Fourth of July decorations.
I'm using all of the same old stuff, but trying to display it a bit differently.
In case you don't remember my
patriotic projects from last year,
here's a little reminder.

Our wonderful friends planned a garden reception for their newly married son and daughter-in-law. Several weeks before, they asked if I would be the "back-up plan" in case of inclement weather. I happily agreed. Unfortunately we have been experiencing unseasonably rainy weather and Saturday was no exception. At noon I was called when it was decided that the reception would be moved inside to a nearby church. The bride's parents had plenty of little lights, oodles of beautiful flower pots, and lengths of picket fencing to give a garden ambiance, but I wanted to add just a bit more. So with the wheels in my head spinning and my hubby as my creative accomplice, we went to work on Plan B.
We used four old and weathered porch columns given to us by our good neighbors. We added a top to attach them together. The columns stood firm and became a pergola over the wedding cake.Then we pulled out two french doors (Yes, we really do have these things on hand---stored in our garage, where most people park their cars). We cut and painted a few pieces of wood to slip on top of the doors. This tied them together so they'd stand on their own to form a unique and pretty garden trellis; a perfect spot for the bride and groom to greet their guests.It was a whirlwind of a day, but I think the bride and groom were pretty pleased with the back-up plan.
