We hosted a birthday party last weekend at my house and in addition to all of the traditional birthday elements (balloons, cake, candles), I wanted to add a few touches around the house to make it look pretty.
Little flower arrangements make me happy and I lucked out when I found a bundle of Snow White Cremon (a Dutch version of a Football Mum) in the grocery store floral department, marked down to $2 for the bunch! Aren't they perfect?
I hung them on the knob of the open china cabinet in my family room, in a clear glass vase. The vase is neat because it has a small hole in the glass near the top that you can thread a ribbon through and hang it. You can see a similar vase here. I own this type of vase in several styles (test tube, tear drop) and I love how they allow me to hang flowers on the wall or furniture. I highly recommend getting one for yourself - they are less than $5 and make quite a statement.
Beauty on a budget - another type of delight!
