The Rose of sharon is blooming pretty in the yard now. I thought I would put a little table together with some blooms. This tablecloth was found in Alabama a good while back. It’s very vintage and the colors are bright and fun.
I recently came across these juice glasses and they are each holding a stem. They happen to be the exact same shade as my green vase.
This is the vase I used not long ago with a tape grid across the top here.
One thing you need to know, don’t wait to take that tape off!
I used some regular tape I had on hand for everyday, not the floral tape when I did the grid. I had every intention of using it again right away so I just rinsed it out. P. Allen Smith will tell you to always clean out your vases, etc. with hot soapy water and a little bleach to kill whatever bacteria may have started to grow in your container. That way your new flowers start off with a good clean start.
Then I decided to use it and took the tape off. It wasn’t good. There are strips of green lifted from the vase.
So lesson learned!
Meanwhile my new fig bush has fruit!
