Carnation Sundae {DIY}

Happy Thursday loves! Today, I have the cutest little party floral arrangement DIY for you. Back in December, I had the privilege to style a look book shoot for a local company here in Grand Rapids called Dreamspun. Korrie the Owner and I took a playful approach on a "girls party gone wild" theme. We created a whimsical, fun and colorful shoot with a few different looks. I thought back to my floral design days and working as a florist (where my passion first began) and when use to create similar arrangements for the local hospitals in town. Carnation sundaes were always a hit and so simple and cute. These carnations sundaes are just adorable for any kids party and so simple to create. They are sweet enough to almost eat ;) or not.. Enjoy!

Supplies:  glass gems, fountain glass or old fashioned sundae, clippers, 8 carnations, water and a cherry
 1. Fill glass ½ way with water.
2. Place glass beads or stones in cup all fill until ½ way full
3. Cut carnations short enough to fit in glass without touching bottom of sundae glass.
4. Place 5 carnations around the perimeter of the glass, and push them down into the stones to cover stems.
5. Place the last 3 carnations on top of the previous carnations to form a second layer.
6. Place a real cherry on top or a fake one works just as well. 
 Enjoy your sweet creation!
