Emergency Vase

Several friends are coming for lunch at my place today, so I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things including some flowers to brighten up the dining table.
Boy, now come to think of it, I don't have any vase to put the flowers in. So what's a panicky but frugal & creative (ahem) gal to do? Get an emergency vase.

After some digging around in the kitchen cupboard, I finally decide that this free container from Oreo will do.
Fill the container with water, cut the flower stems, put the lovelies in, arrange some colorful books in the book basket (also free, it came as an office Christmas gift basket), and voila!
Come over, honored guests!

I do this all the time - usually with jam jars. They actually look quite nice as flower vases :D
