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:

Thanksgiving Buzzword



I am always on the hunt for a fun party game - especially when I know that the whole family will be around.  This Thanksgiving I created this fun version of Buzz Word.  During dinner if any of the words on the sheet are spoken the person who said the word must wear the Turkey Cone of Shame.  

What is the "Turkey Cone of Shame" you ask?  


Behold!  The "Turkey Cone of Shame!"  I made these out of cardstock, yarn, and feathers.  The feathers really do make the hat.  These little beauties got passed around to almost everyone.  I had a super cute picture of my grandpa wearing the cone of shame, but my phone broke a little while after Thanksgiving and I lost it.  So sad!

Feel free to save a copy of the Thanksgiving Buzz Word sheet (at the top) to your computer.

Don't miss any of the fun.  Join the Pinning with Purpose Facebook Page.
