Fresh-Cut Friday #4



Thanks for joining in on another Fresh-Cut Friday! The linky tool will be up at 6:00pm tonight, Phoenix time, and then all weekend if you would like to add your flowers to the party list.
(I'ld be so happy if you did).
Remember to add a link back to my blog in your post. That way we can all share the pretties.


Today I'm showing the flowers that we had on our Thanksgiving table. I really went all out and got these at Target. That's right.... $7.99 a bundle for bouquets that included hydrangea. I couldn't believe it. And they lasted a full week! What a deal.
I got a little creative with my vases....er....cans...
We're so country in this house... it totally worked.




I did these keeping the Christmas season in mind...

So simple.

Miniature Carnations and Roses. These are called Arrow Follies.

I hope you like them. I can't wait to see your flowers.

Dear Liz,
What a precious idea! I'm not sure if the flowers jazz up the cans or the cans jazz up the flowers, but it works! The flowers are beautiful, and yes, I will probably copy too! Thanks for sharing. God bless.

What a cute idea to use those cans for vases! I must remember to do that too.

Thanks for having me today. I am so proud of myself...I have finally grown some hydrangeas!

Best wishes,

The flowers are gorgeous. I love the contrast of the sturdy little cans and the delicate flowers.
May file this idea away!

Liz, I'm kicking myself that I let this week slip by. For some reason I thought it was next Friday. :-(
I'm going to put it on my calendar so I catch this for January. Love this idea, and putting flowers in the pumpkin can is a clever idea. ~ sarah

LIZ!
Great minds must think alike - for obviously several years now - I have those same Christmas Dishes! (and the red and white checkered and polka dotted in the other post too!)
WhoooHoo! Karen
