This was the 11th Spring musical our family has been involved with at the high school! I’m not sure what I am going to do with myself when Tessa graduates from high school next year!
I have put together a lot of flower bouquets during that time. As I mentioned in an earlier post, flowers can get a little old after a while so it’s fun to come up with something different.
Candy bouquets make a great gift.
And even a Candy Bar Cake is a great idea.
I am always on the lookout for a new, fun idea.
How cute is that? A flower bouquet made out of playing cards, dice and dollar bills. The perfect flower bouquet for Big Julie (he’s a really big gambler in the show – I mean really big!!!) I had to stop him and ask if I could take a picture. Found out that my creative friend Laurie made it for him! Way to go Laurie.
I decided I wanted to do a little something for all the members of the cast. Forgetting that it was a rather large cast (50 kids) I decided to make dice shaped cookies for everyone.
It turned into a little bigger project than I anticipated but they did turn out so cute!!
My kitchen table looked like this for several days!
I also made cookies shaped like hearts, diamonds, spades, clovers and some lips for the Hot Box Dolls. I wrapped two cookies in a cellophane bag and then attached a little card. I used playing cards for the backing.
We had given Tessa flowers the previous weekend after the show so for closing night I wanted to do something a little different.
I decided to try my hand at a cookie bouquet for the first time. I learned quite a few things through the process and decided I needed to take an icing lesson from my friend Dawn next time she makes her amazing shortbread cookies but I think it turned out pretty good for my first try. I made one for Tessa and one for the shows director.
I’ll do a separate post to give you a little more detail on how I put it together etc. Stay tuned!
I helped the kids put gifts together for all the adults involved in the play – music director, choreographer, orchestra conductor, set designer etc. too. They received their gifts in these cute white gift bags that I turned into dice!
Hope this post got your creative juices flowing! Stay tuned for more info on the cookie bouquet!!
