Valentine's Day Flower Bouquet Countdown



Love is in the air!  At least it is in our house.  The sky has been so gloomy lately that I needed some color to liven things up.  Naturally, my kids and I decided to decorate for Valentine's Day.  Nothing like a pop of pink and red to spruce things up.

If you are a frequent reader, you are probably aware that each year we do a countdown to Valentine's Day each year.  A couple years ago we did a Heart Paper Chain Countdown.  Last year we did a Clothespin Countdown.  This year we decided to fill a bouquet with a new flower each day.


Using PicMonkey, I created these countdown tags for each flower.  (Of course you can save and print a copy for yourself!)  I simply cut them out, hole punched the top, and put one on each flower stem.


I put out a vase and laid the flowers all around it.  Each day one of my kids puts a flower in the vase.  They are constantly asking me if it is their turn.  I knew the girls would love it, but Bud has taken a real shine to it.  His little body shakes with joy whenever I tell him it's his turn.


The vase is looking better each day.

I bought my flowers, but you could definitely make your own.  Try some of these techniques:
