First off, thank you to everyone who commented about the invitations. Thank you for all your support! I just reviewed the proof for the invites. They'll be mailed to me in few days!
So I started my next DIY project. Flower buckets for the centerpieces. Honestly I wasn't sure if I could do this. I've never done flower arranging. I had no idea what to expect.
I went to Joann's and bought a shitload of fake flowers and green floral foam. I cut the foam and fit to the inside of the buckets. Then stuck the flowers in. Voila!
The first bucket is cream Ranunculus (sadly the closest I might come to ranuculus since they are out of season in July), light green hydrangeas (the fresh ones are too fragile for bouquets says the florist) in the tall bucket, and the pussy willows in the last bucket. I need one more bunch in the ranunculus bucket and one more bunch in the hydrangea bucket. Tai was pretty impressed. He thought they were real.
I have some more flowers but the buckets I have aren't tall enough. So I have to cut down the flowers. I broke my favorite wire cutters trying to cut the stems. Dad has heavy duty cutters he'll loan me.
So this DIY project does not have me in fits. I think I can do this one. Yeah me!
