Carnation Bouquet Makeover

Carnation bouquet makeover
I received this bouquet of carnations for my 32nd (augh!) birthday and saw potential.

After (Long) : All I did was pull out the filler plants. Already a million percent better.
After (Medium) : I cut down the stems and placed the flowers in a drinking glass. I find that using any glass or ceramic container from the kitchen is a huge improvement from the standard vase.
After (Mini) : I removed all of the short-stemmed flowers from the bouquet and placed them in a vintage etched drinking glass.

Easy peasy :)
