Tomorrow is February 18th or President's Day.....or Washington's Birthday....whichever you prefer))) It's always a nice time to fly your flag and honor our past presidential leaders. We can never have too many occasions to bring to mind the greatness of our country.....freedom.....liberty....patriotism.....America the Beautiful)))
So here's a quick arrangement that you can put together, if not for this President's Day, keep it in mind for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Flag Day, Veterans Day....and Martin Luther King's Day has past, but these creations are great to pull out of the closet time after time. Storage seems to be my only problem!
The top hat creation was done by RAZ using three of their Lighted Uncle Sam Top Hats
. These Top Hats
should be arriving to Trendy Tree any day now. We have a shipment due this week, so we're hoping the Uncle Sam Hats
will be on them. These hats are lighted and about 10.5" in height. RAZ has them stacked so you can see how quite a large arrangement this would be. One would look great too))
The Uncle Sams Hats
are very sturdy being made of sisal on a metal wire frame. They have white clear lights inside and will connect individually or all three connect together.
They are priced and sold individually for $27.50 at Trendy Tree. You also may choose your preferred style. The Uncle Sams Hats
are very popular each year so if you're interested when they come in, don't wait around too long. It's a product that we order more of each year.....and still sell out early! We have a new feature on the website too, if you're interested in the hat and want to be notified when it arrives, there is a place on the product page to enter your email and as soon as the inventory is updated, the website fires off an email to you to let you know the item has arrived.
And don't worry.....we don't collect email addresses in this manner to use later for anything. That's not something that we would do, we respect your privacy. There is an option on the website and an option on the checkout page when
you order if you choose to be added to our newsletter list.
The other items used in this centerpiece by RAZ is a new Red, Silver and Blue Pom Pom Spray
. This is a new 2013 item and is already in stock. It sells for $11.99 and is a large spray. The pom poms are a good 3" or more in diameter. The spray is a little over 30" in ht. It looks like three of these sprays were used in the centerpiece.
RAZ used another spray that we don't have in stock for this arrangement, it was a Sequined Ball Spray, they used four. But, we have some other patriotic sprays that are similar and would result in the same look.
The image on the left is a Glittered Patriotic Twig Spray
in red, white and blue. It is 33" in
length and sells for only $3.99. It is in stock now.
Here's another inexpensive patriotic spray on the right that would be excellent filler. It too is only $3.99. It's a Glittered Patriotic Grass Spray in red, white and blue. It's 35" in length.
When making creations here in the shop, we'll always looking for ways to save a little money and achieve the same result. So spend you money on some RAZ products for the major impact and you can always fill in with some less expensive items I like to call "generic" decorations. We try to keep a variety of items in a price range that meets
It looks like a half ball of Styrofoam was used to hold the picks in place, and the Styrofoam was covered with a Moss Patch
. Messy! But works well))) The Moss Patch is about 12" x 8"
The second arrangement by RAZ is a creation done in a white earthen ware container.
You can never go wrong by purchasing plain white, cream or solid color big vases. It's amazing how many times you'll put them out and realize it's the perfect container for your project.
I like clear glass too.....works beautifully with any sort of fresh arrangement. Love the way natural stems look in the water...
This arrangement is filled with RAZ Glittered Pom Pom Sprays
. These Pom Pom sprays came out last year from RAZ and I'm so glad they brought them back again this year because our customers loved them! They were so popular last summer, that they also came out with a red, green and white variety for the 2012 Christmas season. Thanks RAZ))) The Pom Pom sprays are wired and easily shaped, I like how they have shaped some of the red pom pom into a downward or dropping like position.
These Pom Pom sprays are glittery and really beautiful. They remind me of bursting firecrackers. Here's what one of our customers had to say about the Glittered Pom Pom Sprays:
1 5 out of 5 stars by Rita on February 16th 2012
RAZ 25" Red White Blue Pom Pom Spray
Length of ownership:
I just got these today, and they are beautiful! The pictures do not do them justice!! They are much larger then expected, and very shimmery! I will be ordering more soon!
We do appreciate our customers taking the time to come back to the website and make comments about their purchases.
We always appreciate constructive criticism too! Sometimes we get messages by email or other that says.....the picture doesn't show the right color....or I can't see the back and this would help....... We always do our best to go
back and take more images, etc.
Back to the centerpiece.....the creation has a bit of greenery at the base and another style of RAZ patriotic spray called Glittered Firework. Sorry, but we don't have that spray either.
We don't have the RAZ Star Garland in stock, but we do have another RAZ Patriotic Star Spray
with red, white and blue glittered stars, some with touches of polka dots.
You can browse through our Patriotic
collection of decorations from RAZ and our "generic" decorations too. You'll find lots of the items already in stock and more on the way very soon. Displaying our "colors" is always in season to me.....our flag stays out year round and I love incorporating patriotic decorations in to our backyard entertaining. You can just never go wrong with Red, White and Blue)))
