It’s officially the dead of winter.
Our skin is cracked, our nights are spent indoors, and our brisk morning commutes are a constant reminder that at least one more snowstorm will hit before spring blooms again. Yes, the late-winter lull can fatigue even the most optimistic of us.
Which is why we need a pick-me-up. This year, may we suggest it come in the form of fresh flowers artfully arranged in beautiful vases? There are no body creams or spa visits in the world that will make our skin feel plump and sun-kissed again, and no matter how excited we get by a day over 50 degrees Fahrenheit, we know the mercury will inevitably dip once more.
All that’s left to remind us of warmer days and budding trees is a simple bouquet of fresh blooms—artfully arranged on a windowsill—to brighten up our homes until the weather warms up. If you, too, are in dire need of a late winter pick-me-up, start with one of these cheery vases. You’ll get a head start on spring decorating.
