It’s hard for me to not stop by the flower section while grocery shopping. Flowers inside the home are an easy way to bring freshness into the home while making your home brighter, warmer, and welcoming.
I usually buy one bouquet and separate that bouquet into several mason jars to place throughout the home. From the kitchen counters to end tables to bathrooms, having flowers in the home is an easy way to brighten a day.
What’s my favorite flower? I’m a magnet to white hydrangeas. Their puffy, beautiful faces complement our home decor nicely. Plus, they are incredibly pretty yet simple yet sophisticated yet classy … man, the list can go on and on. I love them so much that we had them as our wedding flower. Yes, I love hydrangeas.
So, that leaves me wondering …
What’s Your Favorite Flower?
Do you love colorful flowers? Neutral flowers? Rustic flowers? Simple flowers? I prefer white, rustic flowers. So, when the store doesn’t have white hydrangeas, I usually opt for white tulips or any other white flower.
P.S. Have you ever bought hydrangeas, placed them in a vase, and then come back a few hours later to see them wilted? Trust me. I’ve been there, freaked out, and tossed the flowers.
After this happened a few times, I discovered a fun, easy tip.
So, the next time you have wilted hydrangeas, follow these steps:
- Remove the hydrangeas from the vase.
- Pour the water out of the vase.
- Boil water.
- Fill the vase with the boiling water.
- Trim the stems.
- Wrap the underside of the bulbs and the leaves with paper towel (to protect from hot water).
- Place the flowers back in the vase with the boiling water.
- Allow to sit in the water for a few hours … and voila! Your flowers will perk right up in a matter of hours.
- Leave the hydrangeas in the water.
- Repeat if necessary.
