{Monday Flowers} Summer Blooms

Happy Monday! Monday’s are hard enough, but in the summer it is that much harder to get the week started. That is why I have made Monday’s my flower day. Picking up fresh blooms on the way home always makes my day a little brighter and helps set the tone for the upcoming week. Here are a few of my summer favorites.

No. 1 {Sunflowers}: A true summer staple that will add sunshine to any room. A few stems will go a long way and while I love a large centerpiece, they are also great in bud vases around the house.

No. 2 {Alstroemerias}: These are low maintenance and when bunched together tightly are a lovely kitchen or living room centerpiece that will last a good two weeks.

No. 3 {Peonies & Poppies}: Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, so when they are in bloom you will always find them in my house. They can be a bit on the expensive side, so picking up just a few for bud vases will help you enjoy them throughout the house. When picking them out, be sure to look for a tightly closed bud. If it is already open, it won’t last very long.

Hope these colorful summer blooms inside you to pick some up on the way home tonight. Would love to hear your summer flower recommendations!
