VECELO Artificial Silk Flowers in Vase, Blue
The coastal grandmother always has an abundance of fresh flowers in her home—courtesy of her large garden. While we love fresh-cut flowers, artificial blooms offer a long-lasting, all-season alternative. Plus, they’re a lot more affordable in the long run as opposed to buying bouquets from the farmers’ market every week. We especially chose this pretty arrangement as it includes every flower a coastal grandma would approve of, plus a glass vase at a fraction of the price.
