When Marie and Rob were out, they gave Mom a lovely little floral arrangement with a couple mums, a gerber daisy and a rose. These were also in the back of the arrangement. It wasn't until a few days had passed that we realized although the other flowers were real, these are silk.
When the real flowers finally gave up the ghost a couple days ago, I took the silk ones home to see what I could do with them.

And kept repeating that.
Then I found a mini clay flower pot in my stash and filled it with floral oasis.
I had a bit of Dollarama greenery that I put in the centre of the oasis then added the flowers.
Here's the finished arrangement.
