An arrangement you can make for $0

Floating Camellias

Floating Camellias

What you need:

  • 5-6 camellia blooms
  • a roundish vase (I used a 10 inch bubble bowl.  You could use a glass kitchen bowl or a blue and white bowl.)

Steps: 1

 

Rated: Super Easy Arrangement

This is a modern arrangement you can make for zero dollars, as long as you have camellia bushes or you have a friend who does.  You just cut them with a short stem, clean and dry the green leaves off, put some water in a bowl and float them.  They look dreamy.  It's kind of an optical illusion looking at them through the glass because they look bigger.  There is no front or back to this arrangement and the best part is if one of the flowers 'goes down' or starts looking sad, you can just replace it.  Voilà!  You are done.  Congratulations.  It looks gorgeous.
