Another fantastic wedding took place in New York State, and I was very honored to be a guest to enjoy it with family and friends.
The Wedding Ceremony took place at Holy Cross Ukrainian Catholic Church in Astoria, New York.
The wedding reception took place at a beautiful venue at Stonebridge Country Club in Smithtown, NY.
It is hard to believe that summer is almost over. You would not know that by the still very hot temperatures during the day, but the nights have cooled off quite a bit already.
The calendar may not be ready for the end of summer, but Mother Nature rules, and my garden is surely responding accordingly.
Unfortunately a lot of my vegetables and flowers are done for the season, so today I will share few pictures of the ones still thriving.
I love crafts and appreciate other people’s craft talents.
Recently I was attending a Christening party for a little girl, and just adored all the decorations created by her Mom.
She used flowers from her mother’s garden, mason jars for vases, burlap for table runners and vase decoration.
She purchased crape paper flowers and burlap banners with stamped letters, to add some finishing touches and to pull it all together nicely.
Once again I was honored to attend a Bridal Shower which was very elegant and fun, hosted by the Mother of the Bride.
It took place at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey. The venue and the view was beautiful.
The Bride To Be loves flowers used in Ukrainian wreath arrangements, such as Poppies, Sunflowers, Daisies and Cornflowers, hence these were utilized in the decor for her Bridal Shower.
