Teacher Appreciation/Last Day of Preschool Gifts
Today was Mary's last day of preschool. To show our appreciation for all that the preschool directors, classroom teachers, and teacher aides did to make Mary's first year of school a positive experience, we put together these tiny bud vases. Mary chose the ribbons and picked out the roses. Mommy did the assembling borrowing from our vast jelly/mason jar collection in storage. They turned out so sweet and yet were so simple to put together. Mary was really proud to present them to each of her teachers. Now, on to the business of summer!
We started with a simple bouquet of red roses.
Cut down the stems and placed in jelly jars adding some decorative ribbon.
Voila! Tiny, homemade bud vases.

After a celebratory Happy Meal, Mary gives the big thumbs up because Schools out for Summer!
