We love flowers all the time — on special occasions like Valentine's Day or just because — and why not? They look and smell amazing, and brighten every space in the house. But keeping a vase of fresh-cut flowers isn't always the most economical option. That's where budget buds, like carnations, daisies, and mums, come in. Often written off as common, cheap, and un-special, these blooms can look surprisingly sophisticated — and they're available at nearly every grocery store or deli.
