Happy B-day Bouquet

My dear friend's daughter had her 16th birthday last week so I whipped something up for her.

Gathering the goods..She is a girlie girl!!

Remembered to stuff a few thick pieces of packing paper down in the long shaft and added remnants of that $1 Stroe plant styrofoam.  It has to be grounded real tight to hold your skewers.  I got the awesome container at Kroger's grocer after Valentine's Day clearance knowing I'd use it for her.

Wow...could not believe how well I was able to get the stakes down into the container.  I LOVE cool Easter basket fluff so I buy all I can when it comes out.  Stuffed some pink fluff into the top so you can not see the guts.

the building of the beast.  Her mom told me some favorite candy and who wouldn't want some of those $1 girlie sock footies?  She loves zebra and has black and hot pink in her room.

it just takes a little finesse to check the sides and back and make sure it passes the test.
I pop dotted some pastel kisses all over too.

Socks, head gear, candy...Oh My!!
She loved it!!

This is her and I together at the baseball opening day.
Her lil brother is best buddies with my eldest.
