I am a big fan of simple vases. I got several large plain glass columns at the dollar store and they work well at putting all of the attention on the flowers.

I love all one color! Mimi, you are the best!


I'm new here. I love these tips. Flowers really are so beautiful in a room. I don't know why I've never really had flowers in the house too often. I'm going to try to make more of an effort and I'll definitely be referring back to you for ideas. Thanks!


I'm with you. Give me a bunch of the same colored flower all of one type and I am happy! Always great to hear from you!


The dollar stores are so wonderful for coming up with budget friendly alternatives for home decor. If you train your eye to notice good design, you can pick up inexpensive pieces and make them into a great look.

Great tips here...love the idea of shorter stems, lusher looking arrangements that last longer! Make those flower $$ work!
