~Flower Power~








Here are a few floral elements I put together for Mother's Day. I've never done the first one, but I use that centerpiece a lot. I made it out of wood I took off an old garden palette. I then burned it a little with a creme brûlée torch. I placed ramekins with water inside and did a scotch tape grid on the top of the ramekin so the flowers had little sections. The tape grid makes a BIG difference and removes all frustration of trying to get flowers to stay in one section.

The last two were just simple thrown together things. Both vases were from Target from the last year. The white trophy vase was $5 and the gold studded one was $3. I love Gladiolus because they are tall, gorgeous and inexpensive. Ralph's usually has them when they are in season for $2 a bunch. They add height and color to whatever space they are used in and last a good while if you change the water and cut them right. They are perfect in an entryway!
