Creating 4 arrangements from 1 bouquet of roses

A month and a half ago I had to go through some rigorous testing to become a certified health coach (which I just found out this week I passed everything and am now certified! Yay!) After my first test, my wonderful friend and coworker Jane, surprised me with a huge bouquet of roses.

I was having a dinner party that weekend so I was hoping to find a creative way to  use the bouquet, rather than just place it in the middle of the table.

So I gathered two chevron tins, which I had gotten a few months back from the dollar section in Target…

and this little glass bottle which was once filled with Trader Joes yellow curry…

I cut the stems and arranged the roses in the chevron tins like so.

Then I filled the glass bottle.

When it came to filling the green tin, I remembered I had wanted to try this idea from Pinterest to make the arrangement even and full. I kind of wished I did that with the other tins but oh well.

And there you have it! Four different floral displays from one bouquet of roses.
