Goodbye V-Day, Hello Spring!

I promise, these will be my last words regarding this year's Valentine Banquet. It will be starting at about this time tomorrow evening, and I'm so excited about how everything has come together.

Remember when I said that we just needed fresh flowers to finish the decorating?

Well, I was struck with a brilliant idea.

Why not just stick the krispie pops in the vases and save $20 worth of flowers?!

And that is just what I did. Aren't they cute?!

Those were just to make you drool.

Now, on to Spring! I always love the season we are in, and I'm always eager to welcome the next one in when it's time. It's a little bit early to be thinking about spring, but I wanted to switch out my Valentine wreath, and we don't really celebrate St. Patrick's Day. So, spring wreath it is!

I found a wreath in really great shape at a thrift store last week.

I cut our monogram out of a piece of cardboard box...

... and then I wrapped it with leftover yarn so the back and sides of the finished product wouldn't be exposed.

I hot glued moss to the front of the monogram and then glued it to the wreath. I added a little bird's nest I picked up somewhere last year and some gorgeous flowers I found here (more on that soon).

This may be the easiest and quickest wreath I've made yet!
