Fresh Flowers Delivered to your Home-Bouqs Review #BOUQLOVE

theBouqsThumb

I’m excited to share with you a wonderful company, TheBouqs.com. I’ve ordered flowers from several companies only to be disappointed.  I would spend anywhere from $30-$70 for a bouquet of flowers, only to have a wilting or not so full bouquet that didn’t last long.

IMG_20140414_080600When TheBouqs.com contacted me to see if I would like to try them out, I was happy to! I love flowers and I’m always looking for a wonderful company to use. I was impressed with the variety of bouquets you can choose from on their website. I ordered the Good Karma bouquet, for Easter. A unique and exotic flower, the Lillium Oriental in Pink and White is a great accent for any room or occasion.  

 

20140409_171406The shipping was fast and easy. You can choose from a signature delivery or just have them dropped off at your doorstep. Shipping is included in the price! The flowers were packaged in a sturdy box with your flowers wrapped in brown paper to keep them fresh.  I was really impressed with how they packaged the flowers. The buds on my Lilies were closed when they first arrived showing just how fresh they were and once I placed them in a vase, within a few days they opened. Stunning and beautiful. My house smells wonderful! Just follow the directions and your flowers will last a long time. 

 

IMG_20140414_080659Bouq’s will your flowers on the day you order and deliver straight from the farm so you get the freshest bouq possible! This means delivery just 2-4 days after cut, vs 10-14 elsewhere. They deliver Volcano stems from the equator, 10,000 feet above sea level, which means one thing: sun. And more sun means more color. These Bouqs are fed by pure volcanic snow melt and mineral-rich, ph-balanced soil. I can see and smell the difference. I will order from then again. By far, they are the best flower shipping service. 

 

 

This Easter place your order and get $5.00 off  the Good Karma bouquet or shop for Mother’s Day early!!! SHIPPING INCLUDED on any FLOWER bouquet order from THE BOUQS – Fresh. Easy. Beautiful. $40 Flat Rate on all Bouqs!

Interested in subscribing to their monthly subscription service (you’ll save 10% off each Bouq) or just want to order a Bouq?

Papier-Mache Easter Eggs

main_2b

If your looking for a fun new craft idea for Easter this year, this is it!  I love finding neat and inexpensive way to decorate and create fun craft days with my son. I found this idea on Not Martha . She gives a great step by step way to make this cute eggs and stuff them with treats for your kids.

I think I have another project on my list of “To-Do’s” this weekend!

 

Not Martha Please check out her other crafts!

 

For Easter I made papier-mache polka dotted eggs. I created them using small water balloons and tissue paper then I filled them with candy and toys and sealed them shut. The egg can hold a surprising amount of candy and the tissue paper seems delicate making for a delightfully heavy and yet fragile object, much like real egg. Also like a real egg you have to break the shell to get at what’s inside. I like things you have to destroy to open.

papier-mache easter eggs

You’ll need:

  • water balloons (they make the egg-iest shape)
  • white tissue paper (one sheet will make about three eggs)
  • colorful tissue paper (one sheet will make many eggs, so you don’t need much)
  • a 3/4 inch hole punch
  • a paint brush you don’t care much about
  • liquid laundry starch
  • a sturdy shot glass to hold your egg while you’re working with it
  • a way to hang the balloons to dry
  • enough time to let these dry overnight, and a few hours to let them dry after filling and sealing them (you’ve been warned)

A cutting mat, wheel cutter and straight edge will come in very handy but aren’t completely necessary.

Note: I tried a few variations on the starch. I used watered down wheat paste (the fancy stuff bought at an art supply store), watered down Nori paste and watered down Mod Podge. In the end I found that liquid landry starch right from the bottle was the least sticky and the easiest to work with considering the delicate tissue paper, so I stuck with that.

papier-mache easter eggs

First cut white tissue paper into the following sizes for each egg you’ll be making: one at 10″ x 5.5″, one at 10″ x 4.5″, two at 3.5″. These four sheets will be the base of the egg.

To create the polka dots I made squares of paper with holes in them which we’ll apply over the white base like scales. I cut a 1.5 inch strip of colored tissue, fold it in half, fold it in half again, then fold it in thirds. This made a square which could be punched all the way through with the paper punch. Then I cut each square off the strip. Two strips of tissue will be enough for one egg, three strips will cover two eggs.

Also cut a 1″ strip of your colored tissue paper and cut it into various sizes of triangles, these will fill in any bare spots of color later, I have more detail on this below.

Note: It will be helpful to have all your tissue paper cut and ready in advance. It’s frustrating to need to wash and dry your hands each time you need to cut more tissue. Read the rest of this entry »
