My Flower Epiphany

Monday, April 29, 2013

Recently I had a little flower epiphany. Hear me out. It’s true that fresh flowers can be expensive and with everything going on in today’s world, people try to save by not treating themselves to life's little pleasures. Flowers are becoming a waste of money for many and even a few of my friends admit that they haven’t bought a bunch of flowers in years since they will die anyway. So recently I realised that flowers are only expensive if you buy a whole bunch. If you just get one piece, you’ll not even feel it as an expense.

So last week, in hopes to make my friends realize that simple pleasures, like flowers are important, I got them each, one peonie and an old wine bottle (from my home). It totally made their day and they are hooked.

So, darlings, since I can’t give you all a flower, how about one day this week, on the way from work, you treat yourself to one of your favourite flowers. Just one! Promise, it will feel amazing :) Ah, the little things in life. What do you say? Do we have a deal? xo

P.S: Oh, don't forget this trick!

I never thought about getting just one flowers before. I like that idea a lot since I'm one of those people who has a very hard time spending on flowers or little treats. But, gosh they make me so happy when I do. Cheers, Grace

Love this idea and the look of a single flower, sometimes even more attention calling than a bouquet!

You are sooooo right! A fresh flower really makes a big impact. And just one dainty one is not expensive at all! I think it's so sweet you gave them to your friends. They are lucky to have you! I need to go fetch me a stem this week after work. :)

such a sweet idea.

i used to really dislike the idea of receiving flowers, never minded giving them, but as i'm older and have my own place...i appreciate the beauty fresh flowers bring to a space. but buying myself a flower or two is seriously a great idea. think i'll do that today!! xoxoxo

Diana, you say it so well! I'm committed now to go and pick a flower when I'm out with my son this week and come back to put it in the Coke glass-turned-bud vase on my bedroom dresser. Thanks for the pick-me-up!

Such a lovely idea - and displaying them in jam jars looks really sweet too!

That is wonderful, Ethaney :)
