Flower Power

My Mom wanted to do some succulent planters of her own so we had a little afternoon crafting session this week. Not to be one left on the side line, I picked up some faux orchids this past weekend while out shopping with a girlfriend. I really think that succulents and orchids are the 2 easiest plants to get away with going the faux route. Gotta love not worrying about who’s gonna water your plants when you’re on holiday!
I decided to spiffy up my “trophies”.
 
Mid afternoon crafting at Mom’s.
I also did a mini project with the yellow bucket you (will see it in a post next week involving our laundry room which I’ve given a mini update to), but I thought that the trophies needed a little something to add some height to our kitchen.

She has been working on updating her kitchen seating area and once  I finish a dining room table for her I’ll give you all the details. It is looking really cute!
The trophies are real winners now! I did one big stem in the white one (found for $6.99 at Home Sense) and another smaller white stem ($7) in the silver trophy. The smaller one had 3 branches so I trimmed it down to look like 2 growing out of the dirt. The base plant for the bigger one was something I picked up years ago for another planter at Chintz & Co. (I think it was about $6)
The trophies also came from HomeSense a few weeks ago. They were each $16, a far cry from the cost of real antique versions!
 
I didn’t realize how much impact the height would have on the whole visual in the kitchen but it is simply amazing! I may have to lend them to lexington for a little while for the mantle because I could really see them looking stunning in there with the 12 ft ceilings.
What kinds of projects have been keeping you busy? I am always looking for a good time killer LOL.
