Out of the box bouquet

After this morning's man post, I thought we could all use some girly flowers. If you're bored with a space, don't have a lot of money to decorate for a party, or just need a little pick me up, why not throw together an interesting bouquet?
Try to think out of the box and if all else fails, go pick some weeds.

I wish the color of the vase/flower pot was different, but you get the idea.

This glass jar is simple and such a nice complement to the orange/reds in the flowers.

Simple, clean, white. So pretty.

Oh wow, this is what I'm talking about.

A gloomy brown corner is instantly transformed by this bouquet.

There's no need to stop at one bouquet, why not add lots to an open space?

Sometimes a pair of little buds is all you need.

Do you keep bouquets in your space or do you prefer single flowers? I think I'll take whatever I can get.

both at the shop and at home, i have to have flowers around me. even at home if i'm on the end of a run, i'll pick roadside pretty branches, wildflowers & weeds to bring home and plunk in a vase, or glass. at the shop i get a bit more dramatic, larger arrangements, but still look as if they've been picked, nothing formal. love that.

Lucky for me, California has some REALLY pretty weeds! And I will take whatever is available...love flowers!

I LOVE bouquets of flowers. One of my many old odd jobs was a florist so I love putting together unusual flowers and making something pretty. I can't keep ANY plants or flowers in my place though because my cats eat them for dinner and then get sick. Blech.

I'm loving the look of branches in vases right now. I'm lucky to be in the midwest and have lots of access to countryside flowers in ditches which are gorgeous, too!

Such a great way to decorate!

I love flowers at home, but it's impossible to have them because of my cat George. He's fascinated by them and knocks them down or breaks things trying to get to them.

But I love him so it's ok.♥

bah! i could use some glorious buds (HA!) like these! i love the first one more than you can possibly imagine!

the douchebag client that ruined MY ENTIRE MORNING might just earn my forgiveness (emphasis on MIGHT) if he sent me flowers like the ones in pic #1.

The glass jar is SO up my alley...I recently took a "blue italy" seltzer bottle, stripped off the label and used it as a bud vase...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the first one. Great find!

Amy said...

I like cheap flowers - I usually will buy pink or purple carnations and spread them around the house using vintage milk bottles!

Savvy Mode SG said...

oh i love the first one. i adore having flowers at home.

Ginger said...

I like bunches of single varieties, and I love woody blooms, like dogwood, cherry blossom, and quince. You're right, though; I'll take whatever I can get too;)

Hanako66 said...

I love these! I bring in a lot of flowers from the yard...whatever is in bloom!

OceanDreams said...

Usually bouquets but this inspired me to try a single flower! So pretty!

Iva said...

I'm all about that first picture! so pretty. Flowers can totally make a space :)

Southern Aspirations said...

All about the glass jar vase. So homey, yet stylish. And those buds against the brown wall! Love flowers in the home. Add so much.

Haven and Home said...

Love the simple outdoor one!

Kristin said...

The green and red pops perfectly against that brown wall!

Oh I love fresh flowers. Especially now with all the flowers in bloom. A quick little snip, snip outside and I'm in business.

MissBliss said...

That first image is my favorite! Such a fresh take! I like my flowers in the wild fields in undisturbed Colorado!!! The tropical ones here in Miami work, too. Yesterday I was greeted by a lovely pink hibiscus opening!

Blair said...

Fantastic floral inspiration!:)

Gabby said...

I'm like you, I'll take whatever I can get. We have some rose bushes randomly growing outside and just cut them whenever we want...a single flower is just as pretty as a designed arrangement!

nicole addison said...

such beautiful pictures as always! my mom always has fresh flowers in the house, i dont know what i'd do without them :) and thank you for the sweet birthday wish lady, it made my day :)

eco-stylista said...

These look beautiful! I take everything, too, sometimes weeds can look great, too. Because sometimes I am not sure whether something is a flower or a weed :-) The man post was great, too, good idea!

Being Brazen said...

I love bouquests. Especially Star gazers and roses

naphtali said...

Simple is best! Lovely, lovely bouquets

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

love how it adds a pop of color!

I like bouquets of one kind of flower.

Hydrangeas are in season right now. Make friends with somebody who has a bush and get a free bouquet.
