Thrifty tips: Chrysanthemum Flowers revived

A New Year resolution I’m actually sticking to, buying myself flowers all part of my “make me happy” campaign. Each week I select a different type depending on my fancy. The whole thing has become a bit of a weekly tradition, cementing the end to what usually is a busy and stressful work week.

From Borough Market to my local Waitrose, where I buy my flowers varies depending upon my mood and weekend activities, the one thing that is consistent is the feeling I experience staring at a new fresh bouquet in my kitchen.

Over a week ago I bought a delightful bunch of  dusty pink Chrysanthemum’s, relatively cheap and just happen to catch my eye among the sea of petals that particular Saturday.

 

Its been over a week since I bought them and I noticed they were looking a bit sad, a little attention was needed to revive my wilting bunch.

I trimmed away the wilted leaves and cut down the stems

Jar as Vase

 

Jar storage seems to be having a moment of late and can be used as a vase or even drinking glasses. I simple washed out a Homepride pasta sauce jar and removed the label.

Happy kitchen, Happy me, Happy Sunday
