Outdoor Wednesday: Home Sweet Home

The wedding on Saturday will be at my mom's. It is on a small, quiet lake point with beautiful waterfront views on two sides of the house. This is the side yard (where the wedding won't be, I'll do the front and other side next).

This was my grandparent's house, they built in the 60's. It was their dream home. All the children, including my mom helped.

In the bed along the house Grandma's Rose of Sharon blooms,

And currently, a newer addition of Bouncing Bet.


This is the lake side of the yard. It is a steep hill with Bird Of Paradise, Four o Clocks, and Passion vine. Some of the uglier plants were moved over here out of the way...

What a view!!! (actually one of many)

At night this is all a bloom with the pink Four o Clocks...
My daughter gave my mom the wagon wheel bench, I'll show you its special spot later...

Inside is all the wedding goodies...Bride-to-be wanted floating candles on the tables, and mom just happened to have SIX crystal bowls.


I told mom I wanted a tiered candy dish on the serving table, and mom pulled this candy dish (in a matching pattern) from the cabinet!
What else does she have stashed in there????
Absolutely perfect....

The dresser is full of plates and serving ware, crochet table cloth, napkins, bubbles, etc...


On the bed is the pile of 'fluff' as we call it. We girls just must have fluff!!! Tulle and Paper Wedding Bells, Flowers, Table Runner, Tea Light Lanterns, Candles, and more...

Signs are made, today I go to mom's for the house cleaning, Thursday is final yard cleaning, Friday pre-decorating, Saturday morning table, chair, and crepe paper set up, Saturday night wedding...

Our couple has their marriage license, their rings, Tuesday night they met with the Bishop to discuss the ceremony, they are VERY ready!!!
(sorry for the fuzzy pic, hubby's camera doesn't do night time photos well, and my camera needs batteries)

Oh how exciting the rush is on. Every thing is just beautiful! I love the crystal. How amazing she had all these pretty s. Who is doing the food. I did the food for Tessa and it was quite the undertaking. This is like a faerie tail wedding. The view is awesome!
Big hug best wishes to all.
