A Special Birthday Bouquet! ;)

For Brent’s birthday, as I mentioned in a previous post, that I made him one of his favourite desserts: Macarons. Well.. that wasn’t all I made for him. 😉

On his birthday, I gave him a special bouquet of some of his favourite things. I wanted to do something special, that was just for him, and so I went out and bought some of his favourite candies, and one of his favourite adult treats – Amaretto.

I then bought a sparkly green leaf that would be the base on any floral bouquet, and placed that at the back or base of my bouquet. I then created flower “stems” out of different shades of green pipe cleaners twisted together. I attached a stem to each candy box, and to the amaretto, then pulled them together like a floral bouquet.

Once all the ‘flowers’ and ‘stems’ were created, the entire bouquet was wrapped in cellophane and ribbons, just like you would receive at a florist. 🙂

It lay waiting for him on his birthday. We was very surprised, and absolutely loved it! 😀

The wrapped bouquet! :D
