Happily Ever After - Wedding At The B Farm


We dreamed big dreams for making the farm the perfect wedding spot and worked hard to make it come true.
The Ceremony Spot
On the day of the wedding the weather was perfect and the Spot dressed up

pathway to the Spot marked with streamers and with a table set up for the wildflower seeds

The tent pitched and tables set up all ready for the reception



The flowers all set in vases ready to be taken out to the tables - Megan did a great job making them!

Signs and balloons put out along the roads and also placed along the pathway to the Ceremony Spot and tent
The "Burma Shave" style sign was put out down the road right before the turn to our road...I don't have a picture of that unfortunately

The heart marks the "Happily Ever After Begins Here" sign

The chalkboard bistro sign - see what I used to make it in this post.

Games were set out, the fire pit made ready, and lights strung up to light up the yard.

It all came together with lots of help from friends and family - we couldn't have done it without them.

The ceremony was beautiful and special.

And everyone had a wonderful evening filled with love, laughter, and good food.

Our hearts are full. It was a beautiful day filled with special memories.

Wishing them the best for their "Happily Ever After".

And me? I didn't cry...well, maybe teared up a tiny bit. But I was prepared - thanks to my sister Christine for the beautiful hankie she made me.

PS
Thank you to everyone who shared their pictures. (I chose not to carry around a camera. I wanted to soak in every minute.)

    That cake topper is adorable, too...must be a story behind it, I bet.

  6. Oh Cecilia this is awesome. How beautiful and so unique. This is how wedding should be. I think weddings now a days are so fufu and expensive and this is made from all your hearts and so unique and special. Relaxed and fun for everyone to really remember this special day. Everything looked so beautiful and the weather was so wonderful for her special day too. Wedding are about two lives joining and becoming one and families uniting. With all your friends and family helping put on this beautiful day made this even more special. Love love love this. Congrats. Now let's get you a grandbaby lol!

  9. So beautiful Cecilia ... congratulations to Megan and Dylan ... wishing them many happy years ahead. Megan looks so beautiful ... love her dress and the paper flowers she made. Pretty handsome son-in-law too. Each year when the wild flowers bloom, you will relive this wonderful event. That was a great idea. Hope someone got a picture of you and Megan together. Fantastic wedding and so well planned.
    Hugs,

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…

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…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
