craft night in boise...


...craft night at our house getting ready for the wedding... matt transplanting the succulents and cacti into terra cotta pots for the summer fiesta and I am cutting circles for this adorable garland...in front of the bachelorette and a glass of wine.
...and the dogs doing their dog thing...
...this is the garland I am making. It will be amy butler turquoise/green fabric puff flowers, turquoise puffs, white puffs, and green puffs all strung on a thread.Maybe this will be hanging on the banister in the lodge... or maybe behind us at the ceremony? maybe even over the porch overhang outside next to the food buffet tables? yet to be determined... but puffs are made.
 ...these dried curly willow branches and dried flowers/wheat will be used in a wreath- bough above our heads in the corral for our ceremony. we got these at michaels...great selection of dried real flowers, instead of going the fake route or worrying about wilting flowers...
...and these ugly black buckets will be spray painted white tomorrow by me for our haybale laden aisle for the ceremony. We will be purchasing some nice green shrubbery from home depot a few days before the wedding...(ahh!!! thats next week!!!) to plant in the buckets. But these were cheap, $2.99 each at Hobby Lobby... we were quite pleased, and saved a bunch of money compared to the galvanized buckets I really wanted that were $8 each... and who would really notice? Probably just me. But I will let you know afterwards what little details I wish I could do over, and which were just perfect and unique...and simple...
