As a recent mother-of-the-bride that I am, I reflect on the joy it was to help plan and decorate a party for my oldest daughter. It was not of the usual autumn theme that surrounds this type of year. It was actually like a transition from the movie, “A Nightmare Before Christmas” meets spring. After all, her wedding was on Halloween. I aimed to keep it in line with her costumed wedding theme of fairies, vampires and mythical creatures.
Decor of black, white, slate gray, mint green and pink accented the atmosphere of her bridal shower. I spray painted pumpkins pink, gray, and silver. I dappled them with bling, and used my new handy glue gun to set ribbons and bows in place. I was lucky to find some black and white striped, and black-glittered pumpkins at local thrift stores too. The hunt was fun. I was driven to tap into the heights of my creativity. Putting it all together was blissful and rewarding. My daughter loved it, and everyone else did too.
Now that it is all over I need to find my glue gun and my paint brush and get busy with something else.
