More Fresh Flowers ~Our Family Room

More flowers to share today, this time in our family room.


My husband was given arm loads of fresh cut flowers to bring home. Enough to fill 4 or 5 containers so I put them to good use. I shared the arrangements I made for the living room here.


There were so many of the orange and yellow flowers that my galvanized sap bucket is full and the extras went into the living room. I love the sunny pop of colour these carnations, glads and roses add to our neutral family room.

The slipcovers need washed but can wait because I am going to enjoy this last long weekend of summer and then I am back to work on Tuesday. Not looking forward to it, but I am blessed to have a job and especially one that gives me summers off. What are you doing this weekend?

  7. Beautiful flowers Elizabeth the colors are wonderful.

    I love having fresh flowers in the house. That is something I miss when we are at the lake. I haven't found flower deals there as great as Kroger, right here in town. Especially on Thursday after fresh shipments come in and they do markdowns.

    Thanks so much for coming by the Back Porch. Labor day is a long weekend here, as well.
