May Day / Mother's Day Flower Idea

My sweet daughter and I just had to pick some of our gorgeous backyard roses and bring them inside to enjoy. We selected the biggest pinkest blossoms we could find. And, of course, our pinkest vase. And also a pretty pink ribbon to match:
I decided to dress our flower vase up with a May Day idea - a green tag that reads "May God Bless Your May Day!" I printed the words with a green background design, then layered the paper onto some thin cardboard to make it stiff. With two small holes punched, it fit nicely onto the ribbon, which was wrapped around our square vase twice:
A simple touch like this would be lovely for Mother's Day, too!
