I won! I'm a little bit late announcing it - the holidays and some wedding planning have been keeping me extremely busy the past couple of weeks. a big thanks to The Introverted Wife for my new thank you cards!

She wanted to know what you were most thankful for. It's easy to say family, David, a job, etc..... but what makes my life special that I'm thankful for? My students. I have students from Lloyd that think of me as a big sister and call me mom, and I have students at SLS that come to me when they need something. You can read more here.

Centerpiece Inspiration

I have to thank Elegant and Budget Friendly for posting this. I am so in love with this idea, I think it might work.

I'm wondering if we couldn't do it with floating candles or such (I'm really not big on flowers) but love the idea that we could do them with the black background and add red and gold touches to carry our colors throughout. I'm really seeing red floating candles and touches of gold glitter.

These planters would make adorable centerpieces for any music lovers. And wouldn't be too hard to do yourself if you wanted to have the music to your first dance song. Just get the sheet music, adhesive spray it to the planter then cover in acrylic to give a nice sheen.

Not that these are too costly either at just $3.77 a piece. Add some flowers to the real planter and viola a gorgeous centerpiece that is also functional after the wedding.
