The trouble with going to floristry evening classes is that our flat is just rammed with flowers. Life can be so difficult sometimes.
My hand-tied bouquet from last week was getting tired, so I dismantled it and upcycled the surviving stems along with a few blooms from our garden into new vases.
This week, the theme at my class was ‘All Things Vintage’, and so we created autumnal jam jars, and flowers spilling out of teacups.
The teacup flowers were not destined for a long life, so again I dismantled my arrangement and rescued the best stems so that they could stay pretty for a bit longer in this pewter tankard.
Then I played around with a few things I had left over.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, who like me is enjoying finding those remaining blooms that linger in the October garden. Visit her page to see her vase for this week along with links to all the other vases created by garden bloggers today.
