How To Use Fashion Pins In Your Floral Arrangements
You have a floral arrangement that will last all the way through November. The flowers can be taken out, the ribbon untied and the vase can be used again for whatever you choose to create for Christmas. I can see this vase in the middle of my dining room table with a red and gold decorative bow and different kinds of greenery, pine cones, and red berries falling around the sides. Layer greenery flat on the table, intertwining white crystalized snow flakes, Christmas bulbs, and votive candles for a festive look. And don’t forget to use a sparkly bobble pin as the focal point on the ribbon. This year, I’m using a large crystal flower to change out this pumpkin pin to complete my Christmas floral design. Reminder: Don’t forget to save all of your leftover silk flowers for future projects. These silk florals were last years purchase from Micheals and the ribbon was purchased this year from Hobby Lobby.
This vase was only $5.00 and it helped raise money for a special charity called Joey’s P.A.W. Thomas and I hit all of the vendors tables and bought items along the way. Over $2,500 was raised and will go to helping one pup get four new prosthetics. This sweet soul will be able to walk again because of all the support! There just might be another idea here…wanting to raise money for a charity that you support? Organize a garage/yard sale advertising that 100% of the proceeds go to the charity you are supporting!

I love it! When Adam and Kate got married Kate and her Mom made all of the bridesmaids bouquets and her own from fashion pins. The florist finished them by wrapping and ribbons. It was stunning! One of her showers everyone bought fashion pins and some of them had such memorable stories to go along with them. I had some from my mom and Tim’s mom and they became part of Kate’s bouquet. It was so special. Emily has hers on her nightstand in a pretty vase and Kate uses hers in a vase as her dining room table centerpiece.
Awh such a great idea and very special. I’ve seen those bouquets before but having everyone bring a pin to the shower and tell their story is wonderful. I bought 2 pins…a pumpkin and a dog. I’m going to use the dog pin in another arrangement and will blog about it. Can’t wait to share it with everyone! Thanks for your comment. Always appreciated :-).
