What you'll need to make this arrangement:

2 Glass Coffee Mugs
6-8 'Vanilla' Marigold blooms - (depending on size)
2-4 Heliotrope flower heads - (depending on size)
4 Straight green stems - (from any green plant)

Instructions:
Arrange Marigold blooms in each coffee mug as in photo, carefully fill mugs with water being sure to hold down blooms so they don't float out of position. Top with Heliotrope and add Green Stems for "straws".
Enjoy!

Lasts approx 3-4 days.

That is lovely! yellows and purples look beautiful together, and in this case yummy too.
