Now the weather has changed and the leaves have begun to fall in earnest, our boys have begun to dream of summer. I think that’s pretty natural when surrounded by stacks of text books, assignment deadlines, and test dates. The size of the dream is perhaps a measure of their workload, because these boys are dreamin’ big! There’s a church summer camp, a week-long Boy Scout trip to the mountains, and a mission trip on their wish lists. Together, they need to raise over $4,000.That’s an awful lot of leaves to rake or Christmas lights to hang at $6 an hour! So they’ve decided to branch out–diversify their portfolio. They’re marketing mistletoe!
Together, we devised an attractive arrangement idea:
The mistletoe fits snugly into a small reservoir of moisture–known as a “water pic” in the floral industry. And we added some hemp twine and ribbon to make it more festive. It even comes with a thin loop of twine for hanging.
Mistletoe clusters are available for sale through my Etsy shop, or you can order than locally through my Facebook page.
Something tells me that my guys will not be anxious to be caught beneath the mistletoe this year, at least not by adoring aunts, grandmothers, and especially their mother!
