Well, it's official today is the first day of fall! I really love this season, the weather changes, I want to make soup for dinner, things are a bit quieter around here and of course I love the decorations that come and can stay around until Thanksgiving. Here are some pictures of my decorations that I put up week before last and am enjoying! I also had to celebrate with some pumpkin bread today (of course I had to add some chocolate chips to help my chocolate craving) something really fallish just had to be made!

These are my 'country fair' silent auction purchase, I always like to bid on something each year at Hume Lake's Country Fair and these were calling me. Growing up mom always had some kind of cool (I don't know that I thought they were cool then) Pilgrim thing, so I thought I would carry on the tradition. They are pretty cool (I think) they're made out of wood if you look closely at the bottom of then you can see the wood grains. I also like that they're larger than life.
What do you like about fall?

The Wedding Flowers!!

Well here they are, the much anticipated photos from the big wedding last weekend. Not sure if this will ever become a career, but so far it's a fun hobby. For those of you that don't know I did the flowers for Emily Lilley & Cody Mooney's wedding that was here at Hume on the 6th. It was a beautiful wedding with so many fun personal touches, they put in a lot of hard work and it paid off! Hope you enjoy the photos!

This was the jar that went down the aisle, it was a large mason jar with jute attached that hung on fence posts that Jeff built...pretty cool!

Above are the girls bouquets, they were just baby's breath it looked so pretty against the bright terra-cotta/melon color of their dresses. I don't have another picture of the bouquets, but I'm going to try to get one from the photographer. Below is the fridge where I kept everything, it was amazing how packed it got with flowers! So many flowers!!

Here are the centerpieces...I really liked how they came out!

Here is one of the tables, Eugenie made all of the napkins...they were really pretty! I think it came together, the burlap, the flowers, the candles, the jars which had a sticker with their all looked so good!

This was a pair of ceramic boots that was in the center of the food buffet, it came out nice...and all out of leftoever flowers! Amazing!

For Peter's 1st birthday mom and dad took us to the zoo, it was a very fun day! I think Peter liked the people and attention more than the animals, but at least he had a good time! Here are a few of the shots from our day.

Tired from a full day, he did take a great nap for about an hour of the afternoon!
