It’s no secret that I just love to throw a good party and last week I had a couple girl friends over for a Garden Party Dinner. To compliment the Garden theme of the night I created these EOS Chapstick blossoms as a little party favor. They were so easy to throw together and showed my guests how grateful I am for their friendship. These would be perfect for anytime of the year, but they are especially fitting for Spring.
“Friendships are like flowers, you must water them if you want them to grow.”
This is such a great quote because you really do have to devote time and energy to develop and grow your friendships. It’s can be hard to set time aside with all the world throws onto our plate as women. We have families, work, spouses, households and most likely friendships come at the end of that list. Hopefully this little gift can be a reminder to you and the friends you hold dear to spend time together to grow your friendships.
These are so simple to put together in just a couple minutes. Save the sheet below and print out on a full size sheet of paper. Cut out the flowers and then cut a circle in the middle large enough that when you take the top of the EOS off, you can put the bottom of the chapstick through the center. Make sure you can push the paper flower all the way down to the bottom of the threads of the chapstick. Last, you just screw the top back on then brighten someone’s day with a little treat.

Check out the rest of the Girls Night Garden Party that I threw last week. If you happen to be in the Orange County area around May 30th make sure to check out the details on this year’s Elevate Blog Conference. There are still a handful of tickets available and we would love to see you there!
