DIY Party Topiaries

Spring is here and let the shower season begin! Parties don’t have to be complicated, just something simple on a stick is all you need to make someone smile. These topiaries would be so fun down the length of a Spring brunch or on each side of a buffet at a baby shower. A simple mix of plaster, like what kids use in elementary school, can make a great anchor to hold wood dowels.  In no time at all you can have a fun garden of party ready pretties.
