Dear Laurie,

Everything you do is so dream like and fragile and beautiful. I wish you could do my wedding. :) I live in India, am getting married in December and am just setting up a blog to put all the beautiful wedding things I see around. Found you via the practical wedding blog on Eileen's post. What a gorgeous flowers tree that was. And Heather completed the magic. :)

I love this!

How long did this garland last for? Did you make it the day before you were needing it?

GalFromAway said...

I have the same question as Delia - how long did the flowers last? How far in advance could someone make this garland?

This is simply beautiful and I'm thinking about making some for the wedding party's table, but would like to be able to plan ahead to make it. :)

Thanks for sharing your creativity. :) I also follow you on IBKC.

Please, please, please repost the link for the bird template! I would love to have this at my BFFs baby shower next month! It's gorgeous!

Anne said...

This is so perfect. I second what TH Upstream asked: is there any way you could repost the template? I'd love to do that for my wedding!
