Blooming Flowers

Aren't these flowers beautiful?? I love the combination of the pinks and green. I know, they aren't real, but I didn't think real ones would hold up too well in the Bathroom! I decided that the very white, very boring toilet in my craft room needed some fixing up. What would look better than a bouquet of flowers?
I honestly can't believe how cute it looks. It was a very quick project, I just covered the toilet with double sided tape, and put a card stock template on top of it. Then hot glued the flowers to the top. I must say, I think it looks darling. Do you think it would be too much to cover the tank and the top of the tank with flowers also?? Let me know what you think!
Have a lovely day.

UPDATE: After a lot of thought, I think you are all correct that I have plenty of flowers, and do not need to add anymore. I have a serious problem with moderation!!!

EEEEKKK!!!! I LOVE it Valarie!!! Who knew a toilet seat could look soooo pretty! What a fab idea!!! I personally think I would not decorate the upper tank part. Might be just a wee bit too much? Ya know? I would get a pretty scalloped vintage table runner/scarf, and lay it over the top of the tank. It will give it some color and "soften" the look a bit. Than, you can put small "pretties" on top of the runner. That's what I've done in my powder room. ;) Thanks for sharing! Adorable idea!!! :) XO,Jenn

Hey Valarie; I would never have thought to do that. And I have to say it does look so sweet. But now this is just my opinion, but I don't think any more flowers are necessary they would really over whelm the the commode. Maybe just a very pretty fabric on the to tank and a pitcher with some flowers in it or a box with shells, or what every,,,, but what ever you do it will be look just great, please share.

HI Valarie.. how adorable! I dont think I would have ever thought of that! I think I would probably not put more on the tank, but would decorate it with a doily of some sort and some little trinkets..
(ohh.. just read what the others wrote.. I think Jenn and I are on the same page here!)
have a sweet day Val!

Hi Valarie! I'm doing some blog hopping tonight and came across yours. Hope you don't mind my visiting. I love your new toilet seat! I think my hubby would kill me if I did that. But I love the way it looks. The colors are perfect!

Valarie, that is such a cute idea...i love it just how it is...i think covering the tank would be too much...and the effect would be lost...
