On the hunt for my daughter's PANDA PAJAMA PARTY, I decided: decorate with bamboo! This led me back to my local flower market--that huge warehouse with vendor after vendor of all matters flora and fauna.
Mission accomplished: I found miniature stalks of bamboo and anchored them in cups of water with the strangest little squishy balls. Can you see them in the above picture? Imagine food-colored tapioca pearls. They worked! Bamboo stood at attention!
Today I am thankful for Odd Inventions that make my life easier.
