While walking home from work the other day I saw a big beautiful bouquet of mixed flowers at a fruit market for only $7.99 and i just couldn’t resist bringing them home to make a couple little arrangements.
I’ve really been loving these turquoise mercury glass containers that I bought on clearance at Pottery Barn so I decided to use a couple of them.
To make it easier to arrange the flowers, I made a grid over the top using clear scotch tape. Then it was just a matter of arranging the flowers in the containers and filling them up with water.
They are add a nice little punch of colour in the living room, and I love how the containers play off of the new turquoise and neutral striped cover I put on the couch for summer. I picked it up on sale from Tonic Living, a Toronto-based company that makes retro-inspired fabrics, covers and pillows.
And that lovely little glass lotus votive holder on the table? A beautiful birthday gift from my sister that she picked up at a store in Kingston. Its one of those pieces that I just know I’ll love for years to come.
