Floral frogs were originally designed to be used in vases to make arranging flowers easier and to enhance the bouquet.
Ideas range from the truly functional use as a pen and pencil holder, to displaying vintage finds, to serving as place card holders for a festive dinner party. If you have always wanted to use place cards for a gathering you are hosting, but didn't want to make the investment in time or money, steal Whisper Wood Cottage's idea and use the back of old business cards or check out free place card templates online.

Floral frogs are abundant at estate and garage sales, Goodwill, thrift stores and your local floral shops and discount stores.
