Hi Ladies,


This is my latest DIY.

I'm making our boquets out of fabric.  Each flower is hand sewn.  I've mastered about 10 different flowers.  I've been hunting for fabric reminents in any fabric within the white, offwhite and beige color scheme, at every JoAnne Fabrics I pass for months. I feel like the color combination and fabric differences really add to the depth of the boquet. Some flowers have beads, some do not.  It's quite the project but I just love how they are turning out.  I researched many different ways to construct the boquet and after countless trial and errors what ended up working was foam balls from Michaels, hot gluing a wood pick to each flower and sticking them into the foam ball.  Then I stuck a 12" wood dowel into the base of the ball and used heavy duty wires rapped in scraps of green fabric around the dowel to create an appearace of stems.  Anyway here's a so so I phone picture of the first finished boquet.  I used about 60 flowers for this boquet so I've been busy making flowers because I have 6 bridesmaids, a flower girl, 10 bouts and 2 corsages to make. I'll try to post more pics as I get further along.  If anyone is iterested in finding out more details just ask.

    • 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.
