The other day I walked into the market
and found a bucket filled with the most amazing
and detailed little pink blooms.
And they talked to me.
'Yes, you DO need to take us home with you.'
Incidentally, flowers say that to me quite often
and in this case, I definitely agreed.
While I love and enjoy fresh flowers any time of year
August and September are definitely times when those fresh flowers
seem to dry out extra fast even with extra water and attention.
So a favorite tip for mantels and flower arrangements for this time of year
is to use something that dries well and keeps looking pretty.
These flowers are called gomphrena and are gorgeous when they are fresh
and equally as gorgeous when they are dried
which makes them a perfect choice
for a long lasting summer to fall styling.
That pop of pink is gorgeous and mixed with just a few glass bottles
a stack of old books
and that gorgeous gold
I am in love.
Simple & sweet and simply perfect.
