La Bella Baskets Fresh Flowers Last For Weeks!
A Documentation In Photos
May 18- 25,2013
( The flowers actually lasted through June 2 before I disposed of them )
The " Delightfully Yours" Bouquet as shown in my online store is shown below and can be ordered by clicking on the bouquet photo.
A handful of freshly cut stems from the three large bouquets are arranged in small drinking glasses with aqua gel beads and a small amount of water. Two glasses per table provided a light touch of color for a mid- Spring evening wedding reception. The aqua gel beads proved to be both an excellent arranging tool to support the cut stems in an upright position within each small drinking glass, and an excellent way to hydrate the freshly cut blossoms on a hot May afternoon with only the aid of fans and open windows. Since only three stems per glass were desired, the extra flowers ( calculated for extra) were left uncut and arranged into a large glass vase to adorn the gift table. A big thank you to my capable assistant, and future daughter-in-law, Liz for her help in arranging the flowers on the tables for me while I was preparing a special meal for the Bride and Groom.
