Don brings home roses most every Erev Shabbos (Shabbos eve). I try to find different ways to arrange the roses every Friday so that the Shabbos table setup is unique.

I love the flexibility of moving the arrangements into different rooms and setting them up differently for each part of Shabbos.

I snipped some branches off one of the magnolia trees to use in the largest arrangement. I re-purposed some leaves from an older arrangement to use in the bud vase.
