Friday Flowers

While I was changing around my Entry Hall I made this Champagne Bucket arrangement with 
white roses and greenery.  
I promised you a short tutorial on this 
flower arrangement this week.  
You will love how simple and quick this is!
 I started with two dozen white roses from Costco.  
They sell them for $16.50 for two dozen.  
I picked up a bunch of greenery too while I was there.  
I keep these buckets in my Laundry Room 
and when I come home I can just dump the flowers in them with some water until I am ready to create.  
My idea was to have a mass of white roses in the center and to have the greens all around the edge.  
I placed some wet floral foam into the cooler portion of the champagne bucket and 
started placing the roses in the middle.
Remember to take all of the leaves off of the roses 
as you are working with them.  
Once I had them all in the bucket 
it was time to add the greenery.
I snipped a bunch of evergreen branches 
from my backyard to fill in 
and mix with the other greens.
For easy clean up I spread out the clear cellophane 
that the flowers are wrapped in 
and use it to put all of my clippings onto.  
Once I am done I can just wrap it all up and throw it away!
I just love green and white together during the winter.  
Red would look pretty too.  
I took little snips of the evergreen and placed them all throughout the roses to hide any holes.
It really didn't take me more than 10 minutes 
to make this arrangement.  
I spritzed it with some water to freshen it up and they usually will last at least a good week or so.  
Have A Really Great Weekend!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves

Love this arrangement in the champagne bucket Cindy. I just missed a champagne bucket today at an estate sale. I will get one eventually.

Silver, green and white - my favorite! That's a great deal on the roses! That looks like White Pine, which I have always admired and wished I had access to one for the beautiful cones and wispy boughs.

thanks for making it look so easy. I'm all thumbs with flowers, but I think I can follow this tutorial with ease.

The white roses in the champagne bucket are elegant. Love the addition of the pine branches and eucalyptus berries.
