Simple Flower Arranging

Browsing through Apartment Therapy, I stumbled across a few posts about simple flower arrangements. Some suggestions include breaking up a bouquet into a cluster of different bud vases at different heights and using bowls to float flowers inside. One of the more clever suggestions comes from Martha Stewart (of course!) - she suggests using a toothbrush holder as a vase. Put some water into the holder and then fill each of the holes with one or two stems of your favorite flower! Flickr member Saucy Dragonfly says she does this all the time and suggests TJ Maxx and Marshalls as places to find some. Below is one of her toothbrush flower arrangements featuring alstroemeria! Check out her blog too!
