Wedding at the Schoolhouse: Outside Work

Helen's wedding is less than three weeks away! Finally we're at the point of implementing some of the grand plans we've been mulling over for months.

First up--a rebuilt arbor in the front garden! Helen's unstoppable father, our dear friend, pulled out the old, collapsing one, cut new cedar poles, and built this square and sturdy replacement. The wisteria won't have it covered by wedding time, but we'll wrap it in twinkle lights and hang a paper lantern from it for fun. It's just a side attraction, though it is rather front and center.

And Helen's mother potted up all these pansies yesterday, basically in any container that didn't escape her clutches. They'll decorate food tables, cake tables, you name it! We're cutting all the flowers as they open in hopes that they'll be blooming energetically at the right time--although they look so good now I almost think we should buy new and pot them again a few days before the wedding. We'll see.

Next big project: a weekend of pie and artisan bread production.

I'm sure the wedding will be very lovely!

Is the farmers' almanac predicting good weather for the wedding day? :)

Looks like my dream wedding. If only I had a schoolhouse here where I live!

I agree with opportunityknits. And I am certain this will be the most charming wedding EVER! I hope the bride will allow us a few peeks of her special day.
