Our Living Room/Dining Room

With Summer coming to an official end I wanted to share our living room and dining room area before Fall begins to make an appearance.  I took these pictures a few weeks ago so naturally some things have changed a little but nothing major.  This is probably my favorite area of our home because of the afternoon sunlight that streams in, the pretty blues in the room and the fact that it's where we gather to celebrate all the holidays.  
Here it is all dressed up for the Summer,













Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Celebrating 10 Years

As said in my previous post, hubby and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary this past Saturday with our close friends and immediate family.  We had such a great time and are so thankful to everyone that came out to help us celebrate! 
I had a friend take pictures for us that night so I wouldn't have to worry about carrying my camera around all evening.  It was much more enjoyable not having to worry about getting the perfect pictures but be warned there are a lot!


(The cupcakes were probably my favorite I've ever made and I will be sharing that recipe soon!)




































Tomorrow will be exactly 10 years of Marriage, we will be spending the evening at home with the girls and look forward to opening a bottle of champagne once the girls are in bed.  Over the weekend we will go out to dinner and then our month long of celebrating will come to an end!

Bloom

Saturday hubby and I had a party with our closest friends and immediate family to celebrate our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary.  I knew from the beginning I wanted the decor to be pretty simple but definitely wanted lots of beautiful flowers.  I had a vision of the colors and what I wanted it to look like just had to hope that Friday morning when I drove out to Costco I would find the right color flowers waiting for me.  Luckily they had many flowers to choose from which did make it hard to choose from but after probably 30 minutes loading and unloading the cart with bunches of flowers I remembered what my vision was and picked out the colors I had wanted from the beginning.


I love the color combination of the light pinks and coral/orange roses and luckily they had other flowers with the exact same color combo.
It was so fun to come home and lay all the flowers out on the counter and put together the bouquets.





The taller bouquets went on the outside tables in the backyard and the smaller rose bouquets went on the cupcake stand.


The sideboard was set up as sort of the dessert section with cupcakes and candles.  I added old wedding photos to a few candles as well as a photo of us with the girls.






 I had to take a picture of my anniversary gift from my husband next to the pretty colors of the flowers.  He completely surprised me last week with an entire new setting on my engagement ring.  I absolutely love it and was shocked that he pulled off that big of a surprise on me!  I'm a very lucky girl.


It was so much fun putting together all of the flowers and decorating everything.  I still have flowers arranged all over the house and will be sad once I have to throw them out.
