B.Y.O.V.


FlowerSchool New York is an exceptionally ran facility located right in the heart of Tudor City.  Periodically they have classes and events.  Recently they had an abundance of flowers left over from said events.  On their Twitter they announced if you were in the area you could come by and make your own bouquet.  Seriously? City Belle is going to LOVE this.  All I had to do was BYOV
"Bring Your Own Vase!"  

☝This is what I was working with.☟
They had every flower imaginable; from Purple Japanese Orchids to Yellow and Pink Roses, they had it covered.  It was up to me to create a MASTERPIECE!  Nah, I'm kidding.  I was actually really nervous b/c I knew they were professionals and I was a novice.  Not to worry though as they were very nice and accommodating at FSNY.  They provided this ol' Country Boy with shears, scissors, and a plethora of flowers.  
I was the 1st person there with a Vase.

My humble creation. Honestly I did my best and went with it.  I saw their yellow rose bouquet in the window so I started with those and went from there.  That's my bouquet in the window on the 1st pic in the blog...I just didn't tell you.  
 How does it lQQk?
  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
 
After the other flowers withered away I made our own smaller bouquet of yellow roses.  These ended up lasting almost 3 weeks:  
-cut roses at a 45º degree angle,
 -boil the tips in water,
 -place in a vase,
 -fill with warm/hot water, 
-re-fill new clean water daily.  
Those suckers will live forever if you do that.  
Yes, BOIL the tips of the Roses, but only Roses. 
2 Weeks Old 
A HUGE thank you to FlowerSchool New York for their giving spirit.
