One thing I love to treat myself & our home to is a bouquet of fresh flowers every week. The colours they bring to the room are so uplifting & they breathe life into our very white house. It's my way of adding pops of colour, here, there & everywhere without it being too permanent. It's always so lovely to walk into a room & be greeted by beautiful blooms along with their fresh fragrance.
Whenever it's time to pick up a bunch of pretties I can always rely on Aldi or Asda to fulfil my floral needs. They both stock such a huge range & I never normally have to part with too many pennies either. Aldi was my absolute hero when Peony Season arrived, it's one of my favourite times of the year & I was able to have Peonies for £3 a bunch so I was a happy girl! Now Peony Season is over, my go to choice of flowers are sweetheart roses or a spray of Gypsophila.
I tend to use old Coffee Jars as vases as they're a decent size to hold a small bouquet in. Otherwise I will use my trusty IKEA ENSIDIG vase which is perfect for housing larger bouquets. In celebration of British Flower Week Four Walls have put together a Pinterest Inspired post with loads of ideas on how to display flowers if you're looking for something a bit different. I love the idea of hollowing out a Pineapple to host a bunch of flowers, so fun!
As well as flowers I'm a big fan of Cacti, wherever you look in my house you'll spot a mini Cactus. I'd love to invest in a huge one eventually, but wow they are crazy prices, my mini trio of IKEA cactuses will do for now!
If I ever fancy a real splurge on flowers then I head straight to Bloom & Wild, a company that deliver fresh flowers straight through your letterbox. It's a really convenient way to purchase flowers from the comfort of your sofa & they usually arrive next day, carefully handpicked & ready to be arranged. I recently attended an Etsy Event that hosted a Bloom & Wild workshop where I was able to put together my own Posy collection. Aptly named 'The Posy Party' the box includes 5 miniature bottles & a selection of wildflowers to be displayed wherever takes your fancy. I ended up with 9 posies as my friends brought theirs back to my house & we ended up placing them below my TV to spruce up the mantelpiece. They would look so pretty on their own though too, dotted around your home to add a little decoration.
If you're looking for more home inspiration have a look at Four Walls, there are some lovely reads on there, I've bookmarked the site for future reference!
