This is probably the longest post I have ever had. I just found so many things to show y'all! Enjoy!
I received my Victoria magazine for May/June and I fell in love with it immediately! First of all I love blue and white and secondly there were gorgeous pictures of hydrangeas and lilacs in this issue! My daughter, Megan was married 2 yrs. ago April 12th and she used hydrangeas in all her wedding arrangements. I decided to share some of the photos from Victoria and Megan's wedding with you!
Here are all the bouquets from Megan's wedding. The bridesmaids all carried blue hydrangea pomanders and Jenny and Megan carried actual bouquets made with hydrangeas and other flowers.
The photographer took all the pomanders and hung them on hooks in the back of our church. I thought this was a very clever idea!
At the reception Megan had hydrangeas in round fish bowls with curly willow wrapped around the inside of the fish bowl under the water-very pretty!
This is a closeup of one of the bridesmaid's hydrangea pomanders.
Now for this section of this post these pictures are from Victoria magazine:
Even the cover of the magazine was beautiful with all the blue and white!
Hydrangeas are such a beautiful flower. It comes in many colors depending on the soil type, but I am especially in love with blue!
These blue and white tea cups are beautiful! I wouldn't mind having them in my cupboard!
I would also love to have this beautiful blue and white bedroom-absolutely gorgeous!
Wouldn't these multi-colored hydrangeas in the white wicker basket be a perfect Mother's Day or birthday gift!
Here are some wonderful ways to arrange and display hydrangeas:
I love this rocking chair with the hydrangeas-gorgeous!
Victoria magazine also had an article on a lavendar farm. I love the smell of lavendar. It is thought to have calming affects too!
Here are some lavendar cookies and a lavendar cupcake-they look so yummy!
I love this basket with lavendar it in. I can smell it now!
I can't wait until I have some homemade lemonade too! This table setting was just lovely.
I love perfume bottles and soaps. Here are some really beautiful robin egg blue soaps and some really pretty perfume bottles.
These peonies look beautiful in this wicker basket!
Here are some lilacs hanging on a fence on Mackinac Island in Michigan. This is a very beautiful island and there are no cars there. You have to use bikes or horse drawn carriages. Sounds like my kind of place!
I hope y'all enjoyed all these beautiful pictures! Enjoy your day!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
