west elm spring social and paper flowers

If you’ve followed my blog for a while you know I love flowers.

I’ve made button flowers, love sunflowers, have made rose hairclips, and, most recently, made paper flowers for Lorelai’s room.

So, this event at West Elm is right up my alley…

bloom where you’re planted

I got an idea for the teachers gifts and I ran with it.

This is what I came up with…

I knew I wanted to use one of the flower crafts that were posted during flower week at jones design company.

I decided to try the button flowers.

I found some adorable Mary Engelbreit mini watering cans at Michael’s that were 50% off.

I put together the button flowers using buttons that I also found a Michael’s for about $6 for a bag that made a ton of flowers.

I put them in the mini watering cans (using florist foam, not playdough…although the thought did cross my mind).

Today we took a trip to Al’s Garden Center and bought gift cards.

I wrote a note to each teacher thanking them for helping the little guy grow and bloom this year.


home is…a fun, easy, creative gift for the people who help my little guy bloom where he is planted.
