Wedding Preparations!

What a busy day! Together with two of my daughters and my step-grand-daughter we planted 100 hens and chicks (succulent plants) and tied little raffia bows onto each pot. These will be gifts for the guests and placed at each place setting. Then we attacked the paper mache balloons (I made these on my first posting)–we hot glue gunned ribbon loops and silk flowers all over the balls (these will be hung on iron shepherd’s hooks which form the aisle). We ran out of filler flowers so will pick some up tomorrow at the dollar store. Next we tied ribbons around 100 little bundles of lavender which will be placed on each guests napkins. Finally we worked on the arbor which we will have to finish tomorrow or the next day. Whew….I’m tired! 5 more days to go……will I make it….!?



That is me under the striped hat....no sunburn for me...

So much to do for a wedding! I think your ideas are very nice; the pots with the plants look really cute and lavender is something SO lovely.

We don't have a plant in the UK called Hens and Chicks, so when I read the first bit you can imagine how my mind was working.

Your flower balls look great too. There's so much organising to do for a wedding isn't there? I bet you can hardly wait for the actual day now.

I remember Weddings like that from Kenya where everyone landed in to help prepare the garden as everything was held in the garden, service and reception. Hard work but wonderful memories all round. Just remind your video/photographer not to step backwards into the pond...if you have one...it kinda disrupts proceedings...
