Flowers and BBQ

While out in Columbia, we have been doing some planning from a distance trying to coordinate times to meet with a florist, caterer, decide on centerpieces and get dresses and vests made for the wedding party. So when I'm in Hillsboro for the weekend, I take full advantage of wedding planning time with my mom.

During my birthday weekend we went to Drummond Florist in Desoto, and picked out the bridesmaid bouquets and some flowers for the centerpieces. Here is the inspiration

My bouquet is going to be a brooch bouquet like Miranda Lambert's bouquet, my mom and her friend Holly are making it for me.

The boutonniere's will be made of cotton bolls, wheat and jute. I am making them myself :)
Here is the cotton boll

While we were at the florist, our caterer dropped off the bbq to sample. We will be having Pulled Pork from King Daddy's Catering. It is the best pulled pork I have ever had.

We then hit up hobby lobby to look for unique centerpiece ideas, to give the reception a very vintage/country feel.

I can't wait to see everything come together!

Birthday Girl

Birthdays are always my favorite! I love planning parties and being able to see all of my friends. This year we had dinner in Festus at Tanglefoot and had quite the crowd. My favorite part of my birthday is getting my Barbie Birthday Cake, which my parents get me every year. You can laugh, but I love getting one every year. This year she was Bridal Barbie in honor of my engagement and they iced her in ivory, pink and brown which are my wedding colors. She was very beautiful.
Grandma also had Barbie Pink Cupcakes made for me
