If you are the impatient sort and not enough time to tend to the delicate needs of natural blooms is your excuse, this one’s for you. Put together a pretty bunch of rusty artificial leaves and flowers. Use duct tape to keep them in place. Fix it in a small burlap sack or gunny bag half filled with kidney beans. Add a fancy ribbon and style it to your sensibilities. No one will ever know you escaped the brunt of taking care of your pretty buds, while you’ll still have the benefit of a sack of gorgeousness accentuating your living space.
What do you do with the many candles you received for Christmas? You turn it into a pot of delight. Take a small flower pot, fill it with pebbles and layer the top with small flowers, ferns, berries and leaves. Rest your tea light in the midst of the bouquet and you are set for a candle lit date.
You have a thing for high-tea and British cutlery, but just can’t get the scones right? Brew some mulled apple tea and invite your friends over to admire your flower decoration at the table. Use the three-tier cake stand and exploit your creativity. Arrange flowers of various colour and shapes as you match it with your new tea set. Even better, turn your humble tea party into a DIY flower arrangement soirée. A toast to good taste!
If the sight of pretty roses is all that appeals to you, simply get a glass bowl or a stout vase and layer your favourite roses – add enough to make you smile.
