Nature Inspired Flower Vases

After a week of the flu, and being quarantined in my apartment, I needed to bring the outdoors inside. My mom also taught me that a home has to have something living in it (meaning flowers or a plant). Well if I wasn’t feeling quite alive, I needed some brightly colored flowers to brighten up my days.

In an unusual moment of creativity, I decided to line the base of my vases with barley and dried white beans. They looked absolutely beautiful! A great combination of elegance, rustic, and plain old fun!

    Those flowers are beautiful! What are they? And why the beans?

    The pink and orange short vase is filled with simple carnations. They happened to be on sale. Not sure what the other ones were.

    And honestly, I chose barley and beans just because I was looking for something to fill the vase in with. I didn’t have little rocks or beads, so pantry items were a natural and cheap fix.
