Flower Power

Since Valentines is coming up soon, my radar has been on alert for beautiful flowers.

I recently had so much fun re-arranging some ordinary store-bought bouquets in my home.
Actually, I bought only one, on SALE (you know me) for $8.99 and was able to make 2 arrangements!

Pretty pinks

I really love these colors especially with my blue and white pot

This one sits in our breakfast table
And I put the rest in our Dining room!

Got this small pot for $1.50 at an Antique store!

Still have my red flowers alive & well all the way back from Dec. 23!

I'm up for a VERY busy weekend ahead since my son is gonna be performing in Peter Pan Musical from Friday until Sunday.
He's just part of the Indian Ensemble, but even with that, technical rehearsals are still very taxing and time-consuming. My son is very happy to be part of the group though and is proud of his work, so we're on full support for this important event. Wish us luck!

Anyway, I'm Just loving all these beauties I see everyday that of course, to me, cost almost nothing.

How about you what's your favorite kind of store-bought flowers?

Have a Lovely Weekend!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...


  1. Gorgeous, I love stargazer lilies.

    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Grocery store flowers have come a long wait recently! They look beautiful! So proud of your son. I know that he you all will enjoy his performance!

  3. I love mixed bouquets, like yours. Beautiful and thrifty! Have fun at rehearsals and "break a leg" to your son.

  4. Beautiful! I love having fresh flowers in the house!

  5. Great idea to split the arrangement up like that! More for your money! Good luck this weekend on your son's performance. How exciting! My favorite flowers to buy at the grocery are probably spider mums. I love those!

  6. Wow, you made store bought flowers look chic! I love that! I need to use fresh flowers more. Have a fun week-end!

  7. Very pretty flowers, Vel, I thought they were professionally arranged! Have fun the weekend. I also have performers! Those tech weeks are long and crazy, but it all pays off in the end! :) Enjoy it!

  8. Fresh flowers make me long for spring! My daughter used to be in theater, and I loved every minute of it, enjoy!!

  9. Such gorgeous flowers and beautiful arrangements, I love how they look in your stunning blue and white pieces! Wishing your son the best of luck in his upcoming performance!


  10. Beautiful flowers- love the colors! Have fun with your son's play! We did this with our kids too and it's all gone by too fast. Our daughter went on to doing musicals in High School- lots of fun!

  11. There is nothing better than flowers around the house - makes every room pretty and special, and your bouquet is lovely!

  12. Such exciting news for your son! And I know he'll keep these days as cherished memories all his life. I can't count the time I spent rehearsing as a child and the number of times my parents had to drive me there or pick me up later, but I love remembering those days!

  13. Those are just gorgeous, Vel! I do the same thing -- usually divide up the arrangement into 2. Another trick to make both look more lush is to buy some fill flowers which are generally even cheaper! My favorite flowers to get are the ones that someone else got for! Hubby just did that! I especially love to get flowers from Trader Joe's -- they always seem to be in the best condition and that store just has such great variety. My choices change with the season.

    Good luck to your son in the play!

  14. I am a sucker for tulips and sunflowers. I love grocery store flowers! Inexpensive and as you noted, they bring a smile to my face every day!! Good luck with Peter Pan!!

  15. Hi Vel! Oh,your flowers are so pretty and you've arranged them very well. Love the pretty colors with your blue and whites. I wish your little son the best in his play! Oh, I remember the day. Enjoy your little ones.
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
