I have a new craft to add to my list of ‘Crafts I’ve Tried’ – flower arranging! I can’t say I’d ever thought of having a go at it before. But the ship’s florists were running a class one rainy afternoon, and I thought I’d give it a try. I actually enjoyed it and (with a LITTLE help from the instructors) managed make a corsage for myself and a buttonhole for my husband:
During the class, I picked up a little tip that I thought I’d share with you. It’s the SECRET recipe for a MAGICAL stay-fresh-for-longer-and-smell-better spray! In a spray bottle, mix together some water, a bit of sugar and a bit of lemonade. Add a bit of your favourite perfume. Then spray it all over your beautiful flower arrangement. I can’t see WHY such a concoction would work but, strangely enough, it seemed to do the trick on my corsage and buttonhole – they lasted a whole week!
