Spring Break Project #1

I have to say I love "Spring Break" especially when I'm not desperately trying to finish a dissertation :)  So far I've gotten to spend fun time with my families!!! and now am starting some of my to-do list (while I procrastinate a little on my work to-do list)  So here is the first project:
The before picture!
I love this little arrangement.  I got it in Baton Rouge and it was perfect to add a little soft touch to a rather drab apartment.  I looked good in my new house until I found the perfect rug for the entry way.  Then it clashed! and every time I walked by my eye screamed something was off.  I thought I would have to replace it, and then I realized it had a foam center, so I decided to swap some flowers and ribbons instead. 
The after pictures!
My dear mom helped me pick flowers out and then I went to work!  (Now my mom is amazing with flowers, and has always made stuff for me....including all my wedding pics)  I've watched and helped her, but never tried on my own.  So this time I tried on my own, knowing I could run to her for help if I made a disaster.  I'm quite pleased with myself and feel like the colors work so much better now!

The after pictures!
