The party planning continues with some great decor products from Blumebox. I received Cube vases with lollipop inserts and My Monet Blumeboxes for review. There are so many ways to dress up the Blumebox to fit any party decor. Mason's birthday party colors are shades of blue and green so the Sage Green 4 inch cube was perfect.
The Blumebox concept is quite clever. It features a cube or box shape with a plastic liner. There are many colors to choose from to match your theme. You open the box, place liner inside, fill with water then add your flowers to make a lovely arrangement. The cube design allows you to slip an entire potted plant (I'm contemplating on succulents) inside. Since I'm not quite sure if I am going to have flowers for Mason's party, I wanted to try a different type of centerpiece - Marshmallow pops!
The lollipop or cake pop insert folds right up and inserts directly into the 4 inch cube. It has 13 pre-punched holes so that you can place your sticks right in. I decided to attempt chocolate covered marshmallows and used the medium sized sticks. Hubs suggested that I use varying sizes so the "pops" centerpiece would look fuller and more appealing. I am also thinking of using white sprinkles for the top half of the pops. What do you think?
Since we had some Easter candy that perfectly reflected Mason's party colors, I put some at the base and I think it looks quite nice. I'll, of course, have to find a substitute closer to the party date though. I'm also thinking of wrapping washi tape around the middle of the cube with an elephant punch. So many ideas that you'll have to wait to see the party photos to see what I decided on. This insert can be used for pretty much anything you can put on a stick - fruit, gummy candies, cake pops, pie pops and even meatballs? I just love that you can also re-use these after a party as well as fill them with beautiful blooms for a gift.
Kenzie was most excited (after eating the marshmallow pops) to begin on her "art project". The My Monet Blumebox is perfect for children to let loose their creativity and imagination. This kit includes a plain white Blumebox and plastic liner with a set of crayons. Since Kenzie found another package of her crayons, she wanted to use those and went straight to coloring.
Your child can color on all four sides of the vase. After the "art" is complete, open the box and insert the plastic liner. Next, go outside (or to the store) and find some flowers to put in the vase (we found some lovely calla lilies). Kenzie helped fill up the liner and inserted the flowers. You then tuck the liner inside so it looks seamless and ready for gift giving.
Kenzie made this for her grandmother and even drew her portrait on the box. Granted it's a large head with large eyes and long stick legs - it's love. She can refill the Blumebox with flowers from her garden. Kenzie has one more My Monet Blumebox to color and send off to Florida grandma. She can fill with flowers from her garden as well. I love that these are really modern and fresh - just a handful of flowers from even the grocery store will look designer in the Blumebox!
The possibilities are endless and the end result is beautiful decor. There are various sizes according to how large you would like your centerpiece as well as accessories such as boas and ribbon. The boas would be fun for a bridal shower. I really like the Blumebud place card holders. I might have to get some for Kenzie's 4th birthday party if she keeps her current princess theme wish.
