Mother's Day Vases

Every year we host a Mother's Day brunch at our home. We always have a great time and I have fun coming up with different floral arrangements for each of the moms to take home. This year I was inspired by the cover of the current issue of 'All You' magazine. The vases were homemade and very simple to do and I loved the bright colors -- and the flowers that fill them are just a simple -- and just as bright! I decided to use this idea as my template, but did make a few changes along the way. The magazine used old Mason jars as their vases; I bought simple, clear glass vases at the craft store - very inexpensive. Though mine are a bit different, I do like the way they turned out.

Here's the magazine cover that served as the inspiration:



And here are the vases I made.



Now all they need are the gerbera daisies for even more pops of bright color and they'll be all set for gift giving on Sunday.
