Cut Flowers ..... To Go

Just had to share with you this idea that came from my son -- and I think it's brilliant!!  When we met for Mother's Day he brought me cut flowers -- which was so nice, and made me smile ...... but ..... he knew I'd have to get them home and he brought a pitcher of water to keep them alive on the trip.  This turned out to be a brilliant idea, because ..... I could secure the pitcher by passing the seat belt right through the handle and it didnt budge an inch!!   I only kept an inch or so of water so there was no danger of it splashing and, as you can see - they made it home in perfect condition ...

I put the pitcher in the back seat

secured it with the seat belt - around the pitcher and through the handle ...

added the flowers - and drove home ...

Here they are, safe at home in a beautiful vase for me to enjoy!

So....... now I'm thinking ...... what else would transport better in a pitcher that can be secured and safe from spilling???    especially if your pitcher has a lid -- how about fruit salad?  
Cant wait to hear your ideas ....


  1. great idea Brenda!! thank you!!

  2. Brenda, brilliant idea, plus you have an extra pitcher! How about pasta salad? You could put a large baggie with some ice in it and set the pitcher in that bag then secure. Perhaps a towel under the bag in case it leaks. Just pour out the pasta salad to serve upon arrival. Joanne
