A vase of flowers or greens will bring even a dull hotel room to life in the most delightful way. The small amount of trouble or expense involved is honestly repaid in real decorative effect. If you find cut flowers too extravagant, stick to the greens. Laurel, rhododendron leaves, huckleberry or pine will all last many days, even weeks.

-Dorothy Draper

This doesn’t just go for hotel rooms. Go pick a bunch of flowers or cut some branches while you can, or splurge a little bit on some. They’ll be worth the cost and effort in how happy they’ll make you.

    You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to arrange them yourself! Take a class, or just practice with flowers from your garden. It’s an art you will enjoy time and time again!
