I didn't want to waste the petals so i kept two of the rose heads intact and hung them with ribbon in my bedroom. With the others, i gently took them apart and used the petals almost like potpourri. They still smell amazing.
I got an equally delightful tea set for Christmas so i used a cup and saucer from that to hold the rose petals. The print on the ceramics compliments the romantic colours of the roses.
|I love the bold yet beautiful print on the saucer, This contrasts|
nicely with the delicate petals.
|I left the stalk and remains of the rose head in the|
cup too. I wanted to keep every part of the flowers.
I'm glad i decided to keep the roses and do something creative with them. Now i am reminded of my gorgeous valentines bouquet every time i look up from my desk at home. This little beauty has pride of place on my windowsill.
