DIY: Mother’s Day Bouquet

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th for all of those wandering aimlessly, calendars defunct. That means the time is near to figure out what exactly you’re gifting the woman who bore you. Of course, you could run to the nearest mall, be consumed and inundated with clothes and crowds, or you can take matters into your own hands and CREATE something. Thoughtful and less stress? Sounds like a winner. Plus, your mom will appreciate the originality; recalling kindergarten days of handwritten love notes, and butterfly paintings. Here are a few tips to making a pretty floral arrangement anyone would love.
