When it comes to home decor, is there anything more lovely than a bouquet of fresh flowers in the room? And what could be sweeter than an easy tulip arrangement that spills over the sides of its container? As luck would have it, I recently spied several bunches of tulips in the store that were calling my name. I don’t recall ever seeing tulips for sale this early in the winter and had to have them.
My love of flowers is credited to 3 people in my youth … my grandmother who grew fabulous mums and roses, my mother who always filled her garden spaces with floral color, and Mrs. W across the street who had me babysit her 3 children on Saturday mornings.
Mrs. W also happened to be the local funeral director’s wife so I figured she knew a thing or two about flower arrangements. Every Saturday she brought home a bouquet of fresh flowers and placed them on her dining table.
Besides … tulips aren’t that expensive and they’re oh so pretty!
Might as well let some tulips spill out onto the rest of the table!
Of course, these were added to a white ironstone pitcher after the photos were taken.
And since today is New Year’s Day, I’ll be watching the Rose Parade.
My grandmother and I used to watch it whenever I was at her house on January 1st.
Wishing You and Yours a Happy and Safe New Year!!
