I recently hosted another Crafternoon at my home!  A friend, who attended my last one, suggested that I plan a Mother Daughter event for the summer.  I thought that would be a fun idea, and I soon began thinking of a craft project that would be appropriate for both moms and their daughters…

With the recent popularity of succulent plants and the summer season, terrariums came to mind as the chosen project.   Each mother and daughter will create their own terrarium to take home and (hopefully) grow!

I set up for the terrarium-making on our sunporch…perfect in case we spilled some soil, which we did.

Each guest chose their container prior to the day of the Crafternoon.  Those vessels were awaiting each person when they arrived.

The rest of the supplies were set up on the table in buckets and containers…pebble stones, activated charcoal, succulent/ cactus soil, moss, succulent plants, and items for decorating the terrariums.

I printed step-by-step directions for putting together a terrarium and displayed them for everyone to see.

Once everyone arrived and caught up on each other’s summer fun, we headed to the porch to create terrariums.  They turned out so cute and each one looked different and unique!

I wish I had taken a group picture of all of them, but I forgot…so you’ll have to trust me when I say they looked so cute and colorful.

After the terrarium project was finished, the moms and daughters enjoyed a boxed lunch together.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing more about those boxed lunches.  Be sure to check back to find out what I put inside them and how they were packaged to go with the succulent theme of the day…
