This is another busy week of work and travel ahead, but I thought I'd share a quick tip with you for easy flower arranging. When preparing for my husband to make a trip to Illinois to visit his parents a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to arrange a bouquet of hydrangeas out of my garden to give to my mother-in-law.
If you follow me, you may know I collect flower frogs. I use them both for their intended purpose and to incorporate into my decor. I wanted something a bit less messy for car travel to Illinois--a traditional frog in a vase seemed like it could have been a sloshy mess.
Works like a charm. I placed the frog/toothbrush holder down inside a clear glass vase--empty at this point. It's unlikely that there would be much spillage out of the holder, but if there were, it would be contained in the empty vase.
On arrival at the destination, the vase could be filled with water, too, which would cover the homemade flower frog inside.
So, if you don't have your own flower frog and don't want to mount a quest for one, pull out an old toothbrush holder and brush up on your flower arranging.
Make it a great day!
