Well, it’s happening again!  Another daughter getting married, which means we’re spending another exciting summer planning a wedding!  It’s only been two years since our last wedding so some things are still fresh in my mind.  However, because my girls have different styles, this wedding will also have a different style.  Just when I thought I had it all figured out…. But, that’s OK, I like learning and figuring out new things…..sometimes.

This wedding is going to be ALL about the flowers!  Lots of beautiful flowers!  Simple, elegant and beautiful. 

Of course, her first stop was Pinterest, where she found a zillion decorating ideas.  My first stop after seeing those ideas was  We had such a wonderful experience with our last wedding, my daughter and I couldn’t wait to get online to check out their selection.  We found SO many amazing flowers in exactly the colors she was looking for!  

Beautiful, Simple and Elegant!  Thanks!

We’re having a sit-down meal for the reception and need a simple but elegant centerpiece for the tables.  Lots of tables mean lots of centerpieces so we also need to be budget conscious.

Lay runner down center of table 

Place individual stems of Eucalyptus down center of runner, alternating between Seeded and Silver Dollar (or lay out garland)
