How to create a lovely farmhouse flower arrangement with inexpensive flowers from the grocery store!

There isn’t a Mama out there that doesn’t have a to-do list that’s a mile long. I swear, more often than not, my own list of things that need to be done seems to be longer than the hours in each day.

Between all the cooking + cleaning, the ever-growing mountains of laundry, the lunches to pack and dinners to make, the piano practice, the chores, the reno projects and of course all the things we’d rather be doing, there’s just never enough time in the day to get to it all.

But honestly, I don’t really mind any of that.

I actually kind of enjoy the calm and quiet of tidying the house. I love spending my mornings baking up yummy treats for my family and always enjoy an afternoon cooking up a big old meal for my boys. I look forward to sharing the piano bench with my little guy as he practices his favourite songs after school.

Most days I relish in the challenge to see just how much I can accomplish in those six short hours that I’ve got the house all to myself.

The truth is, it’s these boring, everyday tasks of taking care of my family and our home that I’ve always dreamed about – and most days I find myself feeling lucky to do it.

But, of all the mundane chores that make up my to-do list each day, there is one chore that I always seems to dread.

You might think it’s scrubbing toilets or folding laundry (which seem to be some of the least favourite tasks among my friends), but for me, it’s always been my weekly trip to the grocery store that I dread.

Honestly, I don’t know why I hate it as much as I do. Our local grocery store is quite lovely, the staff always friendly, the selection pretty good (especially for a small town). I can’t explain it, I just know it’s the one chore that that tends to hang over my head each week.

Obviously, replenishing our fridge with food each week is a necessary task and so I begrudgingly force myself to push that cart up and down every isle looking for the best nourishment for my family.

And then, I almost always reward myself with a lovely bunch of flowers for all my hard work.

I’ll tell ya, unpacking all those groceries is just so much easier when I’ve got some beautiful fresh flowers to look forward to at the end of it all.

Sometimes I simply plunk them all into a plain old vase and call it done.


And sometimes I put a bit more effort into creating a pretty little farmhouse flower arrangement.

No matter what though, it’s always such a simple and inexpensive way to bring a touch of colour and life to our home.

One that keeps on giving until the next week when I have to force myself back to the grocery store to do it all over again.

  1. I agree with you about the art of keeping a home is a rewarding one. Nothing makes me feel better than when my teenage granddaughter says my house looks like a magazine and the other one tells me when she drops by that it always smells so good. When my own children were growing up we were all too busy to find the joy of housekeeping but now that my husband and I are retired I have more time to relax and enjoy making my home welcoming and reflective of what our family is all about. My husband and I love gardening so having fresh flowers to arrange, herbs for cooking with and fresh vegetables to enjoy in the summer and put up for the winter are an important part of this new phase of our life.

    1. I love that Kathy – “the art of keeping a home” – that’s exactly what I’m striving for! And I agree, life seems so busy it can be hard to find the joy in maintaining a comfortable, welcoming and beautiful home, but I love your take on how that’s changed and evolved. And your garden sounds like a dream! That’s exactly what I’m striving for (eventually) as we plant our first garden this year too! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts Kathy! I really loved reading this!

  2. I actually DREAD going to the grocery store to. I’m not sure why, it’s not like it’s all that hard. I just would really rather not. Buying fresh flowers really does make it easier though! And I love the how you’ve added the greenery to the roses! So pretty.

    1. Hahaha! I say the same thing – I’m not sure why I dread it so much, but it’s my absolute least favourite chore! Thanks so much Emily!

  3. The flowers are gorgeous and so is your kitchen Kristi! You’ll think I’m crazy but grocery shopping is my favorite!! I’d go twice a week if I needed to! lol!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
