I went to Food Pyramid and just picked up some of their $4 bunches in fall colors. These are rust asiatic lilies, yellow mums, ivory spray roses and green hypericum berries.
I had a square vase at home (my favorites) and started with the asiatic lilies. I kind of arranged them on three of the corners to make it kind of take up most of the vase as a base.
Next, I added the clumps of spray roses.
And filled in with hypericum berries and mums. Also, I always love to tie up with a bow. I feel like it finishes it off.
1- It is okay to cut the stems. They need to be proportional to the vase.
2- You don't have to use every flower. If you have extras just cut them and put them in another container like I did with this mason jar. Now my mom has flowers for her room and I have a little arrangement for my counter top.
Thank you all for all of your prayers, calls, emails, texts and comments about my mom. Today was a much, much better day and I am sure with each day she will get better. Her doctor's goal was for her to walk from her bed to the nurse's station. Well, my mom is a go-getter, so she took it one step forward and walked around the floor - three times. The more she gets around the better, so we are so grateful for all of your prayers for healing.
Tomorrow I will share pictures of the cutest Halloween owl you ever did see!
