Table Decor

Yesterday, I helped my Mom and an Aunt set their tables for a special Tea at their church. I made the floral centerpieces, Petite Purse party favors and some butterfly favors. Unfortunately, not only is the Flower, Daisies #2 Bigz Die that I used for the flowers on the Retired Accessories list posted this week but it has also already sold out :( I hope you already have one in your stash or can find one because these were really fun to make and more than one person thought they were real!

After seeing Becky Roberts' beautiful arrangement, I used the directions found here to make the regular daisies. The tutorial for the gerbera daisies is here
The Petite Purse die is available through tomorrow as part of the Summer Smooches pre-order and then will return in the new Annual Catalog on June 1st. I used paper from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper package available in the Occassions Mini Catalog through tomorrow only! I added a layer of Blushing Bride card stock (also now sold out) punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch to the handle before attaching it to the purse with Silver Mini Brads. The Regal Rose flower made with all three layers of the Boho Blossoms punch is also attached with a Silver Mini Brad. There are chocolates inside of course.
See the butterfly? I used the tutorial found here to create these beauties. You will need the Mixed Bunch stamp set and Blossom punch found on page 17 of the Occasions Mini Catalog to make some for your table. So fun!

This is the second arrangement of flowers for the table Aunt Sally set.
Tomorrow is the final day to order from the Occasions Mini Catalog and Summer Smooches pre-order suite and as noted above items are already disappearing from the retired accessories list so TODAY is a great day to click here and go shopping!
