"A truly special teacher is very wise, and sees tomorrow in every child's eyes." ~ Author Unknown
At the close of the school year, I like to surprise our elementary school teachers with flowers presented in a container they can reuse after the flowers fade.
This year I filled monogrammed pitchers with lemons -- some sliced, some halved and others left whole.
When I was satisfied with the floral arrangement, I tucked more lemons into the pitcher to fill it the rest of the way.
To keep this gift economical, I picked up glass and acrylic pitchers at a discount store and took them to a local engraving shop to be monogrammed. They turned out beautifully, so I will keep this option in mind for wedding and birthday gifts.
