I love Fresh Flowers all over the House---they give a really cheerful feeling and add colour to the ambience.To keep these from wilting and losing their freshness, add 0.5 tsp.of Sugar to the Water in the Flower Pot before arranging the Flowers in it.The Flowers will stay fresh for a longer period than otherwise.

When you have fresh cut flowers about the house, you want to keep them as long as possible. I find using lemonade, Sparkling water, or soda -even cola- keeps them going longer. Try an asprin in the water as an alternative. No, not for you! for the flowers! It really works !125
We have a halltree that houses coats,mail,etc. and can get overloaded regularly.However,when I bring FRESH cut flowers in a vase,I enjoy displaying them on the halltree [it has a ledge,too!] and so , I clear EVERYTHING OFF in record speed!!! Bringing in THOSE FLOWERS gives me enough MOTIVATION to clean/clear everything out and then I have an ORGANIZED,LOVELY picture of real flowers to look at ~and THAT is SO RELAXING! And seeing THAT ORGANIZED, will inspire me to do OTHER ROOMS!
