Things To Do With Rose Petals — With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to share some things you can do with your leftover roses. I have such a hard time throwing away my flowers – whether they’re a gift I received or just an arrangement I picked up at the grocery store, I just want to hold on to them forever! They make me happy. Especially if they’ve been given to me by a loved one – forget about it! They’re setting up shop permanently chez moi! But who doesn’t want to hold on to that little bit of joy for as long as possible??
In this new year, I told myself that I would try to make my happiness a priority. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for years but doesn’t come easy to this recovering people-pleaser. But, if there’s anything that 2020 taught me, it was to stop putting things off. If something’s important to me, I should start now, each and every day, to do something, even the smallest thing, about it. I’ve decided that my self-care is one of those things. When I’m practicing self-care, I’m also making my happiness a priority. And yep, sometimes my self-care comes in the form of a bouquet of roses!
So, if you’re also looking for ways to hold onto your roses this Valentine’s Day, here are 14 sweet and simple things you can do with your leftover rose petals. Happy DIY-ing and Self-Caring! xx, Amanda
