More Flower Arranging Pictures

My flower arranging skills improved ~ I made the bridal bouquet
We had a good time arranging flowers for the wedding.  Mom's dining room table was covered with silk flowers from JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby.  Then we added in fru fru stuff, ribbons, green floral foam, and baskets.  When all was done, we had completed 3 flower girl baskets, 2 bridesmaids bouquets and the brides bouquet.  I will be adding a bow and streamers to Katie's bouquet.

Left to do ~ boutonnieres for all the guys, flowers for the Mom's and grandma's.  Some type of floral arrangement for the sanctuary ~ maybe ferns or potted plants.  We know what we want for the reception tables, but those can't be assembled til that week.  I've got the tulle to make pew bows for the family rows.

Things are moving right along.  I am astonished at what we've accomplished this week.  We've been very productive and had lots of fun!


  1. Really lovely! I guess flower arranging is your gift after all. It is sometimes amazing what you can pull from the hat when you really need it. The flowers look wonderful and it sounds like you are all so busy, but with wonderful things. I'm thinking about you, and my prayer is that you will find what you need - at the first store!

  2. Thanks Kathleen! We did go to the 2 stores ~ one had the napkins and cups and then onto the fabric store!
