Watch for these floats tomorrow morining in the Pasadena Rose Parade!!
I was born and raised in Pasadena and spent many years decorating the Rose Parade floats with our church youth group! What a FUN experience (except for the industrial strength glue that would never come off!) :)
While in Pasadena last week we went to one of the pavillions to see the volunteers decorating the floats for tomorrow's parade.. here are a few photos for you ... (image how heavenly it was to see all those roses in one place!) :)
Watch for this fun skateboarding doggie!
For items like the butterfly and flower below, they cover them mostly with seeds and these can be done many days or weeks ahead of time. All the live flowers go on last..
The people in the photo below are cutting the stems off the roses and putting them in the little vials of water before they go onto a float.
This is one of the float designers.. he usually rides a float with one of his gorgeous birds. I went over to take a photo of the bird, then found out who he was!
Have a wonderful and SAFE New Year's Eve... I'll be here conducting a stamping class! I'll share our project with you tomorrow or the next day!
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my blogging world friends! You mean so much to me!
