The true meaning of Labor Day is celebrating those who have given their time, best efforts and worked hard in their lives for this country. This Labor Day, we’d like to help you celebrate your hard work and efforts with a special store wide sale as well as sharing some of our tips for ways to save money on your Labor Day festivities.
Enjoy a Staycation Instead of getting away for a long weekend, enjoy a relaxing staycation at home. Tell your friends and family that you’re out of town for the weekend if you don’t want to be bothered. Start a book, rent some movies or just sleep the weekend away, you’ve earned it.
Fall Cleaning Use the extra time this weekend to finish up any projects that may have gotten away from you this summer or start something new for the fall – clean out the gutters, organize your pantries and closets or clear out the garage. Even if you spend your weekend working around the house, it’s an energizing diversion from the work world over the long weekend.
Shop Smart Labor Day weekend is a great time to do some shopping! Aside from our store wide 15% off sale, there are back to school promotions as well as summer clearance and new fall previews. Do some smart shopping this weekend and don’t forget to take advantage of our store wide sale this weekend!
Get Crafty If your family enjoys crafts, this weekend is a great time to make something amazing. Google is full of projects big and small, but here are some of our favorites from past posts that are sure to keep you busy this weekend.
There are so many ways to make floating candle decorations and we can provide you with some cool ideas. This idea is perfect for weddings, outdoor parties, and simple romantic dinners.
The basic idea behind making such centerpiece is to take a vase, a bowl, or any other glass vessel and fill it with water. Next, you need to put there some candles and flowers in it. That could be orchids, roses, lilies, and any other flowers you like. You can use as whole flowers as simply their petals. We also recommend adding some additional decor to your centerpieces. That could be pebbles, sea shells or even fresh leaves.
Enjoy all these centerpieces we gathered for you. We hope you’ll make something like that for a dinner with your beloved one for the next dinner. It’s really worth the trouble.
If you have ever tried arranging flowers in a wide mouth vase or bowl, then you know that the flowers tend to just fall to the side. if you form a grid with cellophane tape or any special tape that would blend well with the colors use it for all the flower arrangements! The tape will support your flowers and give you better control of your arrangement. just be sure that the rim of your bowl or vase is dry and your container is full of water before assembling your grid. The single downfall for this technique is that it is more difficult to change the water.
This is one of my favorite way to add a little pop of WOWness factor to any vase! Not only is it gorgeous, but the small vase inside of the larger vase makes it easier to assemble your bouquet. You can fill the outer vase with anything that fits the season: lemons, limes, oranges, large leaves. For this we used a mid sized 5×6″ cylinder glass vase and small 3×6″ block vase.
Floating flowers are a fun way to decorate for special occasions, or to simply create something different for your dining room table. Most flowers float pretty well on their own until they start to pool with water and slowly sink. For a longer lasting centerpiece, use bubble wrap to make little skirts for your flowers. Our high quality and affordable clear bubble bowl vases make a great unique centerpiece!
instead of traditional vase of flowers, think opposite of outside the vase, in this case inside. Choose one large flower of group of flowers to showcase inside of a cylinder vase or unique tapered glass as displayed in the photo. use the rocks to keep the flowers upright and add just enough water to keep the stems soaked. This looks so stylish and chic!
For unique shaped containers, use floral foam to help create shapes that would otherwise be impossible. floral foam helps with any vase of container that is not transparent to create height and drama to flowers that would otherwise perhaps fall to the side. make sure to soak the foam for about 20-30 minutes before arranging the flowers on it.
