Recently, I made several table centerpieces for my cousin's baby shower. They came out so great I had to share. To make the chocolate ribbon roses I used a tutorial I had designed years ago for Valentine's Day. However, instead of using just one color ribbon I used two.
I made a total of twelve chocolate ribbon roses for each centerpiece. I added the roses and greenery into mason jars. Helpful Hint: I used recycled mason jars. We eat Classico Spaghetti Sauce that always comes in large mason jars. I never throw them out I just rinse and save them.
To finish the centerpiece I attached ribbon around the mason jar and added a sheer bow. I made my sheer bows by using my Mini Bowdabra. All the ribbon I used can be purchased at Bowdabra's Ribbon Crafts & Things Store. I found the little pink bird clips at a Michael's Craft Store. The bird's had little alligator clips that I just attached to the front of the bow.
These centerpieces not only worked great for a baby shower but I think would look great at an Anniversary Party, Wedding Reception, Sweet 16 Party, or other formal gatherings.
