My husband and I decided to host our second wedding in our lush backyard. I love vintage and refurbished items. I also love bold colors and a mix of blooms. I found an old four-poster head board at a thrift store for $5, painted it and added flowers, foliage and origami hearts to use as a ceremony backdrop.
I had those two old chippy doors in my house as decor. I dragged them out along the fence and added fresh flowers. The ladder was actually my husband's grandfather, who was a house painter. I had the bike (yes I actually ride that!) and the basket.
We did a lot of with origami hearts, tulle and backyard flowers. Instead of a conventional wedding cake, I bought a sheet cake with a wildflower design and made a bride and groom doll to sit beside it.
This wedding was a lot of fun to plan! Affordable, fun with a lot of crafty flair. Thank you for looking!
Fluffy and I visited the Mississippi River and the Mill City Ruins in downtown Minneapolis.
Minneapolis sprung up along the river. Settlers harnessed the power of the river to run giant flour mills. Several "ruins" of those old mills have been found and will be part of a park one day. You can see the ruins from atop the Stone Arch bridge which crosses the river.
I work in a skyscraper in downtown Minneapolis. I showed Fluffy the view ! The building with the green roof is Minneapolis City Hall. It's on the national historic register. It was built from 1888 to 1909 in the Richardsonian Romanesque style.
Fluffy has been an indispensable help actually. He has helped me plant some petunias for our backyard bohemian wedding. He has helped me fold a ton of origami hearts. He even pulled out his monocle to check out the rings. Love is in the air
