what do you mean “no money, no problem”???????


you have at least one pretty vase, pitcher, cup or drinking glass, no?

sometimes “vases” from the kitchen make amazing vessels to present greens or flowers!!!!!!!!!!


and then take a little stroll through your yard, neighborhood or park…… i’m sure you can find some leaves, branches or a couple of blooms….. and voilĂ , you have a little floral accent in your house which will brighten your and everybody else’s spirit……

PINK TULIPS on a moody day in LOS ANGELES

Filed under: homes, spring flowers — Tags: , , , , — magdalenasflowers @ 2:40 pm

on a moody day like this, only sweet and playful flowers can cheer me up…….

like these LOCAL TULIPS FROM CALIFORNIA……..

in seasons past, i did not care for tulips all that much……. the imported dutch tulips tend to be weak, sometimes moldy…….
these local beauties though are STRONG and PLAYFUL at the same time……. perfect to play with the other PRETTY THINGS on my mantle……

arranging CHEAP FLOWERS

Filed under: flowers, homes — Tags: , — magdalenasflowers @ 7:20 pm

the other day i had some “left overs” ……. left overs of CHEAP FLOWERS that is…… you might also call them FILLER FLOWERS……
POOR THINGS……. FLOWERS WITH A BAD REPUTATION……
what does luxurious magdalena’s flowers have to do with cheap flowers you might ask……
cheap flowers can be quite CHARMING……. in fact i have made it my mission to bring some of those cheap flowers back, arrange them quite differently and bring them into my own home and those of my esteemed clients…….
the trick is to bunch them very GENEROUSLY…….. like a lot, come on, they are cheap, no need to be stingy…..
the real CHARM OF CHEAP FLOWERS will only be revealed, if they are bunched generously, like 2 to 5 bunches of them……..

look how SWEET they can look, like picked from a WILD FIELD OF FLOWERS…….

DON’T BE SHY……..
