Cut Flowers Display Idea

Cut flowers or bouquets don't have to be displayed in a vase. Anything that holds water will work.

Chris: This is a great tip! I love the watering can used as a vase ... and those blooms are really gorgeous!! What type of flower is that?

I've been known to stick flowers in any available container that will hold water! Smiling I once even used a little ceramic birdhouse that I filled with water for a few daisy stems .

A few containers I currently have holding cut flowers ... all fading at the moment but I thought I'd share some examples to give folks some more ideas of containers that can be used:

A little glass cruet holding rain lilies, gloriosa lily, rose and penta stem:

A little white Pitcher (in the guest bathroom - lighting is awful) holding a fading Phalaenopsis Orchid stem:

Lin, those are all so cute! Smiling

The flowers in my picture are peonies. I just stuck them in there intending to move them to a different container later but never did.

Aaah ... Beautiful Peonies! I wish they'd grow in Florida but sadly they aren't a flower we can grow down here. Sad I remember seeing them in upstate N.Y. once when visiting my husbands brother and family and asked my sister in law what those big, beautiful blooms were ... I fell in love with those beauties but didn't remember the name!

They are one of my favorites, and most of them smell wonderful!
