The inspiration for this floral arrangement came from finding a decorative gift box from a local discount home goods store. The color of the box was pink, green and white so I lined the box with cellophane and grocery store plastic bags and filled with the same color of flowers to match the box. I incorporated the lid of the box into the design by resting the edge of the filled box on the lip of the lid and finishing off the lid with a white organza ribbon.
