Miniature Orchid plants


A golfing friend of mine celebrated a BIG birthday, she was not happy about reaching this age, but we told her the alternative wasn't very appealing!
Needless to say she didn't want our golf four-some to go over the top (as we sometimes are known to do), so we agreed to keep her birthday simple.

I found these adorable miniature orchid plants, at of all places Ikea. Of course I had to buy not one, not two, but three. Two were gifts and one was a gift for me!
Anyhow I created these cute little boxes compliments of MTME templates and decorated them with DSP. I placed the flowers in small mosaic glass containers, and added a pair of garden gloves to each of the boxes. One of these plants was my gift to my friend for her BIG birthday last week in keeping with a simple theme. The other one is for another friend's birthday and of course the third one (not photographed) is mine!

Just thought you might enjoy seeing these little cuties!
