Something I've learned recently: buy cheap flowers. The wildflower & "budget" flower bunches last the longest! Whenever I buy roses or more expensive flowers, they last a few days. But I've had these "cheap" flowers last weeks!
I've been taking advantage of the clearance flowers recently, and for $2.50 I'll buy a bouquet of carnations, daisies, and astromelias. Then when I get home, I'll separate them and throw them in different vases & jars on my window sill above the sink. It really cheers up my kitchen!
These pressed glass cups have the fluer de lis design and are currently on clearance at Pier 1! I picked up a pink one and it looks lovely holding my flowers.
