Happy Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's Day from the Domestic Dandy!

If you've received roses on this special day, here's a tip from my favorite book by Carlos Mota, Flowers Chic and Cheap.

To make your roses stand out from day one, Mr. Mota suggests gently opening up your rosebuds with a blow dryer.
The gentle warm air generated by the dryer, unfurls the petals for a lush and full bloom without the wait!
I recently tried this little trick on a centerpiece for a dinner party and it had my blooms awake and ready for our guests, and was a wonderful addition to our table!
