Add summer with fresh flowers
It may be winter, with the windy snapping at the trees and the cold chill through doors and windows, but that doesn't mean you can't have a beautiful display of fresh, colourful flowers in a home. In fact, there's even more reason to...
With only a month to go before we start heading into spring, add some greenery to your home to lift up your spirits and bring a touch of nature in the home.
During the cold winter months we tend to hibernate - closing doors and windows to keep our homes as cosy as possible. A vase of fresh cut flowers not only adds a splash of colour, it instantly revives and refreshes a room. Take a visit to your local florist and be amazed at the wonderful winter blossoms out on display, or spoil yourself and order up an arrangement just for you!
Recycle empty glass jars into attractive and colourful flower vases.
Old buttons, bracelets, ribbon and other colourful bits and pieces can be used to dress up empty glass jars and add a splash of colour around the home.
If hubby hasn't been pulling his weight lately, it's time he went out and bought you a bunch of flowers - what the heck, ask him to get your two bunches!. Roses in shades of cream and peach will add wonderful warm colour to your living room.
You don't need expensive vases to display freshly picked garden flowers.
Recycle glass bottles and tie them together with a strip or raffia or string for a new approach to displaying flowers in the home.
Thick winter bedding and fleece pyjamas definitely don't set the mood for romance, but add a small bunch of fresh flowers and you're heading in the right direction.
