Carnations are a great economical way to bring in a little pop of color.

Need an instant pick me up in your home?  Try fresh flowers.  I would love to be a floral artist but I fail miserably.  Partly because of the artistry of it and partly because I can't afford a whole bunch of expense stems.  But I have found a solution.  I often buy a few flowers from the grocery store or Wal-mart and I cut them down in multiple small bouquets.  Add a little greenery cut from one of my boxwoods outside and it's a perfect little pop of color.  The other day I had a a few houses to stage so I made a trip to the floral wholesaler.  I'm lucky enough to be able to purchase there through Noble Designs and I had a ball.  So here are a few of my snapshots along with some inspiration bouquets.

It's unfortunate I don't know more about flowers.
