Creative Idea- Candy Necklace Stemware

Abig toast to all moms this Mother’s Day! My friend Melanie and I are co-coordinators for the Hospitality Committee of our women’s group called MOPS- Mothers of Preschoolers. It has been our great pleasure creating a welcoming and relaxing environment for all the moms who attend. We have really enjoyed coming up with creative center pieces, Candy Bars, and Italian Soda Bars for the ladies to share. Our mission was to do the little extras that would make the (very tired, worn out, haven’t had a hot meal in weeks, or a shower alone) moms feel special plus be ideas that they could easily reproduce themselves. Everyone likes a good idea right? Especially a simple one.

Many of the ideas Melanie and I used this year in MOPS were taken from Risa’s site, The ParTea Planner. One could look in her photo gallery for hours. What a talented and giving hostess she is. There is so much “WOW” on her site and luckily for us, much of it can be reproduced on a smaller scale. Have fun viewing Risa’s many talents and beautiful ideas.

Note- Plastic stemware are wrapped in candy necklaces surrounding a pretty bottle of sparkling Italian Soda for our MOPS Mother’s Day Toast. Idea from Risa’s site, The ParTea Planner.
