Spring bouquets

Last Saturday I hosted our Red Hat Group Spring Event.  Each hostess usually offers a gift or two for the ladies and I went out searching Hobby Lobby and found some lovely spring flowers wrapped in paper and tied with a bow. I felt they were a little pricey and decided to make my own.






I always have silk flowers on hand and a large brown roll of paper for crafting.  I used some of my brown string for the bow. 
 
We had such a fun day, started with lunch at a local restaurant and then saw "Life Could Be a Dream" at the American Heartland Theatre here in Kansas City.
 
Lots of music from the 1950's and 60's.  Remember the songs "Duke of Earl", "Rama Lama Ding Dong",  just a  couple of the ones we were enjoying.

Oh, those songs are very familiar to me, too! I still love to listen to an oldies station that plays some of the good songs from the '50s and '60s. What pretty flowers and a nice day! Hugs!

I would have loved a bouquet of spring flowers as a gift! You were smart to create your own bundles, Ann. Thanks for visiting from Alma's party. :-) Sue

Hi there! I saw all the wheat in your blog header, and I immediately thought of Kansas! I live just across the border in Lee's Summit, MO, born & raised in Kansas City, MO! Nice to see another Midwestern blogger!

Glad you enjoyed the performance at the American Heartland. It's such a great little theater, and they bring in such fun stuff. Such a nice hostess gift you created, too. It's great that you were able to do it yourself and personalize it as such.

So nice to "meet" you! Have a great week! (visiting from Seasonal Sundays)
