Oh Boy!!

So I have to admit...I have not kept up with my blog lately.  Sorry about that...I am busy creating some wonderful pieces to share with you soon. Meanwhile, I will try to post now and then so you can get an idea of what's going on over here at Polka Dots and Parties.  
This is a piece I created with a bold and bright theme for a little boy.  My thought is that yes, it can be used as a centerpiece for a party, a dessert table or maybe just party decor, but after I took a step back and looked at reminds me of a beautiful plant!!  A paper why not give it as a baby gift, or a birthday gift? Poke some candy lollipops or cookies on a stick into the base.  Who won't love that...I know I would! Next week, I will have a couple more complete as well as favors to be sure to check back soon.  
One last update...I added more favorite paper companies to my right side bar.  I will add links on them soon.  Just love going to Archivers in Naperville for all my paper needs.  They are so helpful in that store!  

So until next week...Happy Crafting!

I would like to tell you that these are so pretty,
cute, darling all depending on which one I am looking
at. I have been making similar centerpieces for my
family but I use pots (some terra cotta)or empty food
containers. I haven't found anything good that has a lid. May I ask what you use? It kind of looks like a cake frosting container. I'm not trying to lift your idea. Like I said, I have been making similar centerpieces for years but I like yours better. LOL I have just had a brain f**t for the
container I would like to use. If I ever did use your idea but made it my own I would definately say where the idea came from and direct them to your blog. Thx : )

Hi there!! I actually use many different containers from a restaurant supply. I think this one is actually the size of a can of corn. Glad you like them.
