Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

Holidays are now history, celebrations are done with, and hubby has had his back surgery and is recovering nicely.

So now it’s crunch time. Trying to get everything done for the wedding of  our youngest daughter, is our focus for now.

The key to preparing for such an occasion is to save money wherever  you can.

So I decided to use artificial flowers for boutonnières, centerpieces and the bouquets, except for the bride, she will get fresh flowers.

Time for the rush of trying to beat the deadlines for having things done.

Boutonnières are finì and I love the colors that our daughter chose for the wedding.



Centerpieces are half done, but they are not complicated so they won’t take too long to finish them.

And the bridesmaids bouquets are being worked on at the moment.

I’m hoping to get all this finished by the middle of February.

Wish me luck.

Oh dear, I still have to shop for my dress!

Update, I found my dress. ♥♥♥♥
