Mum-o-rama!

Pomander ball 1Picture this: September, apoplectic 2007; a beautiful hot summer in Philadelphia. Leaves were starting to turn beautiful golden colors but the weather remained around 70’s.

In our little garden, viagra sale tomatoes were still being harvested; the basil was giving up and the eggplants were growing beautifully.

(/of channeling the “oldest” of the Golden girls)

Yes, this took place about a month before our wedding. We were working on a final idea for the centerpiece but then it hit me…what about the church?

While reading Wedding Bee for ideas (a great place if you’re going the DIY way), I found a post that pointed out the Pomander balls made by Mackenzie¬†
for her brother’s wedding. She and her new sister in law not only made the flowers but also glued them to big paper lanterns and used them as center pieces.

I really liked them…but I already had the centerpiece idea…then it hit me…but what about pews?

Obviously the ones Mackenzie made were going to be too large…and it would take a little bit of more effort to make it look the way that I wanted…but hey, that’s for the next post!
