I decided to paint it white so the details would pop more

Juicy Details

I made the ribbon “flower” poufs by looping ribbon over a wooden skewer [3 loops per pouf] and securing it with wire.  The pointed end of the skewer is perfect for poking it through the mesh to secure the pouf

  1. Jenna, I think all the snowbirds are very sorry that they left the south so early! We are still having snow and more predicted for Saturday. Your deck table is so tempting! I remember when you did the centerpiece and I love it. Perfect for a breezy seaside lunch. Your bucket of fun keeps amazing us too! What will be next? Linda

    Genius to repurpose your Easter sign Jenna and easier to store that way too! I thought flip flop weather had arrived early for us this year but alas Mother Nature has a few tricks up her sleeves! Enjoy your sun, sand and salt…preferably on the rim of a margarita glass 🙂

  9. Snow birds, ha ha! It’s been so long since I heard that term. It was probably when I lived in Fort myers, florida. Too funny! Of course if I came down south now, that term applies to me now…but that’s ok. I’d take it for the chance to sit at your lovely table and watch the boats go by!
