Corned Beef Box with Spring Flowers DIY

Happy Monday! My husband has an antique corned beef box that I've had my eye on for some time, and this past weekend I decided to act upon my urge and put together a spring arrangement using it as the vessel. Old containers, like the vintage cans from last week, make for great looking arrangements with a bit of eclectic flair. One doesn't usually associate corned beef and flowers, but I rather like the unexpectedness. You'll notice that box is just for aesthetics, and a glass (or plastic) container/vase must be placed inside. tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

I mistakenly left out one of the ingredients in the overview shot - agonis (leaves) - but you'll see them make an appearance in these next few shots.

The white garden roses smell amazing, and I am enjoying this box in our breakfast room, where we spend most of our time.
