Concert, graduation and recital season has arrived. As a grandma of 15 (yes, 12 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren--mostly girls), we have a lot of celebrations year 'round. At the end of the school year, though, there are more than just a few.
This year we "escaped" graduations (I have no idea how THAT happened) but we do have several birthdays, a family reunion plus a school play (the Jungle Book), a piano recital, a dance recital and a gymnastics meet...all in just the next few days. Oh yes, and Father's Day nestled in the midst of it all. Busy, busy, busy!
THE SCHOOL PLAY: Instead of giving the girls whole bouquets, I decided to simply dress up a single carnation for each to give them after the performance of The Jungle Book. MacKenzie (age 7) was an elephant and Madalyn (age 6) played a wolf. Each of them did such a great job!
So, here is what they looked like...
simple and sweet...just like their lovely recipients.
The way I kept the flowers fresh was to wrap the stems in a piece of a damp paper towel and then some aluminum foil.
The flowers looked as nice hours later as when I first bought them.
Flowers aren't the only congratulations gifts you can give.
What do you like to do?
