Just changed my mind on flowers!

Recommended Posts

My AHR is NEXT Saturday. My florist called me this morning and said that the prices on the flowers I had ordered were more expensive than we had thought. Normally this would have been a bad thing, but ever since my last meeting with her I kept thinking I wanted to have completely different flowers. So this morning I had her check on prices of big sunflowers and they were cheaper than my previous choice which was white roses and white gerber daisies! I got my inspiration from the picture below. My colors are chocolate brown and the same color blue as that plate. My vases are a little different than the norm (don't laugh..and yes I am a redneck) - I am taking all the labels off of Jack Daniel bottles (they are square bottles and actually very cool looking) and I am putting choc. brown ribbon around each bottle and then 1 single large sunflower...

Another thing I am really wanting to do is the "wish bowl".. I really like the 'make a wish, take a wish' idea that I found on the knot.. I havn't really started anything on that so I will wait and see how much, if any, time I have left when I get everything else done. I am such a procrastinator!!

I love the flowers and dontcha just love when it works out like that?

 

I never heard of "make a wish, take a wish". How does that work? I am going to have a "wish tree"...

It is the same take as a "wish tree". What you do with make a wish & take a wish is have one empty vase that people will write down and put their wishes in for you and then you can have another vase where you have written down wishes for others and they take a wish for themselves from that vase.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
