I’ve been working on a few projects here and there, to get ready for Big Bear’s grandmother’s 80th birthday party. I’ve been put in charge of the party and I want it to be super special considering it’s a big mildstone birthday.
Last week, I worked on cupcake designs for the party, and decided on these Pastel Flower Cupcakes , and I love the fact that these flower decorations match them!
The party is a beach, ocean, pastel color, butterfly, bird them. Haha yes,it’s a lot, but those are her favorite things so I’m working them all in. I saw an idea similar to this on the web, but I think it looked like their version had a candle inside? I couldn’t really tell from the picture. I kinda used that idea and another I saw in a magazine of using flowers as favors , and attempted to turn it into a mini centerpieces for the tables.
These cost me roughly $1.50 each to make. I got a pack of flowers from Lowes for $1.25 (a pack of 6) , a bag of clothespin for $1.00 and the Tuna cans were around 60 cents each. Oh….and it took me a whole 2 minutes to make each one… ok maybe 1 minute and 10 seconds 😉
- 1 tuna can, empty and washed with label and top removed
- 1 or 2 flowers (the kind from the garden section, that are already rooted and blooming)
- 20 clothespins
