celebrate

Our little bean was baptized today.  To get ready for the day, I searched around my house for materials to make a center piece.

Here is what I put together with just paper, ribbon, burlap, twigs, paint, and a vase.








On the table I picked up some hydrangeas from Trader Joe's and I actually used a curtain panel for a center runner.  Hey, you gotta use what you have!






Burlap is a great material because you can pull it apart to add things to it.  I used some of the remaining ribbon I had to string it through the burlap to create some streamers for above the table.




I'm reminded today how sweet life is!

  9. Starting your little beans in the soil of love and laughter is a beautiful thing to do. I used the same soil and now have sturdy plants reaching for the sky.

  12. The twig arrangement is really nice Nicole! A baptism is a joyful family event for sure. I have never said this before, but I love the way you refer to your kids as "little beans".
