Late in the afternoon yesterday the husband informed me he had invited another couple to our apartment for pre-dinner cocktails. I was hoping I'd have an opportunity to pick up fresh flowers on my way home but that didn't pan out. Then, as I was walking into our building, I spied the ingredients for a cute little arrangement.
Using decorative grasses and potato vines from the container garden outside our building, I was able to put together a little summer arrangement. It doesn't always take flowers to create natural bouquets. A lot of plants that grow outside can be cut, dropped in a container of water, and used as an impomptu arrangement.
