Tuesday's Tip - Cheap wreath forms!

Here is a great idea! Buy some foam tubing in the plumbing department and use it as a wreath form! Just duct tape it to the size you want!

I found this on Pinterest, via The Penny Parlor
p.s I don't know if that was in the US or Canada but it cost her .97 cents for 6 feet!

Make it Monday : Pumpkin Wreath

Remember this cute wreath?!
I made my own this weekend. It was so easy. All you need is a wreath, hot glue and mini pumpkins. Here's how mine turned out!!

I love it! I will have to show you the rest of my fall decor soon. I am not quite done. My goal this year was to decorate the upstairs as well, I never have done that always ends up in the living room and the kitchen, so I will let you know how that goes!!! Stay tuned!

Make It Monday: SUCCULENTS!

Last week I said I wanted to add some succulents to my home! I  had to decide what to put them in! Here's what I found:
I filled them with rocks

and then dirt
Then went to town!!
I added some rocks on the top. What do you think?
A cute succulent in a tea cup

This one was a little harder to do..I couldn't really fit my hand in the vase very well. There was dirt all over the place!! and I had already put one in the little silver cup
And I already had this one too. It looks a little sad..maybe it is too big for that cup?

Anyway I love them!! And I really love the fact that I can't kill them! hahahahah
Do you have succulents in the house?!

Good Morning guys! I thought I would show you this:

Oh man! The time has gone by so fast! It just feels like we were apple picking and Mike purposed! Everything has gone very smoothly! (The only really issue we had were the invitations...they were definitely a pain in the butt, but I think they turned out OK so it was worth it...and for that to be the only thing, I think that is pretty good!) 

There is still some stuff left to do:

* Pick up dress from alterations and hope it still fits! hah
* Meet with the photographer to talk about pictures we want and how the day will lay out.
* Book and go do a hair trial! ( I still haven't done that! yikes!)
* Meet with the officiant and talk about the type of ceremony we want
* Buy gifts for the bridal party
* Confirm the meal with the caterers

I think that is all the main stuff I have to do before a few days before the wedding.....It still seems like a lot! hahaha....Wish me luck!!
