Chasing the Winter Blues with Grocery Store Flowers

I will be the first to admit that I am a warm weather girl. I enjoy puttering around outdoors but I don’t enjoy bundling up so I spend most of the winter inside. I can’t think of anything that gives me a little lift quicker than fresh flowers. A simple inexpensive bouquet from the grocery store can do the trick.


I chose this bouquet because the colors go well with our snowman mugs that I keep out for the month of January.


I chose the ribbons from my collection and added a bow.


I used this miniature pitcher for a vase. The top of the pitcher is just the right size to firmly hold the stems in place. I cut the stems so that the flowers would stand upright without being floppy.


I need warm weather to be productive. I haven’t made any progress on my list of projects but I do have high hopes!
