As an event planner, there can sometimes be some funny things on my desk.
Big jugs of leftover vodka - check.
BIG homecoming corsages - check.
Hot glue gun.. xacto knife.. paper cutter - check check check
Stacks of yearbooks we're pouring over for reunion photos - check.
Several half full drinks - check. (Ask my co-workers, I'm awful about that one.)
But sometimes you find something cute on my desk. I love flowers and I love just picking up a bunch to display on my desk for the week. Places like Kroger and Walmart cut great deals on flowers while they still have a lot of beauty left to give.
The arrangement above is what currently brightens my day. Flowers are from Kroger. Huge bouquet of tulips (my fave) for $12! They also had a dozen PERFECT roses on clearance for $6! Lots of them in a variety of colors.
Used as a vase - a pair of children's rain boots. I had been looking around for rain boots for my son. He loves to splash in puddles and on the cooler spring days, he really needed some rain boots. Anyway... I found some for him and I found these smaller ones (above) at Goodwill for $2. (These are a toddler size 5, in case you're wondering the ratio of how big the boots should be to hold a bouquet.)
If you look closely at the photo, you'll notice that I've wedged 2 plastic cups into the boots. These are small, disposable cups. Probably holds 6-8 ozs of water each. They fit perfectly into the boots and were a great size to hold the flowers/water.
Anticipate spring by adding a bit of fresh flowers into your work space - and don't forget to think outside the box when looking for floral containers.
