Reusing Old Flower Arrangements

My husband had two surprises for me on my last birthday. The first one was that, being a half the world away, he wouldn’t be able to return by my Bday. But, since I got the news in advance, it was not already a surprise by the time clock hands started counting September 19th. The second surprise was an unbelievably beautiful flower arrangement waiting by the door when I came home from work that day.
I mean, the guy was in Kazakhstan, in the middle of nowhere as online standards go, and he managed to find and have delivered this awesome piece. Seriously, I went online and tried to find the same arrangement at the most popular flower delivery sites. Ha-ha, I failed! Nothing was even close!

Here it is:

Sorry for not giving the credit just yet. I will find out from my husband who he used for the flower delivery, and will update you all.

The beauty lasted more than two weeks. Then the flowers wilted… But the vase, the foam, and the twigs were as good as new! So, I decided to upcycle them into new, homemade arrangements. Here is my first try with an autumn motive.

I bought the cheapest flower bunch for $5 and added greens clipped from the bushes in the front yard. I plan to keep reusing the vase, so, be on the lookout for the winter-themed arrangement. With berries!

For a good measure, a view of my expensive/inexpensive flower arrangement in the living room. Now, if I could only have more light in my living room. 🙁
