Have you ever heard of a Tussie Mussie?
I made three different looking tussie mussies and put them into small containers filled with water. Depending on the flowers used, they can stay fresh looking a long time out of water and that's why they make such a great little gift to give out. I also love the look of them on a dining room table because they're low and they look beautiful all lined up.
The tussie mussie below is larger than the other two, but the bouquets can be quite big (as big as a bridal bouquet).
If it still fits in your hand and is tight and compact, it's a tussie mussie. They can also be made out of just greenery, using herbs and fragrant leaves which I think would be gorgeous, especially for the holidays. Special thanks to Master Gardener Becky and thanks to her sister, Sally, who I learned later is an amazing mixed media artist who has artwork featured in many galleries. I've placed the link to her blogsite on her name. I'm sure I'll be making lots of Tussie Mussies in the future.
