What is one to do when the only flowers available are a multi-coloured mix from the check-out aisle at the grocery store?

It can be a conundrum.

I like to make the best of it by separating out the whites into their own bouquet.

 In this case I joined them with 3 roses that if left in the colourful vase would have not had nearly as much impact.

To further differentiate the final results I cut down the second group dramatically and put them in a much shorter vase.

Now who would guess that each bouquet came from a standard, brash check-out arrangement, would you?

  1. I really like the whites and reds together, Derek. I've noticed color combinations tend to show up several times the same week, oddly. The other bouquet is more eclectic and has a California feel, probably because of the Eucalyptus.

    1. I do have a soft spot for while flowers as well...I suppose that's why I planted a whole Moon Garden!

  2. And I like the look of the second one more - isn't it interesting to see how differently things turn out when you change the constituent parts?

    1. Yes, it is fun to play with this particular type of bouquet since every once in a while we have one in the house and I always have to separate some out and spread them around.
