Since the bouquet is smaller, I looked around the house for a few bits and pieces to use with the flowers on a tray giving it more impact on our coffee table. I placed a piece of lace with a shoe pincushion, wooden spools with lace, glass votives with tea lights and an oil lamp. Unfortunately it still has a golden color oil from the winter season in it but I like having this height in the tray and the three flames as evening falls.
The little pillow was added which was just the right touch. It was a gift from my dear friend Barbara. I love using it in my living room vignettes.
These roses have lasted so long like my love for my husband. We are now working on our second 25 years together.....
