Topiary Update

Back in January I finally splurged and bought two topiaries at Michael's. You can read my greenery post here.


Well, I have been enjoying them on my mantel the last few months. I've posted several different pictures of my mantel, like this one.


My last trip to Target I found these adorable Smith and Hawken Boxwood Topiaries with some little white berries, but for $29.99 each they were definitely out of my price range.

One day while I was shopping at Tai Pan I came across a little greenery for $.79.


I decided this would be perfect to add to my topiaries. So I cut off the little white flower buds.


I randomly placed them on my topiaries - I didn't bother gluing them either. Don't they look like blooming boxwood topiaries now.


I grabbed a couple Dollar Spot silver buckets while I was at Target and figured they would make perfect plant holders.


Now my topiaries look a little more "springy" for the mantel.
