If you have a house on Martha's Vineyard we're willing to bet you're hosting friends or family sometime over the next two weeks. This is the time of year that everyone wants to visit the island and we don't blame them - the fair, fireworks, hot afternoons splashing in the ocean - you can't beat it.
The thing is, houseguests sometimes bring stress (and not just the laundry kind). We all want a clean and cheerful home for guests to enjoy and with a few little floral touches you can make your home feel extra special, without breaking the bank.
So, how do you do it? We suggest calling the shop and requesting 4 small bottle arrangements at $25 each to place around the house. Maybe you place one in the guest bathroom, on a bedside table, out on the back porch, and on the kitchen island.
Another idea is placing local lavender bundles in key locations. They are the most fragrant and elegant treats for bathrooms, top drawers, and outdoor shower ledges.
If you'd rather go big, spending $100 on a single arrangement to surprise your guest in their bedroom is sure to make an extra special impact. Nothing beats falling asleep to the smell of roses after a long day at the beach but we're warning you, with that kind of treatment, your guests are sure to come back again next summer...and again the summer after that.
