This afternoon Kara attended a birthday party held at a local flower shop. We arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm which was quite an adventure, but once inside we had very nice time. Each of the children were given a flower pot, foam, and several flowers to make thier own flower arrangements.
Kara decided to try and use one of every flower. Once the flowers were added, they were also given accessories such as butterflies, birds, glitter picks and more.
Kara spent at least an hour trying to decide which bird she wanted for her arrangement. She really could not decide what she wanted to do. Finally at the end of the party, she asked if she could buy the other 2 since they were only supposed to have 1 bird each. The sweet woman who owned the flower shop told her that she could have all 3 since she knew how hard it been for her to decide. I hope she is not always this indecisive. LOL! I love how her arrangement turned out. Several people told her she did a great job with her arrangement, so who knows she might now have another creative passion.
Most of children who attended the party were in the 10 yr old range, who thought the flower arranging was a lot of fun. Their craft and take home gift was their flower arrangements. Flower Power could be a great theme for an older child, teen or even a mom get together.
