Holiday Wreath and Punch

SO FUN and EXTREMELY easy! Mix a bottle of champagne, sparkling cidar (I used cranberry) and one of Welches fruit punches together in a bowl.

For the wreath use a cake pan and fill with water about 1/3 full. Add fun festive fruits in reds and green for Christmas and then freeze. When completely frozen add to the punch and you have an adorable holiday punch with a festive wreath! Guests will love it!

Girlie Project...

So, not too long ago I was visiting a friend's house and she had these cute round-ball-like things hanging from her daughter's ceiling covered in flowers. She had told me that she got the idea after seeing something similar at Pottery Barn. Pottery Barn price? $65! She made them herself. I thought it would go well in Maliyah's room and decided to give it a shot myself! I bought a large round ball (for keeping flowers and such in-place) from Michaels for about $6. Then I bought several fake flower-stems that ran me about $10. I used my glue gun to put the flowers just where I wanted them...voila!

Centerpieces for the Holidays...

I used three glass vases of various shapes and sizes. I filled each vase by layering cranberries, paper snow and mini-ornaments on top. I put a round, red-glittered candle in one and three cranberry stems in another. I finished the winter centerpiece-off by using fake snow beneath!
Got a great deal on this green hurricane! I found it today at Value Village. When I got home I filled it with all my left-over fun!
