My husband gave me a dozen red roses for my birthday, and after I enjoyed them for a few days, I smashed them into a scarf:

I also got a mixed bouquet.  I wish I had taken a picture, but I didn't.  The bouquet consisted of purple daisies (I think they were dyed - that is the brilliant pinks at the ends of the scarf),pink carnations, white chrysanthemums, and a yellow rose.
I arranged them, and then smashed them!

Now I can have my birthday flowers forever!
