Less Is More Flower Arranging

June 15, 2012

Have you ever noticed that sometimes less is more?  Like maybe how much jewelry you're wearing.  Or how much make-up/perfume you slather on yourself.  Or how much food you eat.  (I'm so totally not guilty of this one.)  Either way, sometimes the reality is undeniable.  I found that to be true the other day when I brought in some fresh cut wildflowers and placed them in a can.  A simple, empty can.  And that was all I needed to brighten up my house and my day.  No fancy vase.  No incredible arrangement.  Just. A. Can.

I'm not saying that the beauty of the bright, fresh flowers had nothing to do with it.  What I am saying is that paired with a simple vessel, they became even more beautiful.  Elegant, even.

Okay, so I went a bit nuts taking pictures of these flowers.  Bear with me?

Like I said, sometime less is more.  And we can be thankful for that.

Have a great weekend, friends.

First - The flowers are so pretty! Thanks for sharing them with us. I also agree - sometimes less is more, and many times it would be better if some would use that principal when using fragrances.
Have a great weekend !

I read an interesting quote the other day that was along the lines of...jewelry takes peoples' focus off your wrinkles. Those flowers are so pretty that they make the can look beautiful too. :)

Gorgeous! I agree with you that the simple container doesn't detract from the lovely flowers! My mom would stop and dig up the orange Milk Weed, on the side of the road, when we saw it and bring it home to replant! Love your arrangement!
