I wanted this shower to be a very special event.
Everyone is coming dressed in black, white or both.
Some will have candles in them. The others are filled with shredded black paper.
These are durable conversational pieces. Each jar has a different old wedding picture on the front, and on the back, are cute Love sayings. They will (I'm sure) be picked up and admired.
I needed more Black & White decorations.
When I saw some flags used as added color, in a magazine, I knew that was just what I needed. I went to Target and bought little America flags from the dollar bins. I took the flags off (will use them for July 4th) and added homemade black & white flags. I bought black & white plaid shirts and black & white flowered blouses, all from the thrift store. I used them as the material for my little flags.
I envision using these in flower pots or in flower arrangements.
Tomorrow I will show you our patio! But right now I have to get back to work.
To make the most of available space when storing tapered glassware, position every other glass upside down.
