WHEN IN DOUBT, BRING FLOWERS

One of my friends brought me the prettiest bouquet of pink tulips as a housewarming gift (aren't they gorgeous?) and they make me so happy every time I walk in the door. Note to self: the next time I'm invited to a friend's place, flowers it is! And in case you're curious, here are my three favorites...
Pink tulips...
And pink peonies. What's your favorite flower? Do you have a go-to housewarming gift?

P.S. Lots more floral inspiration right here!

I totally agree! Flowers make a house a home. And how lovely these are.

I always come armed with flowers (usually one of your three choices) and a bottle of champagne.

Happy Friday!

I am in love with peonies. They are the prettiest. I had a huge peony bush already planted when I bought my house, but they just did not last long. :(

Tulips and peonies are my favourite too! What a thoughtful friend. Flowers really finish a space and make it feel styled.

My favorite gift is "House Wine" from The Magnificent Wine Company". It's reasonable priced, and has such a cute label! Perfect for someone that has recently moved!

I love fluffy peonies in the spring and cafe au lait dahlias in the fall for myself--but when I buy flowers as a hostess gift, I like to go with something white, especially if I'm not familiar with their decor :)

i love blue hydrangeas, pink and white peonies and white anemones. i really like stargazer lilies for the smell but hate having to clean up after them.

Funny.... I just took a friend a vase of white tulips today. Love to give and receive them! My "go-to" housewarming gift is a self-inking return address stamp or embosser..... tons of stylish choices on Etsy.

Blue hydrangeas always make me think of summer time on the cape! I LOVE them, and mixing them with blue and white ceramic and china pieces is brilliant, absolutely gorgeous! I always need to have flowers in my apartment, thanks for the inspiration!
