The making of the Earth Day arrangements

We’ve been working on these arrangements for the longest. We started off first with buying 30 cream soda bottles, 30 Hanes cans soda and 30 tomato and bean cans. Let me tell you i will not be drinking creme soda for a very long time, i am so tired of it. We spray painted all the bottles and cans matte white they looked real nice. On Sunday afternoon I arrived to Margaretha house to do the succulents arrangements with her and Angela. We made many different kinds in the tomato sauce cans and ended up completing all 30 that evening. On Monday Sophia, Vanesa and I came back to Oakland to finish the other 60 arrangements. Margaretha that morning went to the flower mart around 4 a.m. and picked out a range of beautiful greenery and star flowers for us to use in the arrangements. We got a lot of help and it took us all day to finish but they came out very stunning. We even made little sticks that stated words involving earth day and our Bloom Justice logo on the back. They came out better then we expected and it took a lot of labor work but it was all worth it getting all those complements at the Mayors Earth Day breakfast. Hope they enjoyed it as much as we did.
