Pretty Valentines / by Brooke

Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to decorate the house with beautiful flowers.  And for eating chocolate.  And all other types of candy.  But let's focus on the flowers, ok? Decorating with fresh flowers is one of my favorite things.  I especially love something simple, while being interesting.  I like an alternative to a dozen long-stemmed red roses.

I came across these and absolutely loved them.  Seems like you'd be able to throw some of these together pretty easily.

These I spotted at Target.  Love the colors.

I like using bright vases.  Then, you can keep the flowers very simple.  Like, here.  (Also from Target, though I don't think they are selling the goblets anymore.)

These paper peonies are a fun alternative to fresh cut.  And will certainly last longer.

Mint + hot pink.  How can you go wrong?
