You can find the how tos on you tube. It took one roll of mesh fabric, one metal 16" wreath , pipe cleaners to match the fabric, and fillers like flags, ribbon, pin wheels ...try it!

Each time I walk into a fabric store and saw that mesh fabric, it drew me in. Then I saw a beautiful one, made by my mother in law, that inspired me to try. After she showed me how, I continued. By switching out the flowers, etc the wreath can change. Choose fabric color to go with several holidays. For example a red mesh can double for Valentines Day, Christmas, Fourth of July, etc.altho the differences are subtle, I made this one for Memorial Day, then switched the "doo dads" for July 4th.
Hi ! Please bear with me, my photos have completely disappeared and I am searching to restore them. I waste more time managing the site and less time blogging, no fun! Help!

The menu: mini artichoke quiche, with field greens, fillo filled tastings, yogurt with granola and raspberries
Below fillo cups filled with: 1) chicken salad, 2)hazelnut cream cheese topped with apricot jam, and 3) blackberries atop a dollop of light whipped topping.

Small tastings has become so popular. These glasses, a gift from my my mother in law are filled with low fat yogurt , granola, and a raspberry sauce.
A gift to each guest has a relaxation theme. Tiny foot spa, summer scented waxes, antibacs, and a clever pillow toss for their desks.
