Creative people inspire and invigorate my spirit!
Every week, Cristina sources fresh cut flowers from her local farmers market or from around the Home & Family "set" and creates a unique floral arrangement.
This particular floral arrangement caught my eye the other day.
Cristina submerged a fresh, pink hydrangea flower head in a clear vase and topped it with more hydrangeas, baby's breath, pine stems and pine cones.
Underwater, the hydrangeas bract is magnified so that you can appreciate all the subtle shades of pink that make up the flower.
Sometimes, Cristina mixes fresh flowers with silk ones for a long-lasting display.
If the idea of submerging flowers is new to you, this is a novel way to display cut flowers.
When submerged in water, most flowers will last a much shorter time than when they are above water.
Bacteria grows faster, degrading the flower, but it can still be enjoyed for four to five days under water.
