Looks like fall and feels like Texas

 It is 87 degrees today in Coppell, Texas ~ don't you just love fall!
Even though that still is a bit warm, the calendar says October, so let's pull out the pumpkins!

 I found inspiration here... Less than Perfect Life of Bliss - Her Fall Home Tour had the below display.  She also is where I got my inspiration for my Craig's List buffet makeover. Here
Miss Julie is amazing, check her out at ...Life of Bliss. 
Julie used that huge wooden board as a backdrop for her wreath.  I used my huge charcuterie board for the backdrop for my cotton wreath.  

Google eye table runner - Target
Velvet pumpkins - Market Street
Cotton wreath - Hobby Lobby
Charcuterie board - Round Top, TX 

My daughters say less is best, I say in this case, more is much better!  See what I started with below and thought I was done, then I just kept adding more!  Yep, much better!

When your niece gets married ....

You help of course and feel very old, because the baby you bounced on your knee and watched grow is now becoming a married woman!  She and Rhett were married at the White Sparrow Barn in Quinlan, Texas. 
The altar area before and after.  Sydney wanted simple and lots of greenery.  The venue was a gorgeous location and didn't need too much extra "stuff".
 Thank goodness, my baby sister was in from Baton Rouge and could help with flowers.
Mint julep cups were filled with fresh flowers and nestled amongst lanterns upstairs.
 Bridal bouquets included garden roses, ranunculus, crespedia, scabiosa, heather and lots more greenery. 
 See what I mean about a gorgeous venue.

 The Mother of the Bride's best friend hosted a luncheon for the bride and her maids while they were getting ready.

 Very impressive way to find your table for the reception.  Escort cards were clipped with tiny clothespin to this huge framed piece of fake grass. 

More fun pictures to come, when I figure out how to share from the family picture site.

The People that make a party worthwhile!

Did I mention I didn't have to lift a finger for this party.   Our three daughters hosted this party at my sister's home. 

 My SIL Sean still had his moving tables and chairs clothes on, but I think shortly after this picture he was in the pool!  
 Sweet cousins!
 The man of the hour (or 60 years!)

 My little sister with my little twins. 

 Friends, relatives from Texas and Louisiana!

 Now for a sneak peek at the amazing wedding weekend with my sweet niece. I will have the pictures from all that fun weekend ready soon.

21,915 days old

Lynn turned 60!!! Our three daughter's hosted and my sister offered her home for a great PARTY!
 This was the sweetest and I may have cried over a few of them.  Each daughter wrote their 20 favorite things about their Daddy!  
 The food was amazing!

 The decorations were over the top!

 The flamingo got in on the action too.

 It was HOT outside, so the Sangria station was a big hit. 
 I put my camera down before the pizza was delivered.  Great way to fancy up a pizza buffet. 
Next up... the family and friends that joined in the fun!!
