When I was in junior high school I babysat for the family across the street. On Saturday mornings, the Mrs. would do her grocery shopping and run errands while her hubby was at work … he was the local undertaker (and yes, we used to wonder what he kept in the locked hallway closet). She would always bring home a fresh, beautiful bouquet of flowers each Saturday and I wondered if she purchased them or if she brought them home from the funeral parlor. At the time, I vowed to be just like her and have fresh flowers in my home on a regular basis when I grew up. I have to say, for the most part I’ve kept that vow and over the years I’ve learned I prefer decorating with pink flowers more than any other color. I thought I’d share some of my favorite pink floral arrangements …
Pink flowers always look good in a blue Ball mason jar. Always.
Simple bottle vases allow the flowers to take center stage.
I love arranging my own flowers, whereas the lady I used to babysit for always brought home professionally arranged bouquets. She also chose flowers in warmer colors like oranges and yellows.
Aren’t they beautiful? They’d look great no matter what they’re in. Love these!
And finally, another trio of roses in vintage bottles, with a bit of pink baker’s twine wrapped around them. I think pink flowers are fun and whimsical … after all, the saying is “tickled pink” and not some other color.
What’s your favorite color flower?
