Orchid love....let me count the ways!

Good morning everyone!! Busy busy week this week.....ever feel like there are simply not enough hours in the day? That's how I am feeling this week! But things continue to get done. Still lots of odds and ends being tied up here but we are moving in the right direction. Will hopefully do a mini update post on the house in a few days, and of course very busy with the new online store. Have lots of orders to process and sort, there is a learning curve but I catch on quick:)

One of my absolute most favorite flowers is the beautiful orchid. So elegant and regal, it is one  of the few that as a lone flower, can stand up against the best of them. I have always loved orchids, and try to have one or two in my home at all times. They just make me feel happy and pampered, as most flowers do. I cannot think of a single flower or plant that can transform a coffee table, console, kitchen or any room for that matter like an orchid can.
It just adds instant elegance,refinement, sophistication and beauty and always works in giving that extra height to a vignette where differing heights of objects makes all the difference. So today is a tribute to the beautiful orchid plant, and clearly it works in virtually any room, any setting, any color any style! What do you think? Where and how do you like to use orchids?  Are you as crazy for orchids as I am? I most definitely have orchiditis..........

So what do you think? Do you have a case of orchiditis like me? Its an affliction I am afraid there is absolutely no cure for! Love them...and good news is that they have honestly become more affordable than ever. We have a few florists locally that carry really exquisite large ones that seem to outlast all the others but even Home Depot gets them for 19.99 and though they may not last as long, its a beautiful effect for a month or two....just get a little creative with your containers, and voila, you have yourself an instant pop of elegance to add to any room in your home! Wishing you a fabulous Friday.
