Since having kids, flowers being present in my house has always been special. I don’t know why that made a difference, but it just did. Actually, I think it’s because when I became a Mum, I appreciated the small pleasures a lot more! Flowers make the atmosphere of your home so much more homely too!
I used to take the traditional approach when I received a bunch of flowers. This involved nothing more than clipping them a bit, putting them into luke warm water and sitting them in a glass vase on my kitchen table. (I learned how to treat flowers with a bit of respect when I assisted a florist on Sex and The City Movie 2, in New York, back in 2010!)
When these Christmas bunch of flowers from arrived (they are called The Madison
), I loved how individual each flower was and decided to disperse them all over the house. I literally put some in every room! The bunch was impressively big and presenting it in one room would have almost seemed a waste!
Sarah, my photographer and I brainstormed and decided to present them in a few different ways.
Flowers, as a gift are very personal and incredibly special. I remember when I came home from the hospital after having Harper and my mother in law took full advantage of the efficient Bloom & Wild delivery
and got them to the door of my apartment! I was literally shocked. It was the nicest surprise. They were so beautiful. I’ve just got the bunch I received myself, to arrive on her desk at her office for Christmas!
I styled this differently because I wanted to show you how you can take a bunch of flowers and really make them more than…just a bunch! There are some really lovely “outside the box” ideas on Pinterest too, if you’d like to have a look. Simple, easy, creative ways of decorating your home with these beautiful flowers and really, just making the most of them.
I chose these bath salts as an add on and think they are the cutest little touches to make the gift even more special. Wether it be for yourself or a loved one.
It was so lovely to get creative and collaborate with Bloom & Wild, who kindly sponsored this blog post!
