"You don't need tons of flowers to dress a kitchen, and you certainly don't need showstopping arrangements. Instead, fill the kitchen with simple, unpretentious flowers that you can enjoy every day. The best thing about flowers in the kitchen is that they can be relaxed and informal; this is not a traditional spot for floral displays, so no-one has any expectations. This gives you lots of leeway to play with fruit and berries as well as flowers - think rosehips and chilli peppers, or a huge bowl of artichokes with their intriguing furry textures. You don't need to buy flowers - if you have a garden, bring in flowers, foliage or blossom-strewn boughs. Trailing lengths of ivy can be used to decorate a long table, while branches of apple blossom look striking in a tall vase."
