Clusters of hydrangea blooms,
At last week’s catering, there were some unclaimed floral centrepieces. Some of the guests remembered to take theirs, and some were left behind.
They looked beautiful in square glass vases at the centre of each dining table.
I was offered an unclaimed bouquet to take home as a present…..but without the glass vase. The vases belong to the restaurant. I found a new, clear plastic bag that was big enough to hold a bouquet gently in its folds without squeezing a petal.
When I arrived back home, I pulled out the bouquet from the plastic bag and found a suitable glass vase for it. Filled almost to the top with fresh water, I placed the bouquet in the formation it seemed to want to stay. Monochromatic beauty. White hydrangeas with five good-sized, cream-coloured, gently sweet-scented roses tucked in as well.
Inhaled deeply and slowly. Ahhhh…….the whisper of a joyful wedding wish.
