Easy Flower Arrangement From The Manor

Long before I moved to our home, I would be a regular patron in the floral department to get the freshest selection of pretty blooms. The girls at the counter were always quite happy to see me since I was there weekly.
 But then we moved to home in the country -affectionately called 'Duke Manor' and things began to change. 
See, I didn't need the girls at the floral department, I had what I needed right here at the manor to make my own little pretty arrangements.
Actually I should be a little upset with the girls at the counter because they never told me how easy it was to use the blooms from my own yard
along with the basics that I already had- scissors, a glass bowl, a few rocks and some water
 I guess they also thought that I couldn't cut the stems at an angle
and place in my bowl, with my rocks and water
and repeat
Until I got this
Shame on you girls!!

Laura,

What a great tutorial. I'm flower arranging challenged. I used to joke about people who took that elective in college ... and now I wish I had taken one myself!

But thanks to fab bloggers like you, I can now learn a lesson or two ...

Thanks so much for the reminder of how easy and wallet friendly it is to use what you have instead of buying new! These are just lovely and now I am off to snip some flowers from yard and bring them inside to enjoy! Thanks for linking up!
