4. A great idea…include a hand towel with your bouquet delivery so the bridal party can wipe up any dribbles before they reach the fronts of their dresses…

  1. I want to know how they delivered that chandelier! It was amazing.

  2. Botanique says:

    Yay for the growing cutting garden! I have been doing some serious planning for mine this year… but did not get the chance to sow any seeds last fall, so there are no sweet seedlings to watch right now 🙁

    Love seeing how yours has grown over the past few months!

  3. anastasia says:

    the 1, 2, 3 punch of that chandelier process makes it look magically easy. no big deal, right? ha!

  4. Love to see work in progress too. Some gorgeous roses in that first picture! Wonder where they came from?

  5. ok , Fjura is in Australia, they are lucky to get such pretty roses.
    Great progress on the cutting garden, may the critters stay away!

  6. oh my word…that chandelier!!!!!

    i got a TON of bulbs / seedlings at costco last night – they had dahlias, peonies, ranunculus, anemones, astilbe- all of my favorites really – now I just have to figure out how and where to plant them! As much as I love cut flowers I know nothing about gardening!!!
