I do like real flowers the best but fake flowers have a place. One night when I had twitchy fingers I made a load of them! Red poppies and pink peonies. The cup and saucer was a c.shop find for 75p which was a bargain, its covered in pink roses. The glass handbag was from TKmax (think they also sell them in Home Sense) and the red vase was a present from our g'daughter for our ruby anniversary.
They are made out of tissue paper and fill a gap while the real flowers grow!
