Bunting and Bouquets!

Well I am a little late with my post this week as yesterday was my daughter’s BIG DAY! I got carried away enjoying myself at the event and neglected to photograph the wonderful wedding bunting I made for her which I wanted to post a picture of  here! I did manage to find this on facebook taken by a guest though!

Now it’s all over  I am delirious with tiredness and looking forward to a couple of days of rest before starting to do anything at all,  so pictures will follow!

As well as making the bunting my daughter and I decorated all the table vases with ribbons and then bought the flowers and arranged these too on Saturday, the day before the BIG DAY!  After this I went home and made her bouquet and the bridesmaids’ bouquets, put them in water until 7.30am on the BIG DAY when I finished them 0ff with ribbon.  I love making things myself and we had a special mother and daughter day choosing, buying and making up the flower vases so much so that we wondered why anyone would pass up the opportunity and pay someone else to do it?  But I suppose if you don’t enjoy creating then it’s not fun, it’s a chore.

My mum had been asked to do a reading at the wedding to pass on some ‘words of wisdom’ to the newly weds as part of this she talked about the fashion for initials in today’s ‘textspeak’ – OMG and LOL for example, but pointing out that her generation had done it all before  with their ‘SWALK’ and ‘ITLY’ which they would write on the back of envelopes of letters to their boyfriends – (Sealed With A Loving Kiss and I Truly Love You).  She concluded by saying she had some of her own to pass to the newly weds  – ‘CEO’ – no not chief executive officer!  She said it was something to remember for the rest of their lives and also something for all of us  in any  relationship – ‘Cherish Each Other’ and then she presented them with a small plaque, made by guess who!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful day, and in a way it’s great that you were too busy enjoying the moment to be taking photographs.
    I agree that making things can only enhance the occasion, and provide even more wonderful memories 🙂

  2. How amazing to make all those things for the wedding, it must have been great for the happy couple to have so many personal touches on their special day. I think you definitely deserve to put your feet up for a few days.

  3. Sounds like a great day was had by all. Congratulations to the happy couple. Your bunting and plaque look lovely.

  5. How wonderful to be involved so much. I loved hearing about what your Mum said. It is true – we never really invent anything new. it sounds as if you had a wonderful time. I hope that you have recovered a bit 😉
