Romantic table flowers
This is a brilliant way to jazz up a plain glass or jar to make a gorgeous romantic flower arrangement for an outdoor party. They look amazing lined up along the centre of a table or with nightlights dotted between them.
You need -
Waterproof blu-tack (or double sided sticky tape at a push)
A glass or jar
Broad pretty leaves - I used a hosta
Cut a strip of waterproof blu tak in half lengthwise and wrap around the top and bottom of your glass.
Stick your leaves to the blu tak so that they cover the glass - squash them into it so that they are firmly anchored.
Carefully cut the stems so that they are flush with the bottom of the glass.
Fill with flowers cut short so that they balance on the lip of the leaves - the effect should be natural and not too symetrical.
I find that the hosta leaves will last a couple of days out of water - if you need the to stay perky for longer stand the arrangement on a saucer of water
