A floral before & after

Today I did some prepping for my little wine and cheese party I am going to have on Tuesday. I bought some flowers for the event and I was thinking they looked a little blah, so I wanted to show you guys how quickly (and cheaply) I turned just so-so flowers into a much nicer bouquet!

So, here is the before (this container is also one of my favorite Southern Living at Home items---love it---you can put all of your party silverware in there. So cute!)
And this is the after. Look how much prettier and full the arrangement looks with just a few hosta leaves from my flower bed.
Apparently my phone camera works a bazillion times better under the light in my kitchen. But, here is my little rose arrangment before.
And here it is after. So much better!
More party pics to come. I have a few cute details I am working on for Tuesday night!
