Friday Five

We had a very nice Christmas.  Low key, but truthfully a bit crazy when the grandgirlies were here.  The three year old is in a testing stage - "Do you really mean what you say...everytime?"  She's darling and will come through it, as they all do.

1. I got this book I've been wanting to read!  It is "The Other Side Of The Coin," by Angela Kelly.  Miss Kelly is the head dresser for the Queen.  I'm enjoying it very much!

2. Any guesses as to whose stocking this is?

3. Yesterday, I worked on wedding florals.  Sneak Peek at the bridal bouquet. 

4. The groom's boutonniere

5. Groomsmen's boutonniere.

The bridesmaids are only having greens and baby's breath so the groomsmen are matching that.  They've turnout so beautifully.  I'm very happy about it!

I'm off to put garlands up and on tables, to help with the layout of tables etc.  This evening is the rehearsal dinner, and tomorrow mid morning is the wedding.  

This wedding is my son in law's brothers' wedding.  These young adults have grown up around our home, and it is a delight to me to be a part of making their weddings special.  My son in law, Joseph is in the wedding, and so is Rachel's fiance Weston.

I'll try to get photos along the way.  

Happy Weekend!


  1. The book and the stocking . . . so you!! I am glad that your Christmas was merry! The flowers are gorgeous! That will be a pretty wedding . . . can't wait to see some pics!

  2. I find it fascinating that the wedding venue is a greenhouse. What an interesting idea! It will be a beautiful wedding.

    And that book looks so interesting. Post a review when you finish it, won't you?

  3. Beautiful! Love the roses...hope to see more photos!

  4. Love the stocking, I bet the book was in it. Beautiful flowers AS ALWAYS:) I love a wedding! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. Your flower creations are beautiful, simple and lovely. Hope you have a great weekend.
