Creations, Bloomin’ Ball Jars

Today’s the day!


CC’s first Birthday party!


Roses are my weakness….I was only going to buy one bunch….

birthday banner and pink jars

but I was so torn…and CC only turns 1 once!


her birthday is really tomorrow

ribbon and rose jars

but I much prefer pink to all that St. Patrick’s Day green!

painted ribbon jars

Just a little spray paint,  in white, ballet slipper pink, and berry pink.  I used quart sized jars [Walmart $9.99 dozen]


Ribbon,  secured  with glue dots


Party ready!

The birthday girl has two hats to wear, a crown and a party hat.  A princess needs to have a change of outfit should she   yank it off her head   so desire

I will be sharing some more party details later this week, including an easy crown tutorial, a party bunting, and some Birthday and Easter chalkboard art

Flower tip:  I like to arrange  flowers 1-2 days before the event to give them a chance to open and be at their peak.   When I saw these roses at Costco 4 days before the party I flipped because they were exactly what I wanted.    I decided to see if they would last… I  stored them in a vase of water in my refrigerator for 3 days before cutting.  They held perfectly!  At Costco, roses are a bargain, always $16.99 for 2 dozen

Thanks so much for stopping by!

[I painted the ballerinas for CC’s birthday, shhhhhhh…..I haven’t given it to her yet!]
