….and we had a sweet table.

Last Friday, I promised that I would share how to get a really dirty tub clean. You know, the kind that hasn’t been cleaned in years and you don’t know who has been in it. The kind where you demo the shower door and there is all sorts of treasures underneath. Well, I had planned on posting that “how to” today. I usually plan my posts out for the week each weekend. There is one little problem. I misplaced my phone. My phone has the pictures. So plan B was another post on my guest bathroom. I sat down ready to post and then I realized I left the camera in the car the Hubs has today. We went to a wedding this weekend and I took the camera. My job has me working really late tonight so that post would get out today if I waited until I got home….so plan c. Thanks for being flexible. Everyday in the summer, at work, I am surrounded by 400 kids age 7-13 and about 130 college-aged staff. I am sorry I might be a little sporadic. While there is no way around being a little sporadic for three months know that my goal is to be consistent. I don’t want to neglect my faithful readers by not posting or giving poor content. So please bear with me, I am so sorry.
So Plan C’s post is inspired by my recent trip to Arkansas for a wedding. I realized I had not finished a few posts about the wedding that I decorated a few months ago. It was a lot of work, a lot of fun, and it proves you can do a lot with a little money and a lot of help. Todays topic: The flowers.
I want to apologize for promising the Laundry Room Reveal but never delivering. It's almost done I promise!!!!! The reason why it is taking so long because I am decorating my first EVER wedding. The sweet bride (who is a good friend) is taking a chance on my DIY decorating skills. She is having a wedding THIS October and she has given me $500.00 to decorate her ceremony AND reception. I will tell you that I am not doing flowers. I am working with the florist so my $500 dollars doesn't include flowers. BUT…the only flowers she is having (as decor) two taller arrangements up front and a few small arrangements on the aisles. That is it. Did I mention that the guest list is 350 people? I am up for the challenge and I have my plan and I have been searching for deals to make it happen. After this wedding is over I will have an entire wedding week of posts of how I made it all happen “on the cheap”. Here is a preview of where she is having the reception:
This is the bistro area before you go into the reception. This will have little Bistro tables. The cost of the venue gets you table cloths (whew). Here is the where the actual reception happens:
I don't have a pic of the church but its your typical church. White and brown. I have a blank slate but am not allowed to hang anything on the walls. Time to improvise. I have some tricks up my sleeve. Her colors are brown, orange and green. This color palate do
esn't translate we
ll to old hollywood theater so only elements of that theme will show up in the reception. The ceremony is where most of my creativity will get to run wild. Here is a sneak peek:
This is not the only one I will use…there are more in my trunk.
There are also more of these
I have 40 of these….yes 40 but I got them for a steal. More on that…
This was my favorite steal. I have 10 yards of it for $2.00 a yard.
So if you are wondering what I am up to…this is it…well, and finishing the laundry room.
