Festive Flair Events

Blast from the Past!

Check out this post from last year! Enjoy!

In my last post, I shared an idea on how to add a little flair to graduation announcements. Since we’re still in the graduation season I wanted to share the flair you can add to your favorite grad’s party table decorations. There are many graduations at this time of the year but when planning or participating in multiple celebrations you don’t have to break the bank.

Here is a nifty idea that you can use when giving a grad gift or making a centerpiece….

Beautiful, simple and affordable!

To put this together:

    1. Visit the after-market store in your area and purchase a vase for a $1.00
    2. Swing by your local craft store and pick up a tassel and ribbon in the graduate’s colors. $3.00
    3. Grab flowers from your garden or the local florist in the colors that match the ribbon. $3.00
    4. Add sparkling water to the flowers. (It contains many micro-organisms and other nutrients which will preserve the flowers better than normal tap water) $1.00 

So for under $10.00 you can give a nice, affordable, and personalized gift to the graduate in your life!  If you want to take this idea a step further you can buy a charger or dish to sit your gift on and add colored glass pebbles to give a pop of color at the base of the gift.

I look forward to hearing your ideas and/or comments. Have a great weekend and see next Friday!
