Today’s post is simple. You help me decide which flower arrangement you like best.
Over the last few weeks, I have had googobs of different flowers pass through my house. I, being the design geek I am, have had so much fun placing pretty floral arrangements here and there throughout my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills. Who doesn’t love a pretty flower arrangement? Clearly I do. I have rearranged my coffee table settings to accommodate the arrangements (click here to see our video ). I have gotten rid of some side tables by my bed so my white roses would look even better (check out COCOCOZY Instagram to see old wood side tables and the replacement vintage glass side table that looks sooooo much better). I have sniffed the flowers, I have Snapchatted the flowers, I have gazed at the flowers. It is simple…a beautiful flower arrangement or even just grocery store bought flowers make me happy.
I am a fan of flowers that are not too fragrant. I tend to go for white and green arrangements. From time to time I like a deep purple flower in the house or orange flowers for outdoors. Here are my top four types of flowers in case you were wondering:
COCO’s Top 4 Flowers
- White Daisies – Bright cheerful happy unpretentious
- White Phalaenopsis Orchids – Love a the elegance of long potted orchid. I usually have a few around the house. They last so long. It is nice to come home to flowers in the house every night.
- Hydrangea – These remind me of my visits to Nantucket. I will take Hydrangea in any color. The pom poms of flowers are just wonderfully pretty.
- Roses – Would pretty much take roses in any color. Might be considered cliche by some but to me they are just pretty. My grandmother grew roses and they always remind me of her.
I stopped here at 4 because these are my favorite. I know every blogger, designer, aristocrat, style maven and my dear best friend AM all would put Peonies on their list. Look…if someone wants to give me Peonies…I would certainly lovingly accept them and welcome them…but, honestly, I was at the flower mart the other day, where Peonies were available and I decided to pass on them. I like Peonies and will buy them from time to time but I am not on the Peony bandwagon. Does that mean I have bad taste? Well if I do, so be it. Hand me a bunch of cheap cheerful Daises any day and I would be just as happy. Just to note – best of friend is not on Peony bandwagon…she grew up with peonies in her mother’s garden AND about 9 years ago her wedding to her sweet husband JE was filled with Peonies wall to wall that she had flown into New York during the month of February! AM is a Peony trailblazer. 😉
Wanted to give you peek of my living room and the different flower options. Let me know which you like best. You will notice the pillows on the sofa….most of them except the coral ones our my own designs and available in our COCOCOZY Shop.
WHITE HYDRANGEA – I bought these at the grocery store, cut them and threw them into a glass vase shaped like an urn. Simple, easy, pretty, no fuss.
WHITE ROSES – This little arrangement cost me $45 dollars and was for beside my bed. I liked it so much I used it in the living room.
YELLOW ROSES – These yellow beauties came from my favorite florist in town. They were given to me as a gift. Yellow is not my first flower color choice but I was so surprised how happy these yellow lovelies made me. Will have to rethink my white flower rule and try for some unexpected color from time to time.
Which flower arrangement do you like the best? Would love to know!
