Hi Brenda,

I'm going back to my time owning a flower shop now...

a couple suggestions that are inexpensive....

a simple rose bowl (usually find these at dollar stores for $1 with some blue stones (for fishtanks)...fill part way with water and add just the bloom of a single white carnation to float on top

you could alternate a flower bowl with the same rose bowl, stones with a candle too.

.................................
or fill taller clear glass vases with blue and white Christmas bulb ornaments (a little silver thrown in would be pretty too)

good luck,
Traci

Hi Brenda,
I was going to suggest the dollar store or GW and get glass vases to put a flower in and add ribbon around the vase. I like traci's idea too.
Good luck!

Hi Brenda,
Pumpkin flower arrangements are beautiful for fall. Esp. if you take a real pumpkin and put fresh flowers in the area that you have carved out. I know you are crafty and will think of something awesome. hugs, Lecia

Could you do the glass vases tied with blue/white ribbons with fall leaves and branches?
Or how about sponging on blue and white paint to get more of those colors in there.
I'm not too good at picturing stuff. I usually have to try a bunch of options to see what it will really look like, so sorry if these sound horrifying! :)
