Just thought I would share a quick, easy and inexpensive decorating tip for Valentine’s Day! A parent gave a gift like this to a friend of mine back when she was teaching…and we have been using the idea ever since!
You’ll need any wide-mouth vase – or other cute container – and a separate container that will fit inside the first. I usually use a tall juice glass. Simply (loosely) stuff the glass with some paper towels and set it in the center of the vase. Carefully fill the vase with your favorite holiday candy. I, of course, use M&Ms but have seen conversation hearts – or even candy corn! When you get toward the top of the glass, you might need to hand place the candy so that it comes just to the top of the glass but doesn’t overfill into the vase. After all the candy is in place, gently remove the paper (it was just to keep candy from going into the glass), carefully fill the glass with water and add your favorite flowers! My flowers were a treat from my daughter – I think they are too pretty!
You can use this idea for any holiday really – it always looks cute – and, of course, it makes a sweet gift.
And, for those of you who played along…here are the answers from Tuesday’s quiz:
1 – D
2 – Bethlehem
3 – Blessed
4 – B
5 – pearls
6 – 12
7 – B
8 – laborers
9 – rock
10 – D
How did you do? Just for fun. Have even more fun this weekend! Eat LOTS of chocolate (especially DARK chocolate!!)
