Sorry about that.
Go pick them out of the garbage now because I'm going to show you some beautiful topiaries that you can make with them!
First off you'll need a bunch of roses from Costco.
They sell 2 dozen for $17.99, which is so insanely inexpensive I don't know why Hubby doesn't bring them home to me more often (not so subtle hint).
I found a couple of glasses at a garage sale last summer - which would probably be hideous as actual drinking glasses, but they are adorable as vases:
As per yesterday, insert the perpendiculars first and then fill with greens until nice and lush.
I made one with 3 roses and the other with 5 - just to see which I liked better.
I like them both.
I found one other dish in my Christmas stash that held a centrepiece last year - so I decided to fill it again this year:
So $17.99 for roses, maybe $1 for the two glasses and the leftover greens from yesterday and you have 3 arrangements that you can display together, put out separately or leave at someone's doorstep as an inexpensive, but beautiful Secret Santa gift!
I may put one on my desk and one in my bathroom so I can enjoy them everywhere.
For now I'll gaze lovingly at them in my dining room.
PLUS, if you keep them and the roses wilt a bit, all you have to do is replace those few stems - the greens should last the entire Holiday!
Have a great one!
