So on Easter when the family got together, my husband and I gave the bouquet to my mom and she was BLOWN AWAY! We pretty much literally knocked her socks off (pun intended! :D) She just kept going on about how awesome the bouquet looked and how much time I spent on such a neat gift for her! 🙂 She’s adamant that she’s not taking it apart for a while. lol she’s got 14 complete pairs of socks that didn’t have a mate that made it into the bouquet and she’s decided that’s more then good for her until she’s had her fill of showing it off to friends. 😀
I’m soooo thrilled with her reaction!!! 😀
A few more pictures from Easter when I gave it to my mom (no particular order):
And for anyone interested in seeing the socks used:
So anyway, Easter and my sock bouquet was a huge success! 🙂

@hyperJulie: Thank you!! It was fun to make. 🙂
@hopefloats: Me too!! That was the best part of the day for me! 😀
@AlwaysSunny: Thank you!
@allyfally: Thank you!
@HeMadeMeWantTo: Hehe I love socks too! They are just so much fun to wear. My niece loves doing the mismatched thing as well. 😀 I was joking with my mom that she should adopt that method if she plans on keeping the bouquet intact for a long period of time. That way she can have fun with ALL the socks and not just 14 pairs of them. lol
@globalmargaret: Thank you me too!!! hehe, my mom has a gorgeous ring, and I tend to look at the same thing. 😀
