Waste not Want not



Wedding Flowers Revisited


One of the perks of being one of the last to leave is going home with some of the floral arrangements after the affair has ended.


  The next morning I set about placing these gorgeous little arrangements throughout my abode.


 The first one found a place in my entry on my bamboo hall tree next to a gilt Asian figure.


The next two found places in my living room as part of a vignette.


I then placed one inside a sea sponge in the powder room.


And lastly a pair of bouquets on each of our nightstands in the master bedroom.


I just love how they complement the orchids!
 

 I'm always on the lookout for insect brooches to place on my flower arrangements.


This is my nightstand.





 And this is my hubby's.


I have to say that this was the nicest wedding favor I ever received :)

The flowers are beautiful, but I'm really loving all of these peeks in your home - the bamboo hall tree is stunning!!

I love the color combo of green and white...and very cool geodes in your last photo. I hope we can meet again after I move to SF!

How do you attach the brooches to your flower arrangements.

Hi Amy,

I just stick them with the pin sometimes on the stem or leaf but mostly I just lay them or place them on a hardy blossom like a hydrangea.
Sometimes I even have them "crawling" on the vase or plate.
I just stick them pretty much anywhere they look good and don't fall off!!!

The green and white flowers go so well with the texture & collections of your home...nice way to remember the wedding as you look at the flowers throughout the day!

Dear Terri: I love the floral arrangement in the sea sponge...great container idea. I think I saw a little ladybug in your entryway arrangement. Hmmmm! So happy the flowers were not thrown out, but enjoyed by others. Love, Molly
