A few weeks ago I was at Costco and they had two dozen flowers on sale for $13.99. I really enjoy having fresh flowers around the house and for this price, I grabbed a bunch and didn’t look back.

Once I got home I was looking for a vase, my kitchen is still not back together since the remodel, and I couldn’t find a vase but I did spy a pink pail I bought from the dollar spot at Target back in the spring and that’s when I started thinking.  I am not sure if the pail is purely decorative or if it would hold water and rather than fill it with water and see if it would work I decided to try something different which I am so glad I did.

I like to measure one perfectly and use that as my guide.

That works great when you want everything to be approximately the same height and that’s the look I wanted for this display so I was good to go.

As I went along, I placed one dozen roses in each jar. It was a perfect snug fit.
