The Wedding Flowers

My hooman sister was in our workshop today along with her aunt Carol and Missy's best friend, Sarah. We were arranging flowers in vases for the centerpieces on the tables that go under the wedding tent on June 9th. Missy's color is a dusty lavender. We're just getting started here. Aunt Carol had it down to a science -start with a sparkling clean vase, put in three roses, one snap dragon and 1 veronica and lots of ivy - then stuff it with Spanish moss!


Dad's workshop was totally clean for Monday's tour of barns but as you can see, us girlz made quite the mess! Wait till dad sees it! shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Hey, Spanish moss is very messy!

Even Mitch was bored by the whole thing! I guess arranging flowers isn't his cup of tea!

We did get bored and decided to play tug and bitey face a few times!

Here's a sneak peak at the bridal bouquet!

I think we girlz plus Mitch did an awesome job on the flowers, don't you?

Till next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie

It's not very boy-like to like flowers, but mum says they're very beautiful. Hmm, maybe Faya would like some from me though?

Hey Maggie! Are you getting married? Or are you the "best dog"?

Don't you think that brothers at that age are a pain? I am so tired nowadays keeping him away from my stuff! Do you have the same problem.

Oops! Maggie. I mean the dog of honour not best dog. He! He! He! Make sure you catch the bouquet if you're not getting married.

Cheers!

Hey Maggie,
The flowers are so pretty. You all did a good job on them. Mama used to make flowers for weddings for family & friends only. She did about 6 weddings & thought it was fun. Be sure to take lots of pictures of the flowers!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi Maggie!

WOW -- you all were very busy yesterday with your Dad away:) The flowers are beautiful, just beautiful! It seems like you were super helpful:) I might have run off with a flower or two which would probably not have been helpful, huh? :)

Awesome job with the flowers! I'm a big fan of the flowers but sometimes I get in trouble because I like to pee on them. Best not to hire me for flower arranging.

Sunshade said...

Awwww.... you must be so excited about Missy's wedding!!!! Congratulations!

Now, your Mitch was soo good. You know, STINKY loves to pick flowers. Yes, you walk him along the street, and all the flowers you see along our route either get half eaten, or pulled out. He holds it until he sees the next flower. It's embarrassing.

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
