Romantic Vignette with Roses

' We were out doing some shopping and the hubs saw these red roses and brought them to me asking "do you want these"?  
Of course I said yes!

 I decided to create a vignette with them on my game table in the living room.
The neck on the vase is narrow and tends to hold them in a very upright manner.
They are just starting to relax so I think in a few days they will be spectacular!

 I love this picture- she's tossing a rose to her lover who is down below on his horse.  I suspect she's bidding him farewell after an afternoon visit!

They came wrapped with some organdy fabric around them so I included it in the arrangement.  I tucked it in so it would rest on the ruffled edge of the vase.

With Valentine's Day coming it seemed appropriate to create a romantic vignette!
