vase-less flower arrangement (right on the table)

vaseless flower arrangement on a table

Sally Schneider

Our friend Maria Robledo LOVES her garden and makes the most astonishing, impromptu arrangements from her cuttings. We were charmed and delighted by the arrangement we found on her dining table recently: no vase, no water, just a spray and a cluster of flowers placed directly on the tabletop. The flowers stayed fine throughout several hours of dinner, and Maria gave them to us to take home. We put them in water and they are just fine, two days later. The gist: If you are lucky enough to have a garden or access to JUST-cut flowers,  sprays and clusters of the freshest of flowers can often hang out without water for quite a while.
