Untraditional Mothers Day…

29 Apr

Ever spend $70+ on flowers for a loved one, only to see them in the trash less than 2 weeks later. This year I am saving my money and putting more thought into my Mothers Day presents. Planning on making my mother a beautiful oversized bouquet of Poppies this year! Found these cute tutorials on Marth Stewarts website.

Giant Paper Poppies

also thought these Paper Dogwood branches were very sweet!

You can pick up an oversized vase just about anywhere (Target, TJ Maxx, Marshalls..etc.) for less than $25. Fill one up with a large bunch of either of these sweet paper concoctions and you have a gift that will be sure to leave a lasting impression on your ever so deserving Mother!
