April Showers...now May flowers (c:

Ah, flowers.

They make a room every time...they can totally take a room from blah to beautiful in one fell swoop...and they can always put a smile on my face (*tap, tap* Hubby, are you listening???)!

You always find the best pics...I love the really oversized arrangements. I need to remember that when making them here. Unless of course people are trying to eat at that table!

Sara Mueller said...

I have been meaning to pick up some up. They brighten up any space.

Natalie said...

Great minds think alike. I have that second picture saved for inspiration for my dining room. Nothing makes me happier than fresh flowers, I hope you get showered with flowers for your birthday!

Amanda Hill said...

You should totally rock one of those numbers for your party! I totally put flowers on my shopping list this morning :)

Flowers definitely add something special to a room. It's always such a treat to have fresh flowers.

Fresh flowers can do more to brighten a space then anything else, gorgeous inspirations! I wish my husband would read this and get the hint ;).

Michaela said...

Ah! I love all these photos. You know me- a total flower girl (: I just adore those pink ones in the middle of the table! And that dining room picture is literally amazing. Going in my inspiration folder!!

Anne said...

I am so excited for our hydrageas to fully bloom! They are close - these pictures reminded me of how fresh flowers can brighten a space!!!

Julip Made said...

Hmmm... maybe I'll forward this post to the Boy as a hint...

I love fresh flowers. They make me happy and optimistic. Unfortunately I do not have them at home all the time so I use very real looking fake flower and depending on the mood and if I have guests coming over I will buy fresh flowers. When I used to live in Seattle I use to buy flower from Pike Place Market. The vendors there have such a beautiful flower for a very reasonable price. I love the flowers in photo #5.

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Yup, I couldn't disagree with you. There's nothing like a flower to put a smile on my face:)

I need more room in my budget for fresh flowers :( These photos are awesome!

Kellie Collis said...

They're gorgeous! I wouldn't be surprised if they take over the room! Have a delightful day, Kellie xx

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I'm so with you. I've had peonies in my apartment and office for a weeks now. They make SUCH a difference! xoxo

Polyvorina said...

lol, I hope the hubby was listening! ;)
Love the dresses at the end of this post.

It's amazing what a big difference fresh flowers bring to a room. My hydrangeas are on their last leg, and I want them to hang around for just a few more days!

natasha {schue love} said...

Flowers totally make a room feel like home...love the pink arrangement that you found on Things that Sparkle...so glamorous!

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

Girl you could definitely rock those dresses to your party!! Flowers just make everything more fresh!!

It's amazing how even the simplest flowers can transform a space, a table setting. If only fresh flowers lasted a lot longer.
