Hi Everyone, I am back!
It feels like it has been months since I last blogged even though it has only been a few weeks. I have been so busy lately with the bridal shower that I haven’t had time to blog. Now that it has past, I have been writing thank yous. I am still not done yet but it has been so long and I have missed blogging!
I really want to do a Bridal Shower round up but before I can do that I want to share a few more things we have made!
You have already seen my Tea Cup Candles that were our favors, but I haven’t shared our Teapot Centerpieces!!
While my mother and I were thrift store shopping, we were looking for teapots too. I must say, these are extremely hard to find! But we found 11 and that was perfect because we had 9 tables!
We set our Tea Cup Candles around the teapots so they both ended up being part of our centerpieces!
These were really easy to make too!
We went to Lowe’s 3 weeks before the shower to buy the flowers. We bought ones that were just budding or had just bloomed. That way they would be just blooming and not dying by the day of the bridal shower.
We happened to buy a few that were already in bloom and we actually couldn’t use them . Mom planted them in her flower bed though so it was okay.
|Some of the smaller flowers were for the teapots!|
The week before the shower, we planted them in the teapots to let them adapt to their new pot.
We have a lot of deer and we didn’t want them to eat our plants so we did pull them inside every night. We weren’t taking that risk! We also watered them at least twice a day. These plants were NOT dying on our watch!
I ended up giving them away to the oldest person at each table; everyone was so chatty after that! I heard comments like “Oh now we have to tell each other our age *giggle giggle*” and “Yes! That’s me!”.
So everyone loved it! Best part was we left the tags in them so people knew what they were and they could plant them in their garden! We also gave them the lids so not only did they have cute flowers but if they washed the teapot, they had a cute teapot too that wasn’t going to die.
There was only one left and it was my favorite pot with my favorite flower, what a wonderful coincidence I gladly kept it for myself!
Next week I am going to share are our Thank You cards Mother and I made, make sure you check back next week!
