We are currently styling the hip + urban girl's crib with fresh flowers as we get ready to sell our house. Here's what we came up with using a mix of what's in-season and bold colours to add some drama to our humble abode. If you are looking for a great selection of cheap, fresh flowers - we highly recommend the flower markets at Avenue Rd. and Davenport Rd. in Toronto. The prices are very competitive and you can choose a pre-made bouquet like the one on the right, or design your own.
We scored this sweet mix (above) for only $14, which added a little sunshine to the sort-of gloomy Fall weather. Pick out a few of your favourite blooms and the staff can arrange it for you. So all you have to do when you get home, is fill a vase with warm water, snip the bottoms and voila! Fresh flowers for a week. Want something a little long-term? Each shop also offers a selection of house plants and orchids.
A mix of oranges and peaches in a shiny silver mint julep cup
Green and purples with lots of texture and personality in a round, low bowl vase
Full two-toned orange roses in a clear glass pitcher gives our entryway some style. All these roses? $12! A steal for us.
