BFF Open House #103 : It Must Be A Flower Thing Edition

The Answer Is Chocolate

Whew. I'm so so glad it's almost Friday! I still can't believe it's May already and that Mother's Day is two weeks away and will be here in a blink. Let's check out some of the ideas that were shared last week that would make great ways to celebrate the Moms in our lives. I didn't intentionally hone in on floral projects but they jumped out at me. 


Would you ever guess that these lovely water lilies from Bliss Bloom Blog started out as milk jugs? Anyone can have a garden water feature with this idea. 



Sweet Malia from Yesterday on Tuesday is sharing these pretty Mother's Day printables done for her by Free Pretty Things For You. Ready, print, use! 


The always talented Aimee from Twigg Studios has a tutorial to make these beautiful ( and realistic) looking paper anemones. What mom wouldn't love a bouquet of these?


I'm always intrigued by what Mich in LA sees when she looks at things. Some people would see fonts in the font stencils she used to make this storage jar. Mich saw flowers. 


While these aren't flowers, you know I have to have a chocolate feature and with Cinco de Mayo on Sunday, I thought these Shortbread Dulce De Leche Bars from Karyn at Pint Sized Baker were "perfecto". 

Now let's get to this week's party! Welcome if it's your first time here. Welcome back if you're returning. Thank you either way for partying with me!
