Tying Up Loose Ends

Bridesmaids' gifts all wrapped up...

The necklaces came from Forever 21.com. We did end up changing out black ribbon for cream. These were ordered almost the minute Sara got engaged...so glad we did because they are no longer there.
Here's what we came up with for the Groom's boutonniere to match Sara's very unusual bridal bouquet. This too, was originally a vintage pin from the antique store.
We got the "stems" attached, finally.

These petticoats for the Bridesmaids were the ALL-TIME goofiest idea I've ever had. Turning them into knee length (from ankle length) was a nightmare. Thanks for all your help, Margie...you're an angel!!!

And, since the little Mister will be here from London, I made him a polka-dot bow tie to match his cousins' polka-dot dresses.

Thank you for continuing to visit even though I've been on hiatus.
One day soon... : )

Oh my gosh ML-everything is looking more beautiful by the week! Tell me that you didn't make the bridesmaid's neck-pieces. They are incredible! And the bowtie for your grandson...too cute!
Now...will you be going to a deserted island to curl up and sleep for a month when this is all over? (Are you sure you're not breaking into that chocolate for the sugar high? LOL)
