haha.. I kind of did that same thing last year. The pitchers lasted a whole day..
Lovely colour combos Elgecko. The white flowers, with the red roses, and the red & white Sarras! Perfect!
@Mass: Yeah, they don't last all that long. :P

I let my cut pitchers sit in about an inch of distilled water while they dry, in a high humidity area. They retain most of their color and shape that way. Simple and easy. Nice vase arrangement!
