DIY Spring Topiary

Mornings With Madge

Spring has finally arrived here in the Northeast, after taking an ill-timed vacation last week. With spring comes the inevitable flurry of wedding showers, baby showers, and soon wedding season will be upon us. If you’re looking for an inexpensive and easy way to dress up your party table, the topiary is a most charming option. We’ve given it a modern update using paper flowers, punched up pastels, and live moss. You can easily change this up to suit your style.
