My husband brought me an arrangement of roses that I adore! They were very fresh and well prepared because they lasted over a week! I love that they were neat and low- a perfect arrangement for a table. The florist packed the container tight with greens to keep the roses in place (there was no floral foam used), cut the stems of the roses low, the heads of the flowers were just above the rim and completed it with dark Eucalyptus leaves. Understated but stunning!
