It has been a couple of months since my last post as you can see - so what have I been up to you ask? Well for starters a wedding shower, rehearsal dinner and wedding. which went beautifully. The bride was beautiful and the groom looked very handsome - they both were smiling the whole day.
Now we have a daughter-in-law the newest family member AND a son-in-law both of which we love very much and are welcomed additions to our family. So now both of our kids are happily married.
Above is a couple of pics from the rehearsal dinner. This is the table setting at which the actual practice ceremony took place. The colors for the wedding were purple and grey - so I kept that theme for the dinner as well. I will have a tutorial for the table runner in a post later this month, so check back to see that.
Then the surprise birthday party - which was quite a feat
trying to keep it a surprise! We succeeded in that endeavor as well -
DH had no idea that this was all going on behind his back LOL. With only 3 weeks to set everything up after the wedding we all were very busy indeed.
He enjoyed himself very much and was totally surprised. The trick is
to just go about the normal everyday activities that one does AND get
help from the kids to do some of the set up and preparation. They did a
great job setting up and everything looked fantastic.
Now it is time to think about the holidays which are fast approaching.
