Spring in a Tin – Friday Flowers

Vases can be anything in your home from jugs to tea cups (see last weeks post). Here I’ve used a set of cute storage tins that I bought years ago from Cath Kidston. To be safe, I did put a small glass in each tin to ensure no leakages. I love how the colourful blooms brighten up my dresser and puts a fresh spin on this hard-working furniture piece of mine.

Preview M&S Spring Flowers

Whenever I need to buy flowers in hurry, I dash down to my nearest M&S as I pretty much know what I can get, good quality fresh seasonal flowers. They also have the odd exotic mix like their popular Fynbos bouquet and then their Autograph roses are just gorgeous and great value. The latest spring flower selection is huge and will include a favourite for everyone, narcissi, daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, all available en-mass. Below are a selection, seen at their press show a few weeks ago, of what we can expect this spring and summer, some are already available online and in store.
