Easy room pick-me up

Summer is here!

With the farmer’s markets in full swing, I usually buy flowers on a weekly basis to add life to my living space.  In fact, fresh flowers are an easy room pick-me up,  but they can get expensive.  One way to get a nice look for very little money is to mass a bunch of carnations in a tight dome in a simple vase.  Choose subtle, natural looking colors, such as white, blush or apricot (skip the dyed blossoms – they look artificial in my opinion).

In this case, I purchased yellow carnations from Cub to cut down on costs, and these flowers were on sale.  Score!  Also, I did not create a tight dome because the mouth of the vase I wanted to use was large.  So, I cut the flowers at approximately the same length an arranged them so they were all close together.


Usually, the bunch  of flowers I use in this space have height, but, I still think this works with the yellow flowers and the yellow vase on the higher shelf.  It seems to pull the yellows together.
