Please don’t kill me but i used to (bold letters for extra emphasis lol) think giving flowers as gifts was corny. “They die anyway”, “please give me jewelry instead” (not even the fancy ones, Forever21 accessories will do… as long as it’s not flowers). I’m one of those girls who keeps memorabilia in a treasure chest so that one day i can look through them while holding a guitar, singing T-Swift’s songs, and emoting to the max. Not sure why there’s a guitar in this scenario I don’t even know how to play one.
Anyway, this opinion on flowers being corny is now long gone. The more i get them the more i appreciate how their beauty makes me feel beautiful as well. Plus, its the age of take-photos-of-everything-beautiful… and these photos i could keep.
The love of my life gave me a dozen of long stem pink roses last October. Instead of displaying them as is, or putting them in a vase — i used my old Chanel paper bag. The steps are pretty simple, measure and cut the flowers, make sure they have those small plastic pots with water to keep them alive and pretty as long as possible. Before you place them in your paper bag (which BTW doesn’t have to be from Chanel. It can be one of those gold and white gift bags from the gift shop) add some plastic inside the bag for extra protection. Thats it! I guess the moral here is do not throw away fancy paper bags and flowers. They look great as decor :)
