Pitcher, Pitcher, Teapot

It's like Duck, Duck, Goose, for people who like dishes. I recently did ok at the GW.
Here is Pitcher, Pitcher, Teapot:

Here is what I have done with two of them so far.

The silver pitcher  was $3.99, and in great shape.

 It has a place to be engraved in the center, and cute little feet. I filled it with some blooms from the snowball bush.

This little wire teapot was $2.50. It was kinda grey metal, so I spray painted it black, and it gave me an excuse to buy a maiden hair fern to put in it, but it was too big. So I tried a votive. Any suggestions as what to do with this tea pot? 

This last pitcher says "Teleflora" on the bottom and was $.99. I haven't put anything in it yet, but looked up Teleflora bouquets online so I could see what they did.It had yellow roses, daisies, and Goldenrod. That is a WEED around here.  I think I'd be a little ticked to spend money on a nice bouquet and get goldenrod! This bouquet is too perfect looking for me. Any ideas?

Some days are good at the GW and some not so much. BUT it is only 3 block out of my way on my way home from school. Only takes about 5 minutes to run in and out!
