as promised a quick update on the goings on with all things for "The Party".
After the Fathers buttonhole had been made (see previous post ) , it was full steam ahead with the bouquet for the Mother .
I toyed with the idea of whether it should be a spray or posie type of arrangement , and settled on a posie. I already had a picture in my head of what I wanted it to look like.
After a visit to the shops for some fabric & lace , and trying to track down some affordable vintage type jewellery for the flower centres, the creating began and of course with the anniversary celebrating 50 years of marriage the flowers were all made in cream, gold, yellow & ivory.
So without any more waffling from me here is the finished bouquet for my wonderful Mother , just hope she likes it .
It then dawned on me that I would have to put it into a presentation box of some sort , so I set about making something to house it in , and this is what I came up with
happy makings one and all
