Only 115 chair sashes and napkins to iron.
Listening to Peter Ostroushko’s original score, “Minnesota, A history of the land,” and a Josh Groban CD while ironing. Little did I know when I chose the Groban music that “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” would be among the selections. Also listening to Christian radio station KTIS to de-stress and focus.
Vintage blue canning jars rented and readied for bridal party and table bouquets.
The son’s (usher’s) shoes are shined, awaiting his arrival home from Boston.
*Hydrangea have been picked and are drying in the garage, awaiting placement in urns outside the reception venue.
The father-of-the-bride has purchased his suit and his speech is written. (He is anxious to get the hydrangea out of the garage.)
Wedding programs are printed.
And the engaged couple is scouting out wedding photo locations.
* NOTE: Remember the story of the hydrangea thief? I awoke one July morning to find about a dozen hydrangea plucked from the bushes in front of my home and strewn across the lawn and street. Click here to read that vandalism post. Not knowing whether the flower thief would return, my floral designer sister decided to supply the hydrangea for the wedding party and table bouquets and pew decorations. That way I would not need to worry about the hydrangea. Thank you, Lanae. The thief never returned. Two weeks ago I discovered that flowers in the beautiful urns outside the reception venue were dead. So I harvested nearly 40 hydrangea to fill those pots.
