my friend delivered these from her own garden. She had always delivered flowers in vases, but everyone was wishing to return the vases. She no delivers flowers in a can, covered in fabric & with a rubber band or a ribbon, so there is now reason to return anything…except the can to be recycled. I love this idea. Another great idea is to go to the dollar tree & buy a few plain vases for just such a purpose. My friend wanted to make clear that is a gift.
