|Daisies for the beach cottage|
Liz and I are both huge lovers of daisies. Liz has loved them since she was a little girl; however I was always a HUGE fan of roses. As we age, we naturally change...roses are showy, fragrant, elegant flowers which represented my life as a business woman living in the city.
Daisies are simple, happy flowers which just speak to my heart as a simple beach bum in her mid-forties. Don't get me wrong, I still love roses (and all flowers for that matter)! Daisies also combine lovingly with seashells.
David and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary last weekend and he actually remembered that I love daisies so brought home a simple bouquet of daisies and carnations (another favorite) as a surprise. Not one to just throw flowers into a vase; I separated them into three vases to make more of a display.
|A bit of springtime for our beach cottage's dining table...daisies, crystal, seashells & starfish.|
Old glass candle jars made the perfect beach cottage vases and my favorite cobalt blue vase holds the carnations and clippings of camellia branches from our garden.
|Daisies are such a friendly flower!|
A few of my favorite crystal candle holders reflect the outdoor sun to add glimmer to the dreary winter days.
|Our cobalt blue vase sits in a clear dish filled with seashells...|
|For a charming beach cottage effect...recycle your old jars into vases.|
Of course, we had to have some seashells and a starfish to finish off our springtime table display.
