One of the most frequent questions I am asked is how to style a coffee table, what to put on a console table, mantel, desk, etc. While there is no precise formula, you can’t go wrong with the combination of books, flowers and a decorative object. Of all flowers, orchids are my favorite to use. I like them because they add height to a vignette and can add a much-needed pop of color.
The other bonus is that they are relatively inexpensive. My local Trader Joe’s sells decent sized ones for $9.99 and they last forever. No, I have not figured out how to regrow them, but if anyone has any tips, I am all ears. While many in the design world are over them, I think they are a timeless and exotic beauty and I can’t get enough of them!
Don’t you love how they are used in the spaces below?

Do you decorate with orchids? They are definitely my flower splurge for myself. I have tons in the house and even mix in a few faux orchids and people can never tell which ones are real and which are faux!
If you have a tried and tested method for keeping them alive and/or getting them to re-bloom, please tell in the comments!!
