We are in Texas this weekend visiting our youngest daughter while the oldest takes care of our children of the furry kind! I felt just a little bit guilty leaving with a house full of abundant floral arrangements, but before heading out I shot a few photos to share some tips today that I think you’ll enjoy…
Look for multiples or sets when you are shopping the flea markets or your favorite on-line retailers. This set of creamware pitchers is something that will go with any decorating style and although not intended originally for flowers…why not? Just go out and clip some wildflowers if you can and arrange loosely.
These ‘clipped from the garden flowers’ have major impact when displayed in multiples that are part of my vintage trophy cup collection. My living room has more of an upscale French farmhouse look (way before Fixer-Upper & Shiplap;-), and I love the juxtaposition of elegant and rustic pieces to make things not too serious in style. It’s not as easy to find the old trophy cups these days but there are some reproduction sets on the market like THIS SET and I’ve seen them in person…nice. Here’s another large reproduction trophy for display and it’s on sale right now. In our home I do mix the old with the new and it’s pretty seamless.
I’m going to miss my flowers at home, but it will be great to take a quick and much needed break. Before I go I’d like to wish you a very happy Mother’s Day and hope that you get to spend the day doing something special, even if it means just pampering yourself and hanging out at home!

A lovely reshare, thank you. I do enjoy seeing how you arrange flowers, Janet! Learn something new everytime.
