And we’re off…

Ok, it is really not that bad, but we are getting busy. As my sister explained on Friday, there is a lot going on at the ranch. My lovely niece Ashley is getting married and my nephew Belvy graduates from high school. Could not be a prouder Mimi (name Ashley gave me as a toddler). I can’t wait to see all the changes at the ranch!

I have a few projects I am currently working on for both the graduation and the wedding. As you can see, a corner of my office is starting to pile up. What you can’t see everything buried underneath those feathers and doilies are brooches, turquoise, beads, and all kinds of other goodies. So let me break down for you what you will be seeing in the near future as I tackle these projects.

Feathers, Doilies and more…oh my!

First the graduation, we went with a super hero theme. It is going to be a pool party ‘after party’ on the ranch. If you check our Pinterest board for Celebrations there is a section titled Graduations/Party Ideas. That is where you will find the ideas we are looking at. So we will have a photo area where we can get our hero look on. We will be buying and making decorations for the pool area. We will also have cinema decor as if it is a theatre and hopefully we will be showing a few movies. If you have any suggestions, please share. I have props to make so keep your fingers crossed! As I finish my projects I will pin them to our board.

The wedding is in October. This lovely Vintage 70’s Boho theme is going to be incredible. I have dream catchers and macramé on my list of things to do. A brooch bouquet is being made and jewelry for the bride. Hair pieces for the flower girls, and gifts from the bride are all on my list. And y’all there is more! We have joined up with the maid of honor and are doing the shower at my sister’s house in August. That means food and decorations are on us. And it is Mexican food…ole′!

Amber (my daughters best friend) is also getting married. Her ceremony will be in mid January. She is very special to me and is also know as my other daughter. I have the privilege of working on a little project for her too.

So to recap what is coming up, a graduation, wedding shower and two weddings. That is just for my Texas family right now. I also have projects of my own I will be sharing with you. So sit back, grab some popcorn and let’s get this party started.
