centerpiece and favor

I must confess I'm not a big fan of felt. It has always looked kinda cheap to me. BUT I must also confess I LOVE these felt flowers!!!! I'm sorry I can't remember where I originally saw them to give credit but oh my heck! SO cute. I also have to say I love the fabric button maker I invested in to make the centers for these flowers. This is what the girls get to take home from the Mother/Daughter Activity I'm planning. The idea is they take a picture with their mom in a "photo booth" I'll have set up and then print the pictures out there so that they can add them to the frames to take home. I'm also using the empty frames for the center pieces on the tables. I'm loving h0w they're coming along so far!

The frames I got from the dollar store and primed and spray painted. I found the button maker at Hobby Lobby and used random fabric I had on hand. Felt, well you can find felt almost anywhere, I found mine at Michaels.

prep & gather

I've been out gathering things and finding inspiration. I found these beauties at my local DI. I like the shape of the smaller and the detail on the larger frame and knew these would be perfect.
I'm still on the hunt for at least another two frames but this was a great start.

The colors I'm using are teal, lime, white and brown. I LOVE this frame that I got at Hobby Lobby, (so much so I got it in black as well). I'll be using it on the table in the hall with a Welcome sign in side. The small stand I made from a candlestick and a candle plate from the dollar store, and the large cake stand I found at HomeGoods, LOVE that place!!!

For the centerpieces on the tables I'm growing grass in those white buckets, which I found in the dollar bins at Target. They're coming along great and will be so cute. I'll change out the white ribbon for either brown, teal, or lime. The candlestick is something I have in my bedroom that I found at Real Deals. I think I'll use it one the welcome table with a teal tissue pom on top.

I'm so excited to put this all together but still have LOTS of work to do. I'm gathering tissue to make my poms from and fabric for flowers and small frames for the girls to take but it's been so fun planning.

More to come!!

Picture Perfect in the works

I am SO excited to have some kind of entertaining in the works again. This time it's a Mother/daughter activity for Young Woman's. The plan is for a taco salad bar and chips and salsa for the dinner and then play the Newly Wed game with adapted questions for the mothers and daughters.

I've already thought up the color scheme I want to use and a "theme" to go with it. It's going to be a "Picture Perfect" night. I've had this image in my head since I saw it back in February on Hostess with the Mostess.

I'm going to use frames on the table that I've found at DI and painted white and teal. As well as having one to use in a photo booth that the mom's and their daughters can use to take a picture to take home.

I can't seem to fall asleep at night with ideas running through my mind. I'm so excited to be planning again!!!

I'll post as I develop more ideas. : )
