Accessorizing with Summer Blooms

It's "officially" summer and to me, that means spending lots of time outdoors in the warm sunshine, along with filling my apartment with vases of fresh flowers. I believe having a vessel of your favorite blooms on your dresser or kitchen table can add a touch of joy to your everyday life. As you'll see in these photos, you can use just about anything to display flowers - mason jars, teacups, pitchers, etc. A fun challenge for you this week: pick up fresh flowers from a farmers market or flower stand, or even your own garden (if you're so lucky to have one!), and arrange them in your favorite vessel. Maybe it's a teapot or vintage tea tin...whatever you choose, be creative. And feel free to send me a photo so I can share it in a future post on Belle Maison! Have a fabulous day :)
