Well the blessing is over and it went wonderfully...there were a couple long nights/mornings finishing things up for it, but it's done, over with, and I'm glad...Today we're doing a bit of picking up and a bit of resting. Lovebug had a big day yesterday but she loved it as she's a social little gal! I'll post more on the blessing food and decor (but of course:) on Wednesday or tomorrow, but here's a little sneak peek...
This rainbow of felt I just thought was beautiful - I created lots of felt flowers inspired by the dress Lovebug wore out of it - well, the whole decor theme revolved around her dress and was my source of inspiration!
Here's a shot of my bowl whilst cutting out some of the white flowers...I had LOTS to cut out but was making very slow progress because my babe (have I mentioned she's very mobile and is getting into everything?:), so I traced them out from patterns I made while she was still asleep one morning and then had this bowl with scissors that I would carry around with me and cut here and there whilst watching/helping/playing with/catching Lovebug :). It worked out pretty well. I had wanted them done a couple days prior to finishing them but such is life I guess with an almost 8 month old.
Here is one of the flowers - this one actually became a clip that went on Lovebug's headband...the pink parts ended up looking kind of like fruit loops, but I thought they coordinated perfectly with the dress - you'll see!
Well, Lovebug just woke up, so more to come in my next post...:) Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
