BONUS SHAVUOT DECORATING IDEAS:

http://www.chabad.org/theJewishWoman/article_cdo/aid/2934949/jewish/Decorative-Flower-Garland.htm - Decorative Flower Garland - "I love decorating my home with flowers for Shavuot. It reminds us of when G‑d gave us the Torah on beautiful Mount Sinai, which He lavishly decorated with flowers. I usually fill all the vases with my favorite picks and place the vases all over my home. This year, I wanted to do something different, and I decided the tissue paper garlands that I see everywhere could be easily adapted for the holiday."
