Why I love fresh flowers

I know it’s simple and almost cliche, but adding freshly cut flowers inside your home is one of the best ways to brighten up a space.  

I’m 100% and unequivocally on TEAM FRESH FLOWERS. I love everything about them… the smell, the rhythm of arranging them into a vase, the joy of seeing them each time I walk by, and the utter joy and the feeling of luxury they give me.

One of the best gifts I’ve ever received was from a good friend that sent me a package of 50 fresh peonies… yes 50!!! When the 5 bouquets arrived at the door I couldn’t believe it. Now 50 peonies might feel excessive to some, but for me, it was one of the greatest gifts I had ever received. It made me feel loved and seen. You better believe I soaked up every single second of those absolutely gorgeous blooms. 

Where to Buy Flowers:

Ever since we moved, I’ve had a hard time finding a local florist. Luckily, I did discover the most AMAZING online shop.

It’s called Farmgirl Flowers and they NEVER disappoint! Farmgirl Flowers is a large-scale, female-founded, and predominantly female-run e-commerce flower company. Their handpicked bouquets are gorgeous and arrive beautifully packaged.

My all-time favorite flower: Peonies


Oh, peonies! You have my heart. Your giant fluffy blooms are always a show-stopper and the ones from Farmgirl are out of this world. Ever since last spring, I’ve been counting down the months until it was peony season again… and it’s finally here!!!

They are only available in the late spring/early summer so I try to snatch them up while I can. Perhaps someday, I’ll plant my own peony bush…. I’m not much of a gardener, but it would be worth it for this beauties.

Whether you are ordering flowers online, picking up a bouquet at your local grocery store, or cutting blooms from your backyard, remember to bring the beauty of spring into YOUR house.
