Flowers on Friday: A year in Review

Our last day of our Blogaversary Celebrations is Today, It's been fun! We're looking forward to another year of blogging and renovations :)
To cap off our Blogaversary Week, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite Flowers on Friday's from the year:

I Love this little guy in the julep cup beside the powder room sink (If we're having people over I like to keep a little bouquet in the bathroom.

This purple one is probably my favorite:

And Max's too!

And our carnation topiary! To find our how to make them follow the LINK.

  1. Those are lovely. Where did you learn to keep house? Did you Mom teach you? A Grandmother? I am almost twice your age and only started learning this stuff about ten years ago. I had to read about having flowers--and it took a lot more than that to "allow" myself to purchase them more than just once in a while.

    Alexandra Stoddard calls them "Grace Notes" and thinks they are essential--and she's right. I just wonder how you got it figured out already! Kudos.

  2. Very nice! I too like to have fresh flowers and typically pick or buy them for my home once a week. I always add extra flowers when I am expecting guests. It is a nice and welcoming touch. Depending on how far my guests have to travel, I sometimes send some of the flowers home with them.

  3. Fresh flowers are one of those few things I do splurge on when those in our own backyard are not in bloom (our hydrangeas are gorgeous right now). I love that you take larger bouquets and break them up to have throughout your home. I love the carnation topiary! Carnations last for such a long time.

  4. Thanks Ladies :)
    Alana- I'm not sure where I first learned it, definitely not my grandmother haha she hates almost everything domestic. Probably my mom, she Loves all the same things I love! But it mostly came from a quote I read
    "what you do while your procrastinating is probably what you should be doing for a living" And every chance I had a work I would be on Marthastewart.com and all during college I would take breaks to bake or make something. It really is my passion!
    Thanks for the question I never really thought of it before :)
    Lots of Love

  6. I would rather have fresh cut flowers all over my house all the time instead of a diamond necklace. Love your blog. So pretty!

  7. Have you heard this quote?
    "When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other."
    My grandma has that somewhere in her house and I love it!
