Just Because Roses

Just Because Roses

Just because you are you! Just because you do so much! Just because you are my friend! Just because you mean so much to me! Just because I love you! Unexpectedly receiving a bunch of pretty roses says all this and more. It’s so nice to be gifted with your favorite bunch of flowers Just because.

While out shopping with our youngest son, my husband Carlo decided to surprise me with a beautiful bouquet of lovely roses.

It was a very sweet present of incredible roses. Twenty-four to be exact, of lovely ruffled edge ivory and pink toned roses. Ooh! How dainty and elegant they looked. A girly girl bunch of prettiness. My favorite! Just Because Roses

I thought they needed to be displayed in something different and not just one of the pitchers I usually use…but what? Aah! How about my tureen that had no top. It has a pretty shape and all twenty-four roses could be arranged in it with no crowding. I filled the tureen with water and set floral foam (for water) in it. When the foam absorbed the water it was ready to hold the stems. I cut the roses to fit the depth of the tureen. Floral foam is best to use when you’re arranging in a shallow container.

I love how their ruffled petals look so delicate. The ivory color softens the pink color in the blooms. The two tone effect of the ivory on the outside and the pink on the inside is delightful. I think they are one of God’s prettiest creation in the floral world.
