I had my inlaws over to lunch yesterday and I thought it would be nice to have some flowers on the dinner table. The mistake that most people make is to put a tall arrangement in the center of the table that no one can see over. So I decided to recycle the cute little pail I bought a couple of weeks ago, which originally came with roses and greenery in.
So being thrifty I bought a £2 bunch of roses from Tesco, cut the stems to about 2 inches and then popped them in the florist foam in the pail. I think they turned out ok, in fact my MIL asked if they were real – LOL!
