I love to float flowers.....easy on days when I don't feel great, or it is so hot. I bought two dozen roses today and had fun making arrangements, floated quite a few.
Crystal and Glass
Hey sally, I have the same crystal dish as the one with the 3 red roses. It belonged to my great grandmother and not sure where she got it. I'll have to float somethin in it to show you. What a great idea just floating round. I have lots of crystal and these would look great on the bar? Bling, I hear the sound of ideas flowing!
Now is that last bowl one are they floting in a bit of water, can't quite tell, lovely piece by the way.
Yes, they are all floating. They last forever this way! Easy and I think they are pretty.
Hi Sally, Beautiful floating arrangements! Love this idea, Thanks for a new thread.
Thanks. Most of us have done it. I love the way flowers last when they float. When you float lots of small flowers in a large, flat container, it is nice. Looks so serene.
I recall last year how well my passiflora did floating. I am kicking myself cause I had wanted to float one of my big tree peonies and forgot all about it, dang! Next year perhaps?
Been looking for a large flat glass container Sally... no luck yet!
that is such a neat way to display roses...
I floated camellias after being inspired by the folks in this forum & was pleased with how that looked.
I think I now have an idea for the last of my roses ...
shame it is now dark & very cold - I would love to run out & pick some things to give it a go.
I am tempted to brave it anyway but my hubby already thinks I am out of my mind.
No need to reinforce that impression.
Hey if he already thinks it they why try to prove him wrong! Just go get them and enjoy a few more blossoms while you have them. Perhaps you can just imagine you are rescuing them from the cold winter weather?
I never would have thought to use this candy glass (?)
for flowers until I saw this thread.
My oh my what a pretty dish of roses, makes me hungry for some chocolates.
Very pretty roses dalfyre, they look lovely with the frost on them, at first I thought you had added sugar!
Nice to have your roses in the house when you get home! Good idea to use a sundae glass!
Dalfyre, LOVELY!!!! Simple and longlasting too. Would be nice for a table arrangement with big chocolates around the bottom! Roses, pretty dish and chocolate! Time for some M&M'S, excuse me while I get some!
thanks for the positive feedback guys :)
as I said I would never have thought of it without the inspiration from here.
I have a box of stuff that was my husband's Grandmother's and will have to look at it again with new eyes.
That is where the candy glass came from.
Terri, how pretty! Pearls? So nice! I think flowers can really look like treasure!
oh that is so pretty!
in Aussie they call white elephant stalls trash 'n' treasure...
got me wishing I could check out the regular church stall up the road - they hold it on Saturdays when I am working.
Thank you Sally and dalfre, I enjoyed making use of a single pink rose that was flowering in the garden.
The pearls are to fill the bottom of the glass!
My post sounds like I questioned the pearls. Sometimes posts don't come out right.
I was just wondering of beads or pearls. It is beautiful. You can do a lot with one bloom, love it.
That is gorgeous. I think these simple and elegant bowls are great for a wedding or party.
Haighr, the babies breath, flowers and glass are so feminine and pretty!
Thanks Sally for the inspiration to do this, they do make quite the presentation.
You know, you can take nice photos and make cards on Walgreen's site or Shutterfly etc. I have done that with various photos of all kinds. You can leave it blank and it works for any occasion.
I write a bit of poetry and have often made my own greeting cards using the Hallmark program that I have.
Thanks Candee. Lovely floating arrangements, they are so delicate and pretty.
Love the Rose and Gyp, where's the wedding? perfect! Great background with the wicker.
Nice placement in the first one. Lovely to see your flowers in arrangements again..... keep snipping!!

Thanks - I am waiting for a bit more to snip and then more to share. The gyp is really full this year and I have a pink one and white one, hard to see the difference in the photo, but can see them well in person, come on over and I'll show ya!
Bar b que ribs and Cherry pie as I imagine it will take a few days for you to get here so I can marinade the ribs and hopefully those cherries will arrive soon?
Thank you for the invite, sounds delicious!
