Granny's Funeral Flowers

Well, Granny's been gone since November 1, 2011 and I've finally gotten the notion to make these flower arrangements from her beautiful funeral flowers sent by all of her family and friends. I've never dried flowers before, this was my first try!  I collected so many from the graveside, they were all so gorgeous I couldn't bare to let them go to waste so I brought them all home with me not really sure of what I was going to do with them.  I didn't know which ones would dry nice and which ones wouldn't.  Now that it's done, I can tell you that lilies, daisies, and hydrangeas don't save at all.  But the rest of these did quite nice.  And I was really happy they kept their beautiful color! 
I went to Hobby Lobby while their pottery/vases were 50% off!! Each of these vases ended up being less than $10 each!! Great deal.  I also got 3 of those green foam blocks.
Yesterday, I thought it was time.  I wanted to make something really pretty in remembrance of my Granny.  I made one for myself, one for my sister and one for my Mom.  I just began clipping the stems and sticking them into the foam.  I had no plan or layout, its' all just very random.  I just kept sticking and sticking anywhere I saw a empty spot.  I even used some of the baby's breath and tinier little delicate flowers that all dried, surprisingly, very nicely!
So Mom and Laura, since this is your first time seeing all the flowers I saved... I hope you like them!  I'll get these to you soon!  Click photos to enlarge!
