Arranging Flowers: Vintage Camera Edition

For our "Through The Lens" theme I thought it might be interesting to incorporate a vintage camera into a flower arrangement.  With this Twin Lens Reflex camera, you look down into the viewer.  We were able to cut some floral foam to set on top of the viewer, held up by the metal flaps.  Secured with floral tape, the foam stays put when you poke your stems into it, creating a pretty display ... if I don't say so myself.  

Flowers used: Bells of Ireland (the green one); Ranunculus (the white ones)

This post is our first in a new column we'll do each month on flower arrangements.  Neither of us has any training in this area, but, well, what has that got to do with anything? The important thing is that we both believe that regularly treating yourself to fresh flowers is like buying chocolate.  You don't need it, but wait...actually, you do.   So, from now on, we're going to share our attempts at flower arrangements based on our theme for the month.  And if you are diggin' our theme (get it?  flowers?  digging?  gardening?)...anyway, if you are inspired by any of our themes and have arranged flowers accordingly, we'd LOVE to share your photos with other LYC readers!  (Just let us know in the comments section below).
