It is not a surprise that once in a while I would indulge in a post solely about flowers. I have always loved flowers, especially because my grandmother grows lots of flowering plants in her home. When I do my weekly groceries shopping at the wet market, I often make sure to buy flowers to brighten up our tiny home. To inspire me, I browse the net, most especially Pinterest, and look through florists’ websites, like BloomNation (a website for florists that offers flower delivery) and magazines.
Last July was my mother-in-law’s birthday and while it is a great idea to give her clothes or jewelry, I know flowers never fail to put a smile on anyone’s lips. So, I decided to make a flower arrangement for her. I bought P300-worth of flowers and used a clear vase I thrifted from a surplus shop several months ago. There were enough flowers for two more flower arrangements, which I placed in our tiny kitchen and work table.
The first arrangement for my MIL. I don’t even know flowers by their name. For as long as they’re beautiful and fits a person, I pick them.
The second arrangement for the kitchen. I used a white ceramic vase that I bought several years ago.
The third arrangement for the work table. These are statice, a bit expensive at P150 per bunch, but they last a long time. In fact, the arrangement of statice I made in July is still on display in our living room..
