Champagne Bucket Version 1

Hi Friends,

Now that the Olympics are Over
I am able to get back to a few simple projects I've been wanting to tackle

I found a nice champagne bucket recently
And have decided to add flowers to it for my dining table

Using 'fake' flowers is not something I do often

But I'm willing to give it a try

I went to my local Micheal's with my 
25% off your entire purchase coupon
This is a great one, especially if you purchase several items 
Which are already on sale

I got a square foam
But needed to cut off the corners to fit inside the bucket

I also purchased several types of white flowers
I thought they would work best for a 
Fresh, clean simple arrangement

Once I place the foam in the bucket
I just began adding flowers
This is my first real arrangement
So I'm sure I'll do Lots of tweaking over the next several days, weeks...

I am quite pleased with the look
I will be adding a fun spring vignette to the table 
But for tonight
It makes me happy

I'm joining these great bloggers

  1. As a professional floral designer I have to say you did a great job. However, if you use a product called John Henry for silk flowers it is much better. Michaels does carry it, I have gotten it there. I love an all white arrangement, beautiful!

  2. This is a lovely arrangement and to get the compliment from Pinky above is wonderful.

    I love the pale pink in some of the blooms in this bouquet.

    Have a lovely week Cindy ~ FlowerLady

  3. Your arrangement looks beautiful in your new bucket!!

  4. What a fun idea to use an ice bucket. My ice bucket is not that pretty.

    Your floral arrangement is beautiful.

  5. Wonderful! You're so talented, Cindy. I applaud all your efforts at creativity.
