I called my florist yesterday to find out how much it would cost to order a few cherry blossom branches to make an arrangement. She told me that one branch, which comes 6 feet tall, will cost me around $20.00 for each branch. Crazy. Then she gave me a great idea: To buy the silk cherry branches from Michael’s and mix in a few long lasting greenery branches to make it look even more authentic. She sold me a few tree ferns and some other pretty greenery for only $2.00. Michael’s silk flowers were on sale for 40% off. I used five branches: You can use all kinds of flowers and be really creative! Do you think you will give this a try?
