My husband's family is getting a new member, but before they can walk down the isle all the pre-wedding hoopla has to be taken care of. The first thing on the list was the shower. The Bride's family is like me when it comes to decorating for a party so my husband's aunt and grandmother wanted to make sure the food they brought was worthy of joining the other ladie's display. His grandmother was asked to bring muffins and the theme was brunch. We decided on this bouquet and it was a huge hit at the shower.
We baked two dozen muffins in a variety of flavors. The were baked in plain white muffin liners because I was afraid the oven would turn the flower liners brown. While they were baking, I washed a flower pot we found and placed a heavy rock in the bottom to make sure it wouldn't tip over from the weight of the muffins. I took a half circle of floral arranging foam and scooped out the center of the flat side with a spoon. I placed the foam over the rock and ran a bead of hot glue around the edge to secure it in place. I wrapped a rubber band two inches from the pointed end of 24 skewers. I poked the flat ends of the skewers into the foam like a bouquet of flowers. I placed the cooled muffins into the flower liners(the ones we used were made my wilton and availble at micheal's) and pushed them onto the pointed end of the skewers. I used wadded up tissue paper to cover the foam. Look how cute this is!
