world's tiniest flower arrangement

My husband was sweet enough to bring me flowers the other day. They were Celosia to be exact:

(side note: I finally figured out the name of these flowers by searching for “velvet brain flowers”. I love the internet.)

In the process of putting these flowers in a vase, I had to snip off a bunch of little flowery sprouts from the lower ends of the stems. I know this is pretty standard when arranging flowers, and I think most people just toss them. It sort of breaks my heart to throw away flowers though, even if they’re tiny. So I pulled this little elephant-shaped milk pitcher out of the cupboard and made a teeny tiny arrangement.

I think it’s pretty cute for a little bunch of trash!
