I've spent a great deal of time coming up with ideas or changing some I've already seen to fit our look. I'm really pleased with the result so far, and I can't wait to see it all come together. I've been able to spend a lot of time with my mom, which I'm very grateful for! Jordan has folded more tissue paper poms than I could imagine! What a trooper! The whole process (so far) has been quite an adventure!
We definitely made our mark with the spray paint. The whole neighborhood smelled of fumes! It's the ultimate "cover all."
Bless him. My little tissue folder. Clearly, he's had enough!
Picking out fabric for centerpieces. Mom is so much more thorough than I am!
What would we do without Lowes?!?
Mason jars for $7? Check! That was a find! Most places don't sell them cheaper than $10 for 12. They are exactly a pint. How fitting for the beer!
These little beauties will be cornucopias of peaches & hydrangeas! Lovely!
Toying with the initial look.
The start of the wedding chandelier! Picture this guy with little crystals and some flowers wound around it. Love it! It will be lit up for the ceremony. :)
