Gifts

I made these flower arrangements for my sweet neighbors!  The red wooden boxes were purchased at Tuesday Morning in a set of three.  I found more red boxes at Marshall's, too.  I bought one bouquet of red roses and divided them amongst the boxes.  The greenery is from around my yard and along the side of the road!
To make these, put floral foam in the bottom of the box and use small water picks for the roses.  I purchased some at Hobby Lobby in the wedding section.  The cost of this gift is minimal and they were fun to make!
This miniature poinsettia in the tea cup was a hostess gift.  I find pretty tea cups throughout the year and use them for gifts.  I believe this one came from TJMaxx.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Merry Christmas!

Wow. These are beautiful! I love how you used a teacup here. I may have to remember this if I can. (Remember, that is.) :o)

I absolutely love this idea Christie! It is such a nice change from giving people treats and something that will probably last longer than cookies! LOL! You are so creative and I'm going to be trying my hand at this next year. Thanks for the great inspiration as always!

I really love all the arrangements, but my favorite is that tea cup poinsettia. I need to keep my eyes open for great teacups to use this year. That's a great idea.

What a beautiful arrangement and a sweet thing to do for your neighbors. I usually bake cookies and breads for the neighbors but I think I will borrow your idea! This is really nice and something different.

Wonderful gift ideas and lovely arrangements. I often buy those travel candles in a tin container with a lid...they fit perfectly into the odd cup and saucer, and they make a charming gift for friends. I pick up cups and saucers throughout the year, too. Thank you for sharing your charming designs. Happy New Year! Cherry Kay
