entertaining with style- making it work for you

There are so many things to love about Trader Joe’s. They always have a beautiful array of fresh vegetables. There’s their convenience items like steamed and peeled baby beets or ready to serve lentils. Affordable finds such as creamy burrata. I’m simply mad about their pita crackers. And then there are the flowers. No one has an excuse not to have fresh blooms in their home when a Trader Joe’s is nearby.

I get so excited when the cut tulips and potted daffodils finally arrive. Each week I fill paper bags full of them, then create simple arrangements for all the rooms in my home. So no matter the weather outside, spring shines brightly inside.

Here is a floral display that is literally as easy as… 1, 2, 3.

First head off to a craft store and pick up three decorative 5-inch pots. Remember in floral design there’s magic in odd numbers.

Next, pick up three miniature daffodils.

Remove the daffodils from their plastic and paper sleeves.

Place each inside one of the decorative pots.

Line them up for a sunny show all season long.

When the blooms fade, replace the daffodils and plant the spent bulbs outside and they will come up in your yard next spring.

You’ve got this one in the bag!
