That was the whole theme of the Public Allies Graduation. I was wondering what it all meant the other day as I was making these arrangements, now I know! They asked for suggestions on how to decorate on a budget. I offered up all my available resources and then suggested some Martha Stewart pomanders that would cost them all of $20 to make. They made them and did a really good job of placing them in bright vibrant colors throughout the reception hall. They even broke apart my arch and added them to the bamboo. Pretty cool and affordable :)
