Small baskets are relatively inexpensive and most already have one or two lying around. Take one and fill them up with some fruit for an instant treat. This is great for spring and for fall with the seasonally appropriate fruits of course!

4. Herbs in your face.

For a simple look and a very nice-smelling treat, try using herbs in place of more expensive flowers. They’re vibrant and dainty. Perfect for the breakfast nook that overlooks the backyard. Potting these in some mason jars would be a perfect touch.
