Just A Little Flower Tip…

Hey, friends.  How’s your week going so far?  It appears that I have come down with some kind of bug!  I’m hoping it doesn’t last long.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I wanted to share a little tip for “flower arranging” — and I use that term loosely because I am no expert arranger.  😉 (You all can go follow my amazing cousin, Haleigh, for that!).  But there’s a tried and true vessel that I use for my weekly Trader Joe’s blooms that I wanted to share.

Meet the new and improved vase — the apothecary jar!

You can find these pretty much anywhere.  I purchased the one on the left at HomeGoods a long time ago and the one on the right from a thrift store.  I just take the lids off and snip the flowers to my desired length, then plop ’em in.

I think these work so well because the vessels themselves usually have some height due to the decorative bases, and the neck typically is a little more constricting than the bulk of it so there’s room for the flowers to kind of set in and flute out naturally.  They are also really inexpensive.

As for keeping my flowers fresh, I change the water about mid-week, and add a hefty handful of ice cubes each morning when I’m going around the house picking up a bit.  I especially love tulips because they grow while they are in the water!  They’re so lively and vibrant — they make me so happy.  🙂

What are your tried and true flower tips / tricks?
