Anywho, we managed to get everything ready. Susan was in NC and wasn't able to come and see so we spoke on the phone. I needed a sign for the front to guide the 20 something women that were coming. The class was at 630 in the evening. 630 in November, dark, dark and more darkness. Alot of the roads around here are old farm roads that have no lights including mine. Rob went out again and bought a lantern to put in the front and light the sign. Then I bought mason jars and put citronella tea lights in them to light the way. Then Rob bought path lights to light the way to the barn. AYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEE! I kept thinking the night before about a freak snow storm or hurricane and having all the ladies swimming in mud. I would just die!
Susan and Carol, Connie and Shannon (my new Blog BFF - sorry Alexie) arrived first. They set up everything in the barn and suddenly the barn was transformed into a flower shop. It was incredible. See for yourself.
|Here is Shannon putting words on the leaves. How cool was that!|
|The name of the class was Fall Flourish. You could pick out a basket and make an arrangement for a centerpiece with lovely flowers, succulents, leaves, gourds, berries. All artificial all magnificent.|
|These ladies couldn't have been more lovely and gracious. All thanking me for hosting the event and hugging me when they left. It was a joy to meet all of them. Even my neighbor Tina came to see all the beautiful things.|
|Poor Connie, she had alot to tally up.|
