Don't you wish some days could be spent like this?
Me too. But alas, I am hosting neighborhood bunco tonight so let the prepping, cooking, baking, and cleaning begin. Oh yes, and I guess I will take care of my kids in the middle of all that!
Our bunco group has the hostess supply two $5 gifts for two of the winners. I decided I would make a little something that would last in someone's home. I love house plants. They add color to a home, they are good for your home's air quality, and they bring the outdoors in. The more the merrier in my opinion.
I started with two terra cotta pots and two bases (about $2 each from Michael's with coupon). I also picked up some acrylic paint on sale for .77 in a bright, aqua blue. I painted the top rim of the pot and the base in the aqua and did the base in chalkboard paint.
I added an African Violet to each of the pots (2.98 each at Home Depot) and wrote "Bloom" and "Sprout" on each of them.
I then wrapped them in clear cellophane and added a fun, spring colored ribbon (both were $1 from Dollar Store). A little bit homemade, quick, inexpensive, and a gift that will last!
I also posted about another cute gift idea using a jade plant. Hope the winners like their gifts!!
