July's Goodwill Project involved planting flowers in a bunch of random things that I picked up from Goodwill Akron on Waterloo. If you haven't been there, GO!!! I usually spend at least 4 glorious hours in there because there is SO MUCH STUFF. Plus, the Goodwill outlet is right next door. Double the thrifting madness!!
I'll share a few "after" pictures of one planter if you promise to go check out the others on the Goodwill Industries of Akron Blog.
Eeeny, meeny, miny, moe...
...ceramic Pfaltzgraff bundt dish is what you get!
Cute, but looks a little teeny tiny on the table all by itself...
...until you add in 4 adults, 5 kids, 85 plates of food, and some condiments.
Any bigger and that platter of meat and cobs may have required their own table.
Quick shout out to the girl working at the garden center who 1) didn't think I was crazy when I told her I was planting flowers in a bundt pan, and 2) so smartfully recommended flowers that grow upward instead of ones that would fall over onto the table... or onto the cobs and kebabs.
Cobs and Kebabs -- say that 5 times really fast. Perfect title for a country song! Or rap song? Florida Georgia Line and Nelly, have at it!
I may have lost focus there for a sec, but I didn't forget our pinky swear promise. Off you go... Goodwill Industries of Akron Blog.
*I received several compliments on my cleverness and smartness that I simply can't accept. This bundt pan planter was inspired by several that I saw on Pinterest, specifically this one that unfortunately has no source. So, to the person who made this red bunt pan planter -- you is kind, you is smart, you is important... and you is clever!
