INA VASE - valentine's day, sorta

My husband and I do not celebrate Valentine's Day.
It is not that we take an anti-commercial stance but rather we feel it is more romantic to celebrate February 12th, the evening we met across a crowded dance floor, 15 years ago last week at a Valentine's Day party.

A single additional flower is all it can take to make a 'bunch of flowers' into an 'arrangement'; in this case I added a single lily.  A different colour would have been nice but sometimes you just have to roll with what you find at your local florist.

One week in and some of the lilies are just opening - what great staying power!


In the dining room I added the remaining yellow lilies into the 'winter vase' left over from our Winter Party.

(I may leave the greenery and baby's breath in place and just update the other flowers for the remainder of the winter!)

  2. It's surprising what a difference the single lily made to the first vase

    1. It is isn't it? Just a touch and it is no longer just a bunch of flowers.
