Tuesday we had an appointment with a florist, and we did order the wedding flowers. With that done we headed to Michael's to pick up some flowers for Ryans mom, who is doing the decorations for the church and reception.
Thursday was my fondant and gum paste class. (after having a staff meeting) This week we made flowers out of gum paste, here are some snapshots.
Leaves, daisies, and a carnation.
The pink flower is a fantasy flower made out of 4 large heart cut outs, and 4 small heart cut out, with the edges thinned.
The white one is a carnation, that is a total of seven ruffled circles put together. The ones I will make for my final project will have some gold and pink dusting powder on them. Not really hard, now that I know what I am doing. And no, I am not making the wedding cake, that is already ordered. I am making the cake for the Bridal shower, and she is choosing the one she wants me to do.
Friday we went back to the florist to order a couple more things, then the bakery to give them the flavors of the cake and the ribbon for the cake. We then went back to Michael's and found some more flowers on sale (then E. returned the more expensive ones). We then picked out the pattern for the flower girls dresses. I'd start them next week but I need to finish some pj's for the grandbabies. So I will start the dresses the following week.
So the saying goes that summer is over? So I hear, but it has been in the high 90's all week. Nice cool mornings, but not days.
Keith is holding the ski flag up in what looks like an "I surrender". He is positioning the ski rope.
We took the boat out for on last go around to day.
Elizabeth singled and knee boarded.
Here she is turning around, she did it about 7 times.
This is Keith, he didn't ski, just knee boarded......completely out of the water.
It was a fun day and it started out with Keith and Dan leaving early for some fishing, or should I say some practice, the fish weren't going for it. Then Elizabeth and I took out lunch and met them.
