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!
So pretty and Springlike! Yes, please bring on Spring, lol!
Beautiful! Whatever are they going to do without you when you retire??
Amazingly cheap centerpieces, even if you had to buy the pots it would still be inexpensive. Very nice!
Mary- I think those centerpieces looked amazing AND the price was just right! xo Diana
Those are so pretty! I can't wait until spring!
Oh my goodness, I have to do this for Easter! They look perfect for your theme… and anyone can do this with some planning ahead! GREAT JOB and thanks for sharing the idea!!! jules
