Floral arrangement - White Roses and Wild Blooms

Here I will take some roses that are a little past their prime and show you how good we can make them look! 
Roses are typically very expensive and I couldn't believe these white roses were on sale for a dollar!  They looked  several days old due to some brown petals (which I can peel off), but were still good.  So, I decided to go ahead and bring them home and see what kind of flower arrangements I could come up with.  To preserve the colors and longevity of these white roses, I used about 1 tsp of clorox diluted in water.
We also have a chokecherry tree with vibrant green blossoms (when in prime)  that are so dainty and cute that I wanted to capture before it becomes full blown leaves. 

Here are the variations of my designs:
 Design 1

This next floral design required some tools to make the arch.

Design 2- Arch 1
Design 3 - Arch 2

Design 4 - Arch 3

Design 5 -  with chokecherry blossoms only
