Flowers.

My house has been filled with these all week. Beautiful, amazing and handmade. Every single one. Hundreds and hundreds--no kidding. The various shades of pink and orange are even more beautiful in person. Here they are on the kitchen counter and island...Aren't they something? Thank God for crafty friends who share. Margaret and Jen are amazing, and I really can't express my gratitude. These were used for a big event at the Art Museum last week, and they were kind enough to lend these to me for my daughter's party this weekend. The concept came directly from the one and only--Martha. The original tissue paper kit was purchased, and they took that concept and ran with it. You can't really tell in the photos, but the larger flowers are a foot in diameter.
And they're filling my dining room too...

They took heavy glass vases and wrapped them in vellum. And the coolest trick--they purchased the battery powered tea lights and put them in the vases, so they all shimmer and glow!! Totally breathtaking...

You gals rock. Thank you, thank you!

And since we're on the topic, check this out for a cute flower tutorial too. She does really crafty and creative things with flowers...

Have a super weekend!

I did those fantastic flowers and the large ones for my sister-in-law's baby shower I hosted last year. They are such pretty shades and look so very pretty all over a room. That is definitely way more of what I did. I hope your daughter has a wonderful party!!!
