When I was doing daily deliveries, the holidays were always so crazy to keep up with. It's like, why are we talking about Thanksgiving in August, and Christmas in September?!?! It makes you want to scream. I do however miss talking to customers, and reading their card messages (Man, have I heard everything. The apologies are always the best. Bud, you're a little too late), and working with flowers all the time. As soon as Flour LA opens officially a retail location, I will be back in the craziness that is service, product, and retail. So, for Halloween and Christmas I did candy filled arrangements. The only difference is candy (switch to green/red peanut m&m's and similar flowers, or blue/white if you're celebrating Hannukah) and flower combo. Jelly beans also work well. So here's an arrangement that was ordered a lot, and that you can make at home.
Cut the bouquet short. Insert the smaller vase into the larger one. Pour the candy between the two vases so that the inner vase stays centered. Fill the inner vase with water. Place bouquet inside. Voila!
