Using What's Laying Around & Birthday Roses...

Yesterday was my birthday.  (I apparently have entered middle age realm - 
eeks!! - how did that happen?).  I received a lovely bouquet of
 pink roses and decided to play with them a bit.

 All these items were just randomly nearby - so I
 kinda used what was within easy reach...
 The 25 cent scarf I wore here - but now it will serve as a table runner.
 My trencher (as I'm seeing them called) or faux wooden dough bowl 
cost me $5 recently from a going out of business shop.  
I filled it will some 'silver' fruit I picked up (also recently - $2.50 ea),
  faux geraniums (used here)...
 ...divided the roses into 3 aqua Mason jars - 1 quart and 2 pint sized - 
and I think it's  just fine.  A nice Spring centerpiece!
