Flower Multiplication

Flower Multiplication

I’m a self-professed flower whore…love and spend too much money on them.
But, if I didn’t, my house would seem a shell of itself…truly.
Luckily, thanks to yesterday’s anniversary and the love muffin, my house’s floral quotient just got a large boost.
This arrived in the a.m…
…pretty, though to be honest, I’m not a large bouquet kind of girl…I much prefer smaller little posies sprinkled all over – more bang for your buck sort of thing…plus in giant bunches, I just don’t think you really appreciate the beauty of each bloom so…I like to leave them whole for about a day…that way hubster can enjoy his donation to the love fund…for some reason, he’s not so found of my flower break up routine…men….anyhoo…I woke up this morning and did the great flower distribution.
In the end, that bunch gave me…

…8 arrangements, a small pile of leftover greens and a new vase…
…not too shabby.
So how about you?
Are you a bigger is better kind of gal/gent or do you prefer to spread the wealth?

    gorgeous! and a great idea! i usually leave the bouquet as is until it starts wilting – i like a big, thick bouquet. but once a few stems start to go, i’ll split up the remaining healthy ones into bud vases.

    definitely inspired to go out and buy some flowers! I really like the idea of splitting them up. I think you enjoy them more.

    I love both. Small bouquet on the nightstand and gigantic lilies on the dressoir. Flowers are a must though! Thanks for sharing!

    Always prefer bunches of a single bloom. That bouquet is just the gift that keeps on giving.

    Oh, yeah, I do the same thing, for sure! At least the last time my husband was on board…when he got home and saw them, he said, “oh, that’s a grandma bouquet, huh?” Precisely why I separate and can have flowers in every room!

    I love that hydrangea poof on bebe.

    Beautiful! love how you separated them out (hubster should be happy at how many MORE flowers it seems after you spread the wealth around the house!) It was a beautiful bouquet he got you to start.

    I can barely remember the last time I got an actual bouquet of flowers, LOL. BUT I love having flowers around. I usually to got to the flower shop and buy big bunches of different ones and scatter in different vases like you do – usually the same flower type in each vase but sometimes I’ll throw a couple of different types in for a change.

    I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?

    Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.
