Frugal Friday Linky Party

Wendy at The Shabby Nest is having a Frugal Friday Party! Our chic cheap tip is to use flowers and plants!

Almost every grocery store has a floral section, some even have a reduced section. Even cheaper yet grow your own, or cut your neighors, kidding. In the summer our favorite place to get flowers is at the farmers market. In our town there is a farmer market in the parking lot of Goodwill on certain days. Lucky us.

And vases or planters can be pick up any where. Look for vases with narrow opening, so you only have to use a few blooms to get impact. Almost anything can be a vase or planter, be creative. You can also mix real with faux. I used fake lilacs in the one picture with real potted gerber daisies.
One of our favorite blogs The Pleasure of Homemaking , we love how she uses flowers in home. Check her blog for other gardening ideas.

Have a great weekend!

Great Blog Link and some very well dressed tables :) Also thought I'd let you know (after you were kind enough to run such a fab Blog Candy recently) that I've been inspired to run a blog Candy jewellery and Silver Clay Giveaway too!
Thanks for another inspiring post
