Last week I threw a small dinner party for some of my girlfriends.  Whenever I entertain I always like to use fresh flowers.  The flower options at the local grocery stores here aren't great but they always have $4 bouquets of this type of flower.  I can't remember what these are called now but I love them.  They come in various colors and have some major staying power.  We even used these in some of our wedding arrangements.  The flowers here are already almost a week old and they are still holding strong. 

I was able to break down the bouquet into 3 small vases.  I always love finding unique vases other than the traditional and expected.  The vases here are actually a jam jar and a spice jar - the glass ones from Whole Foods, they make perfect vases.  Not bad for $4 flowers!  Nothing makes me happier than fresh flowers around the house.
