When we got home I couldn't find a small enough vase, so after I cut the stem I placed the rose in plastic water bottle. To class it up I tied the ribbon around the bottle. The cats love roses, too, so I set the makeshift vase on the fireplace mantel in the family room where they couldn't get to it. I admired it every time I went into the family room, and a couple of nights I remembered to bring it into the kitchen at and set it on the table at dinner time.
A week later it's still going strong.
