a lovely living

Next month my baby brother is getting married and we’ll officially be welcoming another sister into our family. We couldn’t be happier for the two of them and it’s quite a story of God at work bringing these two souls together.

Last weekend we threw a shower for our bride-to-be and it ended up being a beautiful celebration. The brides mother, close friends and my sister and I helped to make some of her visions come to life. We are all wearing lavender for the wedding, so that color theme was carried throughout the shower and was married with a subtle rustic vibe….. rustic romance if you will :) I was tasked with creating a flower bar which would allow all of the guests to create a bouquet to take on their way.

I loved this idea from the start, but as it came to life and we helped everyone put their bouquets together, it ended up being more beautiful than I had imagined. If we’re being honest, it can prove difficult finding a favor that appeals to an array of people, but a personalized bouquet is something that everyone can (and did) appreciate.

I worked with our local Trader Joe’s to arrange an order that was specific to our needs. They were so accommodating (as they always are) and allowed me to pull together exactly what I was looking for. An assortment of bright flowers (predominantly tulips, roses and sunflowers), a few fillers and we were set.

The bride’s mother even went so far as to create these sweet tags to tie onto each bouquet.

These two were the best little helpers! Madelyn has had her turn as flower girl in the past, so this time around Audrey gets to fill those shoes.

The stunning bride and her soon to be nieces.

The brides mother and friends get all the credit pulling together the rest of the shower which honestly felt magazine worthy! Here is a look at some of it…

I made this sign at our local Board & Brush and couldn’t wait to gift it to her.

Each guest was asked to bring a favorite recipe to share. Such a thoughtful idea.

I still remember the day he was born because I was able to be dismissed from school early ;)

The ladies from our side of the family. We’ve already welcomed her with open arms, but we can’t wait to make it offcial!

My sister and her husband stained this pallet board and hung pictures to use as the backdrop for the flower bar. It was the perfect rustic centerpiece which they’ll also be able to use at the wedding.

The most beautiful celebration for the most beautiful bride! Now we look forward to those I DO’s!
