How do you transform one small bunch of flowers from the grocery store…
and one inexpensive champagne flute glass from Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, or even the thrift store…
into a 5 minute Metamorphosis Monday project?
Cut the stems of flowers from your bouquet very short and pull off all the leaves below the water line, which is going to basically be all of the leaves. Arrange the flowers in the champagne flute. This takes absolutely no flower arranging skills at all. Really! The secret is cutting the stems short enough so most of the flowers sit right above the rim of the flute in a mound…like a scoop of ice cream sitting on an ice cream cone.
In this arrangement, you can see I have a couple carnations on the left that should have been trimmed a little shorter.
This is so quick, easy and inexpensive. For less than $10.00 you have an arrangement that looks far more expensive just because the sleek lines of the champagne flute give it an elegant presence.
When I was working, I would often take one of these arrangements to the office on Monday for my desk. Then on Wednesday afternoon, I would surprise one of my co-workers by passing it to them so they could enjoy it on their desk for the remainder of the work week.
These simple arrangements also make a nice little hostess gift.
One small bunch of flowers from the grocery store…$4.99
One inexpensive champagne flute glass…usually less than $3.99.
