Green Grapes To The Rescue!

Yesterday I told you how I used tomatoes to create an inexpensive and elegant decoration for a party. Well I also used grapes! I'm not the best floral arranger and my long stemmed red Gerber daisies were flopping all over the place. "Too bad you don't have little red marbles or shiny stones," remarked Emily who was helping prep for the party. There wasn't enough time to run to Michael's and buy some so instead I got creative. This makes for a beautiful centerpiece of the month because it's simple, sunny, and stylish. Here's what you do to make a fun Dr. Suess-ish floral arrangement:

  • Fill a vase about half way with water.
  • Toss in enough grapes to create a shallow layer along the bottom of the vase.
  • Gently stab the flower stems into place between the grapes.

So cute! I always have green grapes in my house - although usually in the freezer (my fave summer snack)

I think that's a great idea, I get so frustrated when I can't get my droopy flowers to stand up straight, grapes are a super cute idea!

What a good idea. I always hate it when my longer stemmed flowers are always flopping around.
