Sprucing up our kitchen with new plants

Kitchen plants

I love our kitchen, which was massively extended a couple of years ago (you can read all about it and see a few pics here).

I also really love having fresh flowers in our kitchen. Either on the island or on the dining table. However, it’s not alway practical to buy fresh flowers every week – I’m not that organised and I think hubby would call them an unnecessary luxury! So, recently I’ve been looking for an alternative, and on our recent visit to the Hilton Deansgate in Manchester, I found the perfect solution – some funky plants, which were on the tables when we had breakfast.

At the weekend I was delighted to come across just the plants I was looking for at Homebase. I was even more delighted when I discovered that they were only £3.97. The price included the pot too – bargain! I bought three (I really think three items often work together so much better than two – perhaps that’s why I have three kids!!) and I think they look great on the island in our kitchen.

Here are some pics…

    I’d have fresh flowers every week too if I could justify the expense. These look great hun! x
