I thought the last one, or the first one, because of the addition of beads? But I don't know if terri has a mettalic bowl, because she would have bought that into the flowerpot by now!
The first one has the most fireworksy look about it!
Hope I haven't offended ya Terri, if I picked the wrong one!

Sneaking in for a quick peek... I guess the second one. The "vase" is something I think Terri would dream up.

This is a tough one - but I think that I will go with Zanymuse and say the second one too.

Thanks all for having a guess!

Not going to say which is mine yet!!!!
Sue, I'm not offended in the slightest!! I thought they were all quite good this month. Everyone who knows me here will know that I'm not a bit precious about anything I create, some work, some don't. Thats it!!!!!! LOL

The reasons for your choices are interesting!
Anyone else willing to guess?????

Well here is my 2 cents worth, I am going to guess you made all of them LOL! Each is unique. Seriously, I choose #1 as the Terri one. I think you worked this one out with the grassy stuff flowing like fireworks dropping from the sky.
As for #2, looks like somebody used one of your ideas with the glue gun stick vase - it looks like a rendition of one you have done in the past, but don't believe you repeated it.
#3 - I actually thought this was yours at first, looks like flowers you would have chosen from the shop - the colors are unique, but wasn't sure you could get the corkscrew I see in there, but this would be my second guess, if allowed.
I thought the same as you Sue on that metal bowl one, looks like somethin she would dream up, but then I said nah, not that one.
I think the fan one was too symmetrical to be from our Terri?
Now, what is the verdict?

Well well well!

Sue, I loved the beads in the first one! I understand your logic thinking about the metalic bowl.
Zany and Dianne, that container is like something I would use!
Candee, Well done for remembering I have that twiggy container (I did use it last year).


The winner is Zinniagirl Well done !!! I bought the dish a couple of hours before I made the arrangement. LoL!

Today my arrangement looks a bit different. It's 2 days after making it and alot more flowers have opened.

This is what the judge wrote about mine...

Lovely plant material, just a little 'flat' in the centre. Proteas could be lifted out more. Well done.


There's always something wrong !! Here's a close up of the Proteas.

Don't be too bothered, that is what judges are to do, without critiquing they would be out of work! I think it is lovely and congrats to Zinniagirl! You are in the know.

That was a tough challange! They were all wonderful. Next time you'll have to give me a clue... like a big flag planted in the center with your name on it.

I'm happy that I won that contest! Your arrangement is absolutely gorgeous!!! Are these flowers that you grew or do you purchase them?
Too bad we couldn't send each other bouquets...wouldn't that be fun!

Terri - that's a lovely arrangement that you made. As Candee pointed out, the judges probably feel that they have to make some sort of comment to show that they are doing their job. And it also points to your creativity when someone else copies your ideas.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments and for joining in! It was fun.
All the flowers are from the florists, supermarket and market stall. There isn't any flowers in my garden to speak of now!
Looking forward to seeing some more arrangements here!!!!!

Zinniagirl, we can send each other bouquets through cyber space!

I knew that was your one, it was just the dish that threw me off! I expect to see it in the flower pot now!
I love what you've done with the proteas. I might have to go and get a packet of pearl head pins for a try!
Love it
