Cheap and Cheerful

50 pots to paint and plant

A budget of $100 for EVERYTHING

50 tea cups to find and 50 plates to set



50 butterflies to wrap around napkins

50 cupcakes to lovingly place



Tissue pom poms to make and hang






3 women who did it all



A tea party with good women and my lil one...


PRICELESS

It looks gorgeous!

And I did those hanging Martha Stewart puffs for a bridal shower. I LOVED them. They were a bit time consuming, but they really brought the room together.

Kristina- yeah they are time consuming but create a great effect to an ugly blah room. :)

Hey Emily - great ideas! I'm really impressed. I'll know where to come when my Emily gets married, (you've got a bit of time to plan)

You did an amazing job, especially with a limited budget. It sure looks like you had a successful activity. They're lucky to have you on the planning team.
