As spring and warmer temperatures are settling in, an abundance of colourful flowers have made their way to most local markets. I like to gather a few different vases and fill them with a beautiful array of flowers that I then spread out on my dining table -- simple and sweet centrepieces. This vase is from a quaint home décor store in Montreal called Buk & Nola -- I like how the blue hue brings a hit of brightness to the table.
