Close on the heels of last month’s 1 bouquet in 10 ways post here is me trying to do something similar. This time however I forgot to take the before pics when the bouquet was in its prime. I usually keep it the way it is for 4-5 days. Once I see the first signs of wilting I start splitting it around so that I can get the max life out of the flowers. This is what I started with;
See the roses drooping? After trimming the stems, I moved them over to the coffee table.
I left those roses out like that for over a week and was surprised that they had dried by themselves and had turned a pinkish coral color. You might have seen them in the tribal bowl post.
The coral carnations and the apple green mums made a great pair in my trusty glass that always doubles as a vase.
The cabbage (yes it is cabbage for real) made quite a statement in my mom’s pickling jar.
Oh, by the way the table in the last two pics is a new find (details coming soon). Here it is again holding another new find, the Buddha candle and the baby’s breath.
The left over greens were perfect for the mantle.
In a week the same greens moved over to the living room.
Do you move flowers around your home too? Or am I the only crazy one?
