I like to "do" something when I'm getting to know new people so we thought it would be fun to surprise the moms with a floral workshop. I went to Southern Floral to brainstorm and came up with the second Welcome Home Baby idea (julep cup with baby's breath). This idea was simple, affordable, beautiful and I could offer a few tips.
Guess how much I paid for these supplies? Julep cups, scissors and a ton of Baby's Breath (there was a 3rd container full of flowers sitting to the side). Just $104!
The secret to the affordability of this workshop is the julep cups, they're plastic. Can you believe it? The ladies were surprised! These plastic julep cups are used by florists for million dollar weddings!
1. Gather about 5 stems of Baby's Breath in your hand and align the tops like a bouquet.
2. While holding the flowers in your hand, cut the bottoms of the stems all at once to your desired height. Always cut too long because you can always go shorter.

Aren't they beautiful?! And I love the size of this arrangement because it can be transported home in a cup holder.
Everybody went home with flowers and a shopping pass to Southern Floral's wholesale shop. Thank you, SoFloCo!
Thank you again, Carly for hosting such a great evening!
And here's one last arrangement for the memory file, this one would be pretty for a baby girl:
Don't forget about these real julep cups from the last post, they're on sale for Mother's Day! These you can drink from, they are not plastic. The skinny one is silver plated and the other two are nickel plated:
