Sunflowers for a Bridal Celebration

It's been pretty quiet here at CLB CeLeBrations, but we've been planning things that are coming up this fall.  This is our first Celebration, and we are so honored to share it with you!  Our dear friend, Maggie is finally getting to plan her wedding day!  God has truly blessed her and has orchestrated the meeting of her soon to be husband.  We were happy to give her this small, quaint Celebration of friends and family with a sunflower theme.  

The theme, other than sunflowers, was taken from the Scripture in Proverbs 12:4 that says, "An excellent wife is the crown of her husband".  We crowned her with words of wisdom for her marriage and then with flowers upon her head.  It was beautiful what young and old shared for her to live by as a wife.  We are blessed to be able to be such a big part of the union of Eric and Maggie!

These amazing invitations came from the talented Lindsey, over at Splash of Silver.  Check out her etsy shop for more great designs.  She designed the invite, and we added the twine bow to add a touch of country to it.

                                       
















 We did this painting ahead of time and left a spot for all of the guests to put their seed finger prints on the painting as they arrived.  After everyone was done, we filled in with black spots for more seeds and filler.  It turned out to be really fun and a cute gift to send home with Maggie.


 Party favors of burlap bags filled with sunflower seeds.

 These flowers were next to Maggie's chair for the ladies to put in her hair.

 Casie did this for wherever we could put it.  It turned out so cute and something they can use with or without the frame for the wedding.



 You will be a beautiful bride!

 Jelly jar glasses with tags for the ladies to write their name, so they could keep track of their glass.

After we ate a light lunch, the women shared with Maggie words that she can use to be that crown to her husband.  What precious advice from both moms and sisters and family!  

 We've never did the flowers in the hair thing.  It was perfect for Maggie though.



 Even her little nieces got in on the crowning.  :)


 Some pampering to the feet for the bride-to-be.

 Some very useful gifts.

 Christi, Maggie, and Casie

Sunflowering Maggie!

It is such a delight to be able to bless sisters in this way.  When the group turns out to be united in thought of the encouragement that the guest of honor needs, it is such a blessing!  Sometimes we really don't know how the CeLeBration will go until it happens.  This was one of those, but was very much lead by the Lord and directed in a way to bless and encourage all. 
 Congratulations Maggie!

Rustic Country Wedding/Dessert Table

Here at CLB CeLeBrations we've been super glad for summer to have arrived!  We haven't had much to post about because we've been enjoying the warm weather and our families.  Finally, we have a party to post about!  Christi was asked to help with the set up of the dessert table.  She didn't make the desserts but displayed them so all of them could be on the table and reached easily by the guests.  What a fun display to do.  The theme of this wedding was a rustic/country theme with touches of wood, crates, lanterns, burlap, and boots.  It turned out to be a perfect blend of rustic and elegance.  Here are a few of the ideas that this bride decided to go with to make the area perfect for her special day.  























 My little family enjoying the fun!  My girls even helped me keep the desserts stocked up on the table.  What good little party planners and helpers I'm getting.

 Let's not forget the dancing.  These pictures showed the lighting and backdrop a little better, but the dancing was so cute.  Christi's dad and her youngest son were out on the floor dancing.
 So cute!
 Then the father of the bride and Christi's son, Benaiah tried their hand at dancing after the dance floor was cleared out.
Beautiful wedding!  Good memories!
