We needed 8 centerpieces for the tables at the staff party last weekend!
My budget for decor……basically $0….we wanted to spend our money on food!
What to do?
These little cuties were the perfect answer.
It just took a little planning ahead….
The wheat grass got planted in 8 pots of a similar color….I used greens and golds!
(Good thing I buy lots of pots at GoodWill)
The grass needs about a week in a sunny window to grow to the height of 4 inches.
I really splurged and bought a bunch of daisies at the grocery store for $7.99.
Normally….I think those bright-artificially dyed flowers are really ugly….
but for our “Taco Fiesta” theme the colors seemed just right.
The next step was tucking a 2 inch cube of floral foam in the center of the pots….
Then a little curling ribbon….
Here they are….waiting to go the party!!!
It is funny….I never have any pictures of the actual parties I go to…..maybe that is because I would rather BE at the party than take pictures….but then I am sad that I don’t have pictures.
I will try to get some from the people I saw running around with cameras….
Anyway….the food was great….
because we could use the budgeted dollars for that instead of decorations…!
AND….cheap looked pretty good don’t ya think?
Have a Great Day!
