I was asked to make some flower arrangements for special lunch we were going to have at out church, a farewell to our Pastor and his family, who sadly are leaving us to go back to the US snif snif...
I had a budget of course, and 30 arrangements to do, so I hit the local grocery store and Costco for flowers and my favourite dollar store for vases.
I was so happy that I found beautiful glass vases for 2 bucks at Dollarama and was equally lucky that last weekend everybody, read Costco and grocery decided to have a flower sale. All I have to say... yipieeeeeee!!!!
I knew I wanted to use whole lemons as well, but when I got home I realized I did not have enough... so my solution was to cut them in half, which was perfect in the end as it gave the arrangements an extra citric scent that I loved!
I used cream roses, orange lilies, red and peach gerberas , greenery, a green spiky one I do not know the name ( sorry:0( and lemons cut in half. I use the cut stems of the flowers for the lemons.
My best compliment came from my dear brother in love who is a wonderful and accomplished florist ( you can check his beautiful store and arrangements here )....he said I did well, so I am happy!
Here are some shots:
And let me tell you, the scent was sooo nice...I love flowers!
