I saw this done at a baby shower today! It turned out great and everyone thought it was pretty neat. After a while, you'll be able to make the diaper cake without the glue since double sided tape is better.

Flower arrangements: How to create a fall flower arrangement

HowdiniGuru | December 04, 2008

Bring the reds and oranges of autumn inside to create a beautiful fall arrangement. Floral and interior designer Rebecca Cole makes her harvest arrangement using branches and flowers.

How to create beautiful fall flower arrangements

Here's some ideas from floral and interior designer Rebecca Cole for turning branch arrangements into big and beautiful flower arrangements for a buffet or entryway:

1. Start by adding the tallest and most dramatic flowers. Delphiniums are a great choice. First, take off all the leaves on the stem so the water will reach the bud better and keep the flower lasting longer.

2. Cut the stem with a paring or pocket knife at a diagonal before placing the flower into your floral arrangement. You want the most beautiful part of the flower to be at eye level, so make sure the flower stem isn't too long.

3. Remember that the branches should be the tallest thing in the arrangement, taller than the flowers because that's how they naturally grow outdoors.

4. Add a second kind of flower to the arrangement: a less expensive lisianthus is complimentary to the delphinium. Again, remove any leaves on the stem and cut at a diagonal before arranging.

5. Next, add a kale to the arrangement. It's actually a vegetable, but opens up like a flower when you open up the head. Remove the leaves from the stem and cut at a diagonal. The kale stem is very thick so a paring knife should be used.

6. Finally, a flower with a smaller head creates a nice contrast to the big kale, long delphinium, and lazy lisianthus. The small petals of a carnation will create that extra little pop.

These floral arrangements should be about 5 feet tall from the bottom of the vase to the tops of the branches and will last about a week.

Flower Arrangements: Using Vase Filler to Create the Perfect Floral Cent...

PotteryBarn | September 15, 2010

Learn how to create a simple flower arrangement with Pottery Barn Floral Designer, Nico De Swert. All you will need to create this floral arrangement is a flower vase, river rock vase filler, water, and hyacinth flowers.

Start by taking the flowers out of the container, rinse off the dirt, and take the bulbs apart. Trim the roots of the bulbs to about 1 inch long. Dump one bag of vase filler into the vase, and place the hyacinth bulbs on top. Add in your second bag of vase filler to keep the bulbs from falling over. Pour in a little bit of water, and your flower arrangement is done!

This is a beautiful, but inexpensive arrangement that makes for a great floral centerpiece. Flower arranging is a great way to bring nature into your home.

Find vases, botanicals, and vase fillers on Pottery Barn's website:

Flower Arrangements: How to Create a Flower Bouquet | Pottery Barn

PotteryBarn | September 20, 2010

Pottery Barn Style Expert, Nico De Swert, shows us six basic flower arrangements that make simple, affordable flowers look stunning and sophisticated. These flower bouquets and centerpiece ideas can be created with fresh or artificial foliage.

1) To add texture and structure, mix some left over flower stems in with your floral arrangement.

2) Create a terrarium using one of Pottery Barn's vintage pickling jars. Terrarium plants are very easy to maintain.

3) Learn how to make a hand-tied flower bouquet with these simple steps. Arrange your flowers by twisting the stems in the same direction at a 45° angle. When you reach the desired size of your flower bouquet, tie the stems together, and drop them in a large vase.

4) For unique floral centerpieces, ground candles with floral foam and surround them with real or artificial flowers.

5) If you are creating a hydrangea flower arrangement, keep in mind that they need a lot of water. A great way to preserve hydrangea flowers is to cut the stems close to the flower and float or submerge them in a vase.

6) Add liveliness to any artificial flower arrangements by mixing real foliage in with the fake flowers.

How To Make a Shot Glass Out Of Ice

The coolest way to do a shot? Drink it from a glass made of ice.

To complete this How-To you will need:

One three-ounce plastic cup
One nine-ounce plastic cup
Duct tape

Warning: Don't drink unless you're of legal age. Drink responsibly, and never drink and drive.

Step 1: Fill a large cup

Fill a nine-ounce plastic cup about one third full with water.

Step 2: Fill a small cup

Place a three-ounce plastic cup in the larger cup. Adjust the position of both cups until the smaller cup is floating on an even level with the rim of the larger cup.

Tip: When serving liquor, keep in mind that your ice shot glass will be twice as big as the average shot glass.

Step 3: Secure with duct tape

Place duct tape across the top of the two cups so the small one stays put in the center of the larger cup.

Step 4: Place in freezer

Place the cups in the freezer until the water is frozen, about four hours.

Step 5: Pop it out

Pull the small cup out of the large cup, then run the outside of the large cup under warm water until you can pop the shot glass free.
