Fall Flowers

Last weekend's flower arrangement is holding up beautifully-- even six days later!  I told you that I bought the "florists special" on a super bargain at my grocery store. When I got home, I separated every flower by type and filled a bowl with water and aquafoam (I started with this white porcelain bowl, but later changed to the silver footed Paul Revere bowl that I picked up at my flea market!).



I like to start off with the cheaper "filler" flowers. I have no idea if I am doing this correctly by florists standards, but this works for me. By filling the bowl with the cheap stuff, it creates an even fill and then I can pick and choose where to showcase the pretty, more expensive flowers.



The next day, I moved the bowl of flowers from the dining table to our buffet.  Fresh flowers are a simple way of bringing a little bit of the season into your house...  and, I especially love mums because they seem to last forever.  Now, that's bang for your buck.
