Play: Mother’s Day Celebration Centerpiece
Looking for a centerpiece for an upcoming Mother’s Day Celebration?
Earlier this year, I used ideas from several sources and put together this centerpiece for a PhD Residency Dinner. You likes?
It’s fairly easy (and cheap!) to make.
a. First, Jake and I made origami flowers (so technically they aren’t origami because they use more than one piece of paper. But, I’d say they are origami-ish, yes?) using this tutorial.
b. Then, we made some paper flowers out of tissue paper using these guidelines.
c. I bought some large paper doilies, wine glasses, small candles, tealight candles, and mini candle vases and put it all together.
It was nice to be able to have all the parts of the centerpiece ready ahead of time, making the set-up easier. And while I really enjoy fresh flowers, I also enjoyed the different-ness of this set-up. May this inspire you this mother’s day/spring season!
p.s. a few days after the dinner, I came across this in the living room. I guess they make for great toys too!
