Uneven Numbers in Floral Arrangements..............

When I was younger, if my Mom got flowers, she always took one out and put it in a brandy snifter. She said it was for luck. What I found out later on was; an even number of flowers in an arrangement is for funerals and is considered unlucky in a vase. So if you take one out of your bouquet, it remains good luck for you.
This is said to have originated in Russia, and apparently the custom was brought to the New World by immigrants. I received this lovely bouquet for my birthday last year and it had 11 flowers. So apparently the florist believed in the custom. Who knew?
Till next time........
