My daughter April is getting married this friday the day after Thanksgiving. She is marrying Mike, and he is a wonderful guy and I believe he has the patience of a Saint. Its always nice to have a new family member in time for the Holidays :)
April asked me to make her flowers. I have made many of the fabric flowers in various styles, but have used them more as embellishments. I am not a floral designer at all, BUT I took the project on. We were looking online and saw some pretty things, but they were about $250.00 for the bridal bouquet. I was being rather full of myself and saying that I may be in the wrong business. Well, let me tell you, they earn that money! This was very labor intensive, it took hours. And not only that, I do not have the temperment to work with Brides, so I will be keeping my day job after all :) . I know its your very special day, you are spending ALOT of money and deserve everything to be just as you have imagined it since you were a little girl. It takes a very special person to work on the other end of that scenario though, and I am not it! lol In the end though, I am happy with them, and more important April is happy with them.
She is going with more of a nature theme, birds, birdhouses, twigs and the such. Instead of a traditional ring bearer pillow she is using a birdnest. :) They will have the traditional Unity candle and will be lighting one for my grandson Mikey too. I love this idea. (By the way, we seem to have an over abundance of Michaels in our family and it keeps things interesting and funny) So, here is a sneak peak at what I have been up to this last week.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, I am wishing ya all good health, happiness and peace in your Home.
