The first reason, guilt...as was the case when my handsome husband and I reupholstered a $3.99 Goodwill chair together.
The second reason...a special occasion, like our anniversary, which I ironically displayed in a Goodwill vase.
Often times, if I've been given flowers for the latter reason, it is also accompanied by a celebration that looks something like this.
Believe it or not, all these details are thought of and executed by my husband, who I assure you is not scouring pinterest for his inspiration.
Like using the top of the pineapple as the center of the fruit plate.
Some Tiki men also joined our celebration (souvenirs left in our tropical hut for our honeymoon).
No detail was spared.
And, though 7 years ago, this little miss was not part of our big day...
