes it feel instantly fresh and pulled together.

I also love to put flowers in the living room so I can see them all the time. We use an antique wooden chest I scored from my grandma as our coffee table.
Of course once I put the flowers out the cats aren't too far behind.
Thankfully, they aren't too bad once they get a couple sniffs. They will pretty much leave them alone after the initial excitement of having something new to smell. I feel very lucky because Jasper used to be horrible and always knock flowers over and eat them. I guess he's settled down a bit in his old age!
Do you like to keep fresh flowers in the house?
