My beautiful daughter-in-law, Mary, and my son, Dave, knew exactly how they wanted their wedding to feel. They were married in a field, by a river, on a lovely flat piece of ground surrounded by horse paddocks. They were blessed with a lovely warm and still autumn day last May.
The path Mary followed from the wedding car to the area where they were married was marked with a series of these very simple floral arrangements made by my daughter, Lauren.
The process was very easy:
- take a garden stake and make a small notch in the back with a saw
- secure a glass jar to the stake using a piece of wire
- decorate the jar with ribbon
- add water and flowers
- hammer the stake into the ground
The effect was stunning….so perfect, yet so easy to accomplish. This idea could easily be duplicated for a garden party, a birthday celebration, or any other time you want to add a touch of whimsy!
