Once the holiday decor comes down, things can look a bit bare.  It’s nice – in a clean, uncluttered way – but also almost lonely. And in the cold, the flowers aren’t exactly blooming to liven things up that way.

Instead, try taking a just a few simple blooms or branches, separating them out, and let the vases be focal point.  I gathered a few tulips in champagne glasses and loved the fresh take.  And then I saw this picture and thought the colored vessel was really what January needs.

My way to do it though utilizes things you may already have on hand … things like colored glasses and barware, votive holders, pitchers, even shot glasses.  Of course vases and bud vases work too, but get creative and mix things up.

Martha Stewart I am not -
I have no intention of
whittling my own table
and can handle a martini
like nobody's business -
but I do have lots of
great ideas on cooking,
entertaining, and living
that I want to share with you.

Together, perhaps we can find
ways to have a bit more fun!
