Mother's Day Gift Flowerpots



Happy Tuesday! Mother's Day is coming up in a few weeks and I thought these mini flower pots filled with gardening tuck-ins would make sweet gifts for your mom, special friends or even teachers!



Come on over to Seasonal Delights for the how-to instructions. If you make some, I'd love to hear what special things you filled them with!

I am inspired. I have some smallish tin pails leftover from another use that I have been trying to figure out what to do with. This is a perfect.

Thank you for sharing such a fun, pretty and useful gift idea.

You asked about the food shortage I mentioned. I posted some news article links about it on my blog.

What a sweet gift. My mother in law loves gardening and I think she would really enjoy something like this for Mother's Day. I love the little Mary Englebreit book. Great idea.

TJ said...

These are beautiful!

Now I understand why there is no camping for you during the summer. I just can't fathom the warm weather so many are having. Our apple growers are suffering here due to the below average temps and they are projecting a 20% crop loss. Hopefully you can have a wonderful Fall trip or two.

Charlotte said...

Neat idea. Reminds me of my daughter. She always comes up with unique ideas for gifts.

Vicky said...

They are lovely, and would do for a great variety of occasions, not just mother's day.

Sorry for the long commenting silence - have just been too busy to do more than the minimum!

I think I am back now....

Those are nice. LOVE the camping photos... we will go in late June, we have to wait for the snow to melt (remember snowbanks? I still have a 4-foot one across my back lawn, leftover from the plow!)

Stephanie said...
