Alright, so one thing you probably don't know about me is that I love surprises. Some people hate them. I am not one of those people.
I love surprising other people with little things and I LOVE being surprised as well.
Soooo, I wanted to do something along those lines for Easter this year with a surprise bouquet bombing. The thought is that you could whip up a few of these mini bouquets, along with a card, and go bomb friends' and families' doorsteps with a little card and flowers to say Happy Easter.
This would work just as well for Mother's Day, birthdays and general 'thank you's too. It's like sending a card in the mail, only WAY more awesome. Here's how to make your own...
I used a variety of flowers from Flower Muse, which is my absolute favorite place to get flowers. Can you tell? I use them a lot.
Here's the list of flowers I used: Juliet Garden Roses, Ivory Garden Roses, Parrot Tulips, Thistle, Lavender, Willow Eucalyptus. In addition to flowers, you'll also need floral tape, a card with envelope, pen, scissors, and ribbon. I used this velvet ribbon from Minted.
1. Create a small bouquet of flowers, similar to how I've made DIY bouquets in the past. Some of my past tutorials for bouquets include: budget friendly spring bouquet, mini message bouquet DIY, and Mother's Day bouquet. Then secure with floral tape. Cut the stems at the bottoms so they are all the same length, if you wish.
2. Add a long ribbon, so you can use it to tie to the door handle if needed.
3. Write a quick note or card and head out to deliver your bouquet.
4. When you arrive at your friend's house, quietly attach the bouquet and the note to their front door. Knock or ring the doorbell and run!
So, what do your think? Are you willing to give this bouquet bombing surprise a try for Easter? Mother's Day? Or any other special occasion?
