So.. you say you want flowers but don't have the cash and even if you did, they'd just die?
Introducing the "forever bouquet".
from the site:
THE FOREVER BOUQUET - a kit which contains one dozen colorful paper flowers (ready to be cut), along with pre-cut wire and a pop-out vase. all you need to do is cut out your flowers of choice, tape wire onto the back for support and shaping, and pop out the vase. then, arrange your bouquet and present to the object of your affections for optimal enjoyment. you'll have "freshly cut" flowers that will never need sun or water! and in this economy, the thought REALLY DOES count!!
Funky and interesting, huh?
