Confirmation Party Picks & Center Piece

I made these party picks to put on the cupcakes served at my son's confirmation lunch.  At his request, he preferred the red velvet cupcakes and chocolate/cheese cake cupcakes instead of a large confirmation cake, so I decided to oblige him :)

I made the two different ones to differentiate between the two different flavours.  They must have been pretty good, because out of the 48 cupcakes I only had 6 left :)
The cupcakes were all placed in a cupcake holder which was used as a centre piece on one of the tables.  On the other table I used a floral centre piece that I bought at Party City.

This is what the package looked like .  It was perfect as the colours were silver and white.  However, I wanted to incorporate a little blue into it, so once I "fluffed" out the flowers, I used Tuxedo Memento Bahama Blue ink to sponge the edges.
This is what it looked like.  It came with 5 flowers and once they were all done I thought that the arrangement was very pretty but still needed a little something to make it more appropriate for a confirmation, so I went looking through my cricut cartridges and decided that this beautiful cross, put in the middle of the flowers, would add just the perfect touch.
It was very difficult to photograph this arrangement because both the blue and silver papers were very shiny.
The cross was cut at 5.5" from the Wedding Solutions Cartridge. I cut one in blue and then two in silver, one with the "flip" option, so that I could glue one to each side of the blue base cross. It looked very pretty, even if I do say so myself :)
Thank you for stopping by and for the wonderful comments that you leave. I do enjoy reading each and every one of them.
