How to spruce up some flowers

Well as you know I left my job and was given a couple of bunches of flowers, two weeks ago. Some of them were starting to die this week so I wanted to combine the remaining of the best of the two bunches and added in some wild flowers which I picked from our walk at the weekend - http://scarletrealm.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/a-lovely-summertime-walk.html

Walking around I picked a variety of wild flowers in all different colours....

  And gathered them into a glass....

I used the remaining of these flowers from the two bunches. I cut off the ends of the good to use flowers and made up some fresh water in the vase.
A few white and purple flowers which have lasted over 2 weeks!

Two remaining pretty peach roses to use
And combined them together to make this. I haven't ever done flower arranging before but I don't think I did a bad job!
Pretty-shabby chic vase :)

And I added a pretty gingham ribbon.

 And there you go, re-used nearly good flowers mixed with wild flowers :) 

Hope you like them! xxx


  1. Lovely flower arrangement and it's much better to save the ones you could than chuck the whole bunches out. I've grown some flowers for cutting this year am Ok at the growing but not half as good at arranging them!
