Gift, Party Favor, or Prize

Don't you wish some days could be spent like this?

Me too.  But alas, I am hosting neighborhood bunco tonight so let the prepping, cooking, baking, and cleaning begin.  Oh yes, and I guess I will take care of my kids in the middle of all that!

Our bunco group has the hostess supply two $5 gifts for two of the winners.  I decided I would make a little something that would last in someone's home.  I love house plants.  They add color to a home, they are good for your home's air quality, and they bring the outdoors in.  The more the merrier in my opinion.

I started with two terra cotta pots and two bases (about $2 each from Michael's with coupon).  I also picked up some acrylic paint on sale for .77 in a bright, aqua blue.  I painted the top rim of the pot and the base in the aqua and did the base in chalkboard paint.

I added an African Violet to each of the pots (2.98 each at Home Depot) and wrote "Bloom" and "Sprout" on each of them.

I then wrapped them in clear cellophane and added a fun, spring colored ribbon (both were $1 from Dollar Store).  A little bit homemade, quick, inexpensive, and a gift that will last!

I also posted about another cute gift idea using a jade plant.  Hope the winners like their gifts!!
