A PINK Wreath...for PINK Saturday

It's PINK Saturday and Spring time in Michigan. The warmer weather has arrived and it has been beautiful this week. It's time to get the flower beds planted. Nothing says, "Welcome" more than a wonderful PINK wreath to greet your guests. I taught a wreath making class this week and we had lots of fun. It really doesn't seem like work to me. It's so much fun sharing with others and being able to create at the same time. I made sure I had on one of my PINK spring time aprons with matching PINK shoes with little flowers on them. Anything PINK and girly is the perfect outfit for me! Here is the completed wreath.

I always have a wreath on my front door. Spring and Summer are my favorite times of the year. All my flowers are different shades of PINK. I've purchased my flowers and I will be planting this weekend. I have so much to do before the graduation party on June 20th. Nothing like a party to help get done all those lingering house projects.
For an added bonus during the class, I made this set of door cans. I used the same flowers as the wreath. I originally made some for the fall, (check out my previous post HERE). You can hang these in many different places. I'm going to make some for my house before the party. Can't have to many PINK flowers for the summer!
What wonderful colors..... It's an easy project. Just use two 15 ounce cans, wrap with assorted decorative ribbon, a few buttons to hold on the ribbon handles and fill beautiful silk flowers. It's that easy! Make a set for yourself or give as a wonderful gift.
Check out "How Sweet the Sound", there are lots of other wonderful PINK ideas... Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the holiday and take some time to plant some PINK flowers....

What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

That wreath is breathtaking! I, too, am celebrating that Michigan is warming up but I'm so far north that warm to me isn't the same as warm to you☺

Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms' way.

Your door wreath is just gorgeous. You didn't mention the size, but it looks very large. When I was working as a floral designer I loved to make wreaths. I know that a lot of time and work went into yours and it shows, just beautiful, happy pink saturday, Char
