Christmas Balls Tree

Christmas Balls Tree

Christmas Balls Tree - Ornament Tree

Why make a Christmas table decoration? Because they are fun, versatile and beautiful! I used to make these for fundraisers and craft fairs and they are still my favorite Christmas centerpiece. You can place them on your dining room table, fireplace mantel, holiday food buffet or coffee table during the holidays for a bit my spice to your season. For complete, step by step instructions, check out my article Christmas Balls Tree.

They are not hard to make and will last for years to come. They also make wonderful gifts! What do you get for grandma or the neighbor? Design and make them in any color scheme that chrismas ball ornaments are made — so they match any decor. I have also made them in brown, gold, burgundy and copper for Fall and Thanksgiving. Any shape foam can be used. Have fun with this — off to make another one myself! 🙂

One thing I truly enjoy is decorating for themed parties and weddings. I love everything about it — the planning, research, building and actual decorating. Below is a short list of a few of the parties I have done in the past and some articles I wrote to help others planning an event with the same or similar themes. I like details and building my ideas from others, so here are some of my ideas for you to build on.

Poems for Parents of the Bride or Groom

Poems for ParentsWhen I was a bride — eons ago it seems — I wrote a poem to my parents. It was a “thank you” type poem. I read it to them at our rehearsal dinner and their wasn’t a dry eye in the house… including me. It was heartfelt and a long overdue thanks for all they had done for me.

Since then, I have improved upon it and have written an article that has some poems for brides or grooms to give to their parents. Not everyone can put on paper what it in their heart — so here’s some help!

Wedding Poems for Parents of the Bride and Groom

For other poems like favor, brother or to the bride or groom from parents — check out Wedding Poetry.

Poems can be mounted inside a frame along with a baby picture or wedding picture and make a wonderful keepsake. Parents keep the things their children give them. Make this one – on your most important day – worth while! Below are a few ideas for framing a poem to give to your mom, dad or both parents!
