I love fresh flowers! Having them in my house makes me sooooo happy! And now that all the spring flowers are blooming, I thought I'd make a pretty vase so I can have a great way to display them (like the tulips that are exploding around me). The vase was so simple to do, it took about 15 minutes, and I love how it turns out!
TIP 1 -- I had to start with the most mouth-watering dish... pulled pork sandwiches with Asian slaw. Since our grill still isn't hooked up, I wanted to come up with an alternative to typical July 4th BBQ food that was equally fun and equally delicious. That's why I thought of pulled pork! Who doesn't like pulled pork?! :)
You will find the recipes at the end of the post. The pork and slaw are both very easy to make, but the pork does take 6-8 hours to cook, so plan ahead if you're considering it.
The tutorial comes with the paper flower garland templates and instructions. You just need to download the templates, cut out the flowers, attach the flowers to baker's twine using an embroidery needle, and tie the twine to a pretty branch.
How great would this paper rose wreath look greeting your guests at your next birthday, shower, or Valentine's Day party?
This tutorial from Sandi at I'm a Yarner is so easy but definitely takes some time. So if you've got some Glee to catch up on, it might be worth doing.
Ivona from Sugarsticks Parties created these adorable party printables with a little girls' tea party in mind.
But they're so pretty and versatile, they could be used so many types of celebrations -- a garden party, a birthday party, a Mother's Day brunch. I just love all the sweet flowers!
How beautiful is this ruffle cake Betheny T made for her daughter Alice's 1st Birthday. What I love the most are those magnificent gumpaste flowers. Wow, takes the cake to a whole new level, doesn't it?
Well, here's a tutorial Betheny put together showing how she made those beautiful flowers... Thank you, Betheny!
I was just in my garden, and it inspired me to post these. How sweet would these be as favors...
