Earth laughs in flowers. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Everyone will tell you that the #1 easiest way to spruce up your home for company (or just yourself!) is to set out fresh flowers! I'm going to tell you how to maximize the impact... either choose flowers all the same color or all the same type - or for a bolder statement, choose both. Another key is to use a few large, bold flowers such as 3 Gerbera Daisies in individual stem vases or a whole bunch of small, dense flowers such as a bucket-full of Aster Flowers. My absolute favorite flower is the Tulip for its graphic shape and intense color.
