LIFE | Father Daughter Dance


Ella's very first Father Daughter Dance was on Saturday night - the day after Valentine's Day.
She was a bundle of nerves for some reason and did NOT want to sit still for pictures.

I managed to snap a few good photos and I wanted to share with you the adorable handmade corsage and boutonniere I made for her and her daddy to wear for their special night.  The school was selling fresh flower versions for $30 bucks a pop *gasp* so I decided to make my own. I knew immediately I would incorporate the DIY paper flowers I recently shared with all of you and they took me a total of 30 minutes to put together! I think they turned out perfect! and darling! PLUS…Ella can keep them forever as a reminder of her special night with her daddy.




This was Ella getting irritated with the photo-taking...


and here she is…done with photos and ready to head to the dance!


I've never been to one of these things, obviously, but I hear it's all about the dancing and desserts! Come to think of it, isn't that what life is all about? *wink*

Thanks Nicole! It was a quick, last-minute project and I think it turned out really cute. Of course it helped that I already knew how to make the paper flowers from having shared the tutorial from a few weeks ago. I love when past projects give way to new projects! Ha!! And I'm so happy you like them! (even happier you left a comment to let me know). *wink*
