A few weekends ago,
This past weekend, I co-hosted a baby shower for one of my dearest girlfriends. It was a co-ed shower, so it was light on bottles & games, heavy on burger and beers. (We say b/c it was co-ed, but truth is we all prefer burgers to cucumber sandwiches…). But it still needed a dash of pretty, so Katy and I tackled the flowers.
If you have time, I love doing the flowers on your own — you get a lot more bang for your buck, and you would be surprised how easy it is! A few basic supplies (vases/glasses in several sizes and good shears are all I really need, but oasis, twine, tape, etc. can help), good tunes, lots of flowers, and you are on your way!
One little tip if you are making more than a couple arrangements — prep and separate all the flowers first, so once you start arranging, you don’t have to stop for leaves and thorns.
Do you like to do-it-yourself for floral arrangements?
What’s your limit — For the home? A small party? A wedding?
