I have the prettiest table right now – I want you all to come over so you can see my tulips in person – so bright and cheery!! they are PERFECT for my Valentine’s Decor.
(um, just ignore the dust on the table…..obviously this is the “fancy” table and it doesn’t get daily use – it’s mainly there to look pretty)
So, how did this all come about….well, I first grabbed some cut tulips at the grocery store while I was there anyway to pick up milk and bread – so convenient. I also grabbed some candy because I was going to do that thing where you put a smaller vase inside a big vase, put the flowers in the small vase, and then fill the big void between vases with candy – but it turns out I didn’t have a big vase like I thought. So it was brainstorming time. I found a bunch of glass milk jars from my sister-in-law and an idea started forming…
I thought they would all line up in a box, so I needed Trevor to cut some boards and slap together a rustic wooden box. I was thinking this was a 5 minute project. He informed me otherwise and went about figuring out an alternative (you can read about his thoughts HERE) and next thing I know he’s digging old boxes and oatmeal containers out of the recycling bin and making way for me to use some awesome wooden boxes from his garage – score!
So I put 2 jars in each box and filled them with candy – – perfect:
And now the tulips are the perfect touch – –
