18 Jun bouquet redo
My daughter was just in a friends wedding. Hannah and Kristy have been friends since high school and Kristy is the first of the group of friends to get married – just doesn’t seem possible. I know….I’m getting old, don’t remind me.
For the favors Kristy took mason jars, added chalkboard labels to them and attached a tag thanking everyone for coming and letting them know that they could take the glasses home as a souvenir. These were set at every table setting and were our water glasses for the evening.
The bouquets were beautiful. Kristy had chosen roses, tulips, thistles and succulents. Hannah not only ended up with her bridesmaid bouquet but she also caught the bouquet so she was lucky enough to come home with two of them. We thought the perfect memento of this event would be to combine the two items. Once all the flowers had finally died in the bouquets we removed the succulents and planted them in the mason jar. This way Hannah can be reminded of this special day for years to come. Plus she can add different messages on the chalkboard label whenever the mood strikes.
I couldn’t resist sharing this photo of my boys form that evening. They all decided to dress alike in white suits for the wedding but to each put their own spin on it. You have the oldest who wore loafers with no socks and a bright tangerine braided belt for a pop of color, the next youngest who got the same jacket but was the smartest of the bunch since he wore shorts to the outdoor wedding that was 111 degrees (seriously, no joke, 111!), and the youngest who wore his vans with his suit (he’s also the same son who graduated the day before and who even though he was giving the closing prayer in front of everyone wore dress vans and mismatched socks – oy vey). Gotta love em though
