my favorite decorations

02 May 2016

It might be one of the oldest kid clich├ęs in the book but I still LOVE when the kids pick weeds and flowers and scurry over to deliver them into my happy hands with looks of great pride and accomplishment. Even when I was battling those pesky seasonal allergies it was impossible not to turn down yet another dandelion from the driveway. And it might be silly to admit but I also really love when Simon gets me flowers. Back when we were dating long distance he surprised me for Valentine's Day by flying out to visit and showed at my door with a big bouquet of flowers and I'll just never forget how shocked and elated I was. Now, every time he brings me flowers I'm reminded of that visit and can't help but take a tiny trip down nostalgia lane until the kids snap me back into our less quiet reality.

Theo is actually quite skilled at hunting, gathering, and arranging QUITE the bouquet from the wild that is our yard.

bad joke.  this is actually the Showstopper bouquet delivered fresh from The Bouqs Company, (kind post sponsor!!) my go-to flower delivery service for several reasons.

 this is just one HALF of the Cloud Nine bouquet (and here's a similar bouquet).

The Bouqs Company doesn't scrimp on quantity or quality.

I love breaking the bouquets up and decorating the house to brighten different rooms up ...

my very favorite corner of the kitchen

the boys favorite spot to camp out of late. I don't necessarily share that sentiment but YOLO for now.

 + The Bouqs Company flowers are actually grown on the side of an active volcano in Ecuador so lots of sunshine and mineral rich soil make for the best flowers!

+ Flowers are always shipped directly from the farms to your door - no waiting in warehouses so the quality is always outstanding

+ what you see is what you get when it comes to the price - no hidden charges or upsells and delivery is ALWAYS free!

+ if you're more of a visual learner (raises hand) here's a quick video explaining why The Bouqs Company is the best and most cost effective way to send the freshest flowers to loved ones for any occasion (and Mother's Day is just around the bend!!!)

I love the Showstopper bouquet because it's so unique and features two succulents but there are loads of other bouquets that should strike your fancy too ...

It livened up the dining room quite a bit ...

even in the throes of laundry folding day which tends to be juuuuuust about every day of the week. I'm sure no one can relate ;)

If you're in the market for a Mother's Day (or other!) bouquet you're in luck because The Bouqs Company is offering 15% off your order with the code MDAY15 for the next week. So get ordering and day-making for your mom :)

Happy Monday!


  1. The last picture is my favourite one.

  2. I was thinking, oh I love pretty....I can't wait to get into our new house and put flowers around. Then that last picture hit home. Ha!

  3. Theo with the flowers in the first picture. He's such a cutie.

  4. I can't really see the advantage of these bouquets over those I pick up at the supermarket. ???

    1. haha - understandable!! these are much higher quality than supermarket flowers and like I mentioned - you can send them for free :)

  5. Grace, do you know why I keep coming back to your Blog? Because you are real! Love the dinning room table shot. Hysterical. Dining room tables are overrated. Thanks for being real.
