Jelly Bean Flower Vase...

For both of my showers, I made a Pink and White Jelly Bean flower vase. This is so easy and it really gives your table setting a big "bang"!
To make it all you have to do is get two vases, one being a little smaller than the other. I purchased mine at the great store.... Hobby Lobby! You insert the smaller one into the larger one at the store to make sure that you have room for Jelly Beans to go all around it. If it is shorter don't worry, you can put Jelly Beans in the bottom to lift it up. When you get home place the vases into position inside one another adding Jelly Beans in the bottom to make sure that the lip of both of the vases are close to being at the same level. After this you want to fill Jelly Beans in between the two vases all the way to the top! I am sure that you can do this with other types of candy easy, I just like the Jelly Bean idea and it has lasted for four weeks in great condition!
For one shower I was able to cut and use the snowballs from my garden. My last shower the peonies were blooming beautifully in my garden and the dark pink and white worked well!
I hope you try this idea.... Simple and Beautiful!

I loved this idea! A friend did this at Easter with bright colored jelly beans and lillies. It was so beautiful. Glad you had a wonderful time!
