An Orchid Changes Everything

I have been looking for an orchid for a long time, I just couldn't seem to find one that I really liked and was nice and full, plus it had to look real.   Finally when a friend and I were out for a girls day, I found the perfect one at Home Goods.

A pretty white orchid started a whole chain of events.  I thought the pillows and decor needed to be light and bright too.

 I dug through my stash and found some pumpkin and brown colored pillows that I think look light and bright.

 A few changes to the breakfast table too and I had a whole new room.

  My strutting horse moved from the coffee table to the breakfast table and I filled in the middle with a couple of plants and some wheat.

It's amazing how one little plant can change everything, but then I always like a new look.  

I think changes are always fun, how about you?
