Picture attached. I used a basket with florist foam inside and a green silk plant, then added the bows on sticks (and a few of the clippies, like bees and ladybugs, I clipped right on the leaves of the plant).
that is soooooo cute...I love it. I use a plant too. I am making some for my shop for Christmas Gifts...They are talks of the party's I have been too...and here in West Texas nobody has never seen them...
