A great friend just recently lost her grandfather, and within a few day, her grandmother as well. So, some much needed sunshine in the way of garden-picked flowers were in store for her. After a quick walk around with Ezra to choose just the right mix (he's very particular), I came inside only to realize I did not have an extra vase. It was much to late to run out and grab one, as dinner and bedtime were impending, so I began to hunt.
Flower pot to the rescue! There is most always one or two extras of these lying around, and I had just the perfect size. I placed some floral foam inside a large zip-loc bag, as I wanted her to be able to give them fresh water in the days to come, and proceeded to arrange just like any other container.
I think they turned out just great, and what a great, inexpensive way in which to arrange flowers. Love it when things work out better than planned.
