Wedding Dress Try On Party

Love is in the air! The wedding plans are under way and we've been busy making lists and figuring out what needs to be done when.

Tonight my daughter tried on dresses. She found a site that lets you order sample dresses which they then send to your home for you to try on. This suits her better as she wants a simpler dress than what she found in the bridal stores. She decided to make a party out of it and invited her bridal party over to see her choices!

The decorations were love inspired: cute cherubs,

A table runner from Target's Spot with hearts on the end!


some Mercury glass type candle holders for bling,

And"love" wine charms also from Target:

We had lots of food - yummy Mex Tex Chicken Melts, hot pizza dip with pita chips, spinach salad with strawberries and balsamic dressing, and other goodies,

And Autumn Apple Sangria , a recipe we found on Pinterest - we wanted to try it out to see if it was wedding worthy. It was delicious so it made the cut!

We had fun seeing her dress choices. She's narrowed them down to two - which one will she pick? She decided she needed to sleep on it and maybe try them on again tomorrow. She said she'd let me know.

Either way, which ever one she chooses, she's going to be beautiful!


  1. Such a lovely event! And such a hard decision for Megan. Either way she's going to be beautiful!

    1. It was really fun. I know some girls love all the attention they get at the bridal stores but it just stresses Meg out. This was perfect.

  2. What a fun idea! I know you are loving this process. :)

  3. Such a novel idea. Must have been a lot of fun. The food sounds so good.

  4. Great idea for a special way of celebrating the bride. I'm tucking this away for future reference.

  5. Oh Cecilia what an exciting time. OMG I love this idea of them sending you the dresses to try at home and having a special and very personal get together for this. This is just awesome. My youngest daughter that is not married but has a serious boyfriend might be getting engaged soon so I am going to keep this in mind. I am always looking for a good Sangria recipe so I will pin this one.

  6. What a fun way to celebrate the dress choosing with friends and family...I love it! Enjoy your special times!

  7. How fun! What a wonderful way to celebrate this special occasion! Your table is lovely and wow--what a great website!

  8. What a totally fun idea! & great way to find the perfect dress. The Sangria sounds so good, just thinking about apples and the spices that go with them, yum. Enjoy all the planning!

  9. So pretty and everything sounds and looks yummy! What a cool idea to have dresses sent to your home to try. That is awesome! Sort of like Stitch Fix for brides! I know you are enjoying every second of this time. Such a sweet time in her life and yours. Have a lovely rest of the week!

    Hugs, Vicky

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Color Me Happy - Adding Color Back To The House

I've enjoyed our new colorful living room so much.
 The touches of red, green and blue really bring the room to life.

It made me realize that trying to do neutral wasn't me even though I love the look in other people's homes. Therefore, I have embarked on a mission to add color back into my house.

I already had the red pillows and red plaid placemats for the dining area. I also made the red plaid curtain this past year.  My wall is full of colorful pictures and art.

 I found the flowers on clearance at JoAnn's. Yay for clearance! It will be fun to have different colorful looks for the seasons.

For the kitchen, I decided to add colorful plates and what's more perfect than Fiestaware?  I have very fond memories of my mom's turquoise set especially the tea pitcher and salt & pepper shakers.

I knew there was a vendor at the Canton First Monday Trade Days that sold Fiestaware. I had bought a red pitcher a couple of years back. So in July, dinner plates came home…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…
