Home Economics: A $5 bouquet can brighten your whole day… and house!

imageI love having fresh flowers in my house. Since, I’m pretty frugal, I like to get the most out of the bouquets I buy. I collect small vases and jars and have them on hand for when I purchase or receive a bouquet of flowers. The farmers market is a great source for inexpensive flowers. I bought this bunch of lavender mini roses for $5 at the farmers market near my house.

imageFirst, I gather up the vases and jars I want to use. Empty spice and jam jars are cute and free! I grab my shears and get to work. I try to end up with groupings of three for display purposes.

imageOnce I have the vases filled, I display them up all around my living room. So for $5, I have brightened the whole room!

Homework: What is your favorite type of flower?
