Spring, Bunnies, and Wedding Gowns


Today was to be my first time to post for Susan's Between Naps on the Porch Tablescape Thursday. I had a plan and good intentions but then IT came. I knew it was coming this week. The bridal shop had called and told us to expect it. What I didn't know was how I would feel just looking at even the box that held it. My daughter's wedding dress arrived. Suddenly this was no longer just lists, emails, phone calls, and more lists....this was a wedding, my one and only daughter's wedding. So I know you will forgive me. We did enjoy the tea and that is the first fresh mint from my garden. But somehow the "tablescaping" got moved to the back burner. I can't think of a better picture to remember the day. Bunnies, fresh flowers, fresh mint--all symbols of renewal and hope and fitting for the day! I know you'll enjoy checking out all the posts at Susan's http://www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

  1. Beautiful bunnies! I can feel the mixed emotions you are having but you are not losing a daughter, you are gaining a son...Christine

  2. Nothing like tea for two on a tray with bunnies to keep you company. There are a lot of emotions when you marry off your daughter! Glad you stepped in and got your toes wet on your first TT --

  14. Hello Susan,

    I love the bunnies! I have a few that are very similar, aren't they just the cutest! I can totally relate! My daughter is also going to get married this year and I can only imagine the feeling of actually seeing "The Dress". I am sure it was one of those "reality moments"!

    I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. That all the plans will come off without a hitch and also that "mom" will make it through! :)

  17. I think I have one of those bunnies! Your daughters wedding should take priority. I wish I had a daughter to plan a wedding for. I guess I'll just have to settle for nieces. Now if only they would find someone to marry.

  18. Well this is adorable. I would like to know how to make mint tea! As a matter of fact I would like to relax and try a little sip of that mint tea. I wish I had spent more time sipping something with my daughter instead of worrying about everything else... Really, just enjoy this time with her. ~Athella

  22. These very handy catalogs are filled with various types of dance clothes and the different designs that you can select. You will find in these costume catalogs brief descriptions of the dance outfits and the various accessories that you can use to enhance the look of the dance clothes. In addition to this some dance costume catalogs will also let you see if there are any variations in a particular style or look.wedding gowns
