Fall Wedding Baskets



I jus' had to share with you a few pics of some baskets I made up for an outdoor fall wedding last weekend. The wedding was taking place right about sunset down by the creek - simply beautiful.



The bushel baskets were filled with Purple Baron Millet, vibrant colored mums, ornamental kale in white and cabbage in purple along with a lil' bit of trailing dichondra.



I think I had told you guys before that all mums usually have women's names. Well, these are Yellow Bethany and Red Regina. Have you ever checked to see if you share a name with a chrysanthemum? Might be interesting to find out. I have checked and unfortunately - there is no Cathy. Let me know if you'd like to find out - I'll share with you your special color.

Hope everyone is having a great week. It actually rained here today - what a blessing. It's been nearly two months since we had any rainfall - so it was wonderful to see it fall - hope we get some more tomorrow.

Happy Wednesday to ya!
Cathy Cobblestone

Those arrangements are just beautiful & what a pretty wedding it must have been. I didn't know mums had names.

They are beautiful!!! I didn't know that mums had girl names, I'm sure there are none with my name...I've had that all my life:)

The wedding sounds beautiful and I'm sure their pictures turn out so pretty with the colorful flowers in the background.
