Saving the bouquet

Toss the bouquet?

Since Drew and I got married in 2010, my wedding bouquet has been hanging in a bag "drying" at my parent's house. I didn't know what to do with it. I absolutely loved my bouquet. 

So it was sad that it was just sitting in a bag. Then one day I was at my best friend Salena's house, and saw what she did with her bouquet from 2011. Her bouquet was in a jar from her grandmothers house sitting in her bedroom. I loved the idea. It was simple, contained, and displayed. So...I stole her idea. 

2 years later. 
I didn't have a jar from my grandmother's house, so instead I opted for a jar from Michael's

I filled the jar with all the wonderful flowers from the best day of my life. I was left with the ribbon which held my great-grandmothers pin on our wedding day, and was featured on all of my bridesmaid's bouquet. So I used it to decorate the top of the jar. 

Now I have a wonderful keepsake of my wedding bouquet that is displayed in our home. What did you do to save your flowers from that special day?
