DIY barnwood welcome sign

This is a super easy project! I know, I know - I say that all the time. But for real! All you need is a piece of old barn wood, letters, and nails. We've been tearing down a shed and are using the barn wood for the ceiling of our basement bar. We made some great progress last night. I can't wait to create a post on it! Anyways, I stole a piece of barn wood for this project. There are ways to distress new wood if you can't find an old piece (click here, here, and here).

Arranging fresh flowers from Hy-Vee

If you follow my blog regularly, you know that I love fresh flowers and recommend saving money by ordering them in bulk and arranging them yourself for events (see here, here, and here). 

My cousin Becca got married last Saturday and I had the pleasure of arranging the fresh flowers. Becca is an awesomely chill, laid back gal who wanted a more casual/somewhat wildflower look. Becca and her mom ordered all the flowers from Hy-Vee and picked them up Friday morning. I arranged them Friday afternoon. I mostly worked on the bridal party bouquets and bigger arrangements while her friends helped with the smaller arrangements for the reception tables.

We did use silk flowers from Hobby Lobby for the boutonnieres and made those a couple weeks in advance. See that post by clicking here.

Here are some pics:
