I'd like to show you a quick little metamorphosis that I created for a fun and organic look. I did this last year and thought it was the perfect time to show you all how you can take a bunch of grocery store flowers and create an artistic arrangement.
It starts off with a clear glass or vase. I used a straight vase, but a water glass would work just as well.
The next step is to go to your local grocery store and buy one bunch of asparagus. This will be perfect for you Easter table.
Then you simply take the rubber band that was holding your asparagus together and put it around the vase..... you get the idea, right? Start inserting the asparagus between the glass and the rubber band.
I got lucky, and was able to use every last one... it filled in around just right.
Now, just look around your house and find a ribbon, raffia or a piece of fabric and tie it up, trying to cover up the rubber band.
Insert your garden or grocery store flowers inside and you have a fancy smanscy designer bouquet. I believe it couldn't be simpler or more elegant.
Simple and inexpensive , if you are one of the lucky ones that gets to skip the cooking this year and just have to show up at your relatives or friend's house, the hostess will be impressed when you hand them this arrangement.
This teapot caught my eye while shopping at Marshalls. Just my style... hand painted and so cheerful.
These are called Italian Fruit.. sugar and creamer... just in case!
