For Moms Who Love Their Caffeine:



For this first gift idea we’re creating a flower arrangement in a cute coffee mug and attaching a gift card to the handle with a ribbon! I love this cup, and this one, oh and this one is so cute or swing by your local store.


How to:
  1. Soak flower foam for a 1-5 minutes. Fill your sink with water and set the foam in the water. The foam will sink when it’s absorbed enough water.

  2. Cut the foam to fit in the mug.

  3. Fill the mug partially full with water, but not to the top.

  4. Add greenery. You’ll want to create a base of greenery throughout the mug.

  5. Add your largest flower. Add several of your medium/large flower to the mug.

  6. Add the smaller flower in the remaining gaps.

  7. Punch hole in the gift card or gift card envelope

  8. Wrap ribbon through the hole in the card or envelope and around the handle, tie into a bow.



For Moms Who Set Alarms For Wine O'clock:



If your mom blossoms when the wine comes out, then making a darling arrangement in a wine glass is the perfect sweet gift. Pair this with her favorite wine and you’ll be the apple of her eye.


How to:
  1. Soak flower foam for a 1-5 minutes. Fill your sink with water and set the foam in the water. The foam will sink when it’s absorbed enough water.

  2. Take large greenery petals and wrap them around the inside of the glass. This is to hide the stems in the glass. Cut the petals in half, length-wise if necessary.

  3. Cut the foam to fit in the wine glass.

  4. Fill the glass partially full with water, but not to the top.

  5. Add greenery. You’ll want to create a base of greenery throughout the glass.
