Just wanted to share a little something that I got from work yesterday. My co-worker gathered a bunch of pink carnations from an event that was going on and surprised me with them during my lunch. It really made my day! Here's what I did with them when I got home.
I immediately took out my acrylic block vase and separated each carnation into it's own little vile. Instead of the dining room table, I selected a spot on the sideboard for a nice change of scenery.
Then, call me fancy-schamcy, but I decided to light the tea lights that already had a home on the sideboard.
The colors were glorious.
Then I took the three remaining stems and gave them a home on the ledge between the kitchen and dining room. The flower bunch came with the most electric green moss I had ever seen. I was so smitten!
All in all, after a very long day at work, this was a very sweet ending. Thanks, Marie!
