Candy Corngratulations

"Be joyful with those who are joyful" (Romans 12:15 NIRV).

A sweet high school senior from our church was just named Miss Wetumpka High School. I had just written her a note of congratulations when I learned that her mother was also named teacher of the year at our elementary school. When Joe told me the good news, I said, "Oh, my! Laine is Miss Wetumpka High School, and Miss Joetta is Miss Wetumpka Elementary!"

I'm so proud of these two Christian ladies and the way their lights shine in our little community. Somehow, another note just doesn't seem appropriate to celebrate their accomplishments. So I hope this pretty fall arrangement will say congratulations.

For this whimsical design, I used two cylindrical vases. I filled the bottom of the larger vase with a thin layer of candy corn, then placed a smaller bud vase filled about two-thirds of the way with water inside the larger vase. Holding the smaller vase steady and covering the top, I sprinkled candy corn around the vase to fill the space between the two vases. Then I filled the smaller bud vase with fresh-cut flowers and greenery. A pretty bow on a floral pick tucked into the candy corn adds the final touch.

I made similar arrangements using bubble gum at daughter Emma's sweet-shoppe themed "Tea for 2" earlier this year. You can see a sample of this sweet design in her candy land here.

I hope the candy corn arrangement above will add a refreshing touch of autumn to the Kellys home. And even more, I hope it reminds them how loved they are. And how proud I am that their lights shine so brightly in our schools.

Laine is also a candidate for Homecoming Queen this week, I believe. It is refreshing when such wonderful people receive the honors they deserve!

Ronnica said...

So pretty! I hope that brought joy into their lives!

What a lovely, creative idea for autumn floral arrangements! I'm certain the recipients were touched by your thoughtfulness!

Debbie said...

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

You are so thoughtful and creative. I try really hard to be thoughtful but I just don't have the creative knack...I'm jealous!

T. Brodie said...

I saw you walking down the hallway with those, only SECONDS after I had read your blog. How beautiful and creative!

Me said...

I know Joetta!! and have always left feeling better just from being around her :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

You know, YOU are just so sweet & thoughtful, with the thank you notes & everything you do. With all the bad on this earth you are exactly what offsets it and makes this world a lot brighter.

Meredith Teagarden said...

This is such a great idea. I will be back to see more.

Karin @ 6ByHisDesign said...

I love how you used the bow to tie in all the colors! AND I am TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH THAT CAKE PLATE! I'm borrowing your idea for a little shindig I'm having here soon --- THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION!

And...on an entirely different note, thank you for browsing through some of my 'older' posts and leaving your sweet thoughts!!

{{{hugs}}}

Oh - and can I have another baby so you'll make me those cupcakes?

Tara said...

A friend just told me about your blog and I love it! Ms. Joetta was my brother's 4th grade teacher at ACA many years ago! She is a wonderful woman and teacher, and so deserving of your cute gift.

I love all your creative ideas. Thanks for sharing them.
