Burlap & Lace

I mentioned in my last post that I had been super busy planning and making the decorations for a church event this past weekend. It was for our church's women ministry, Oasis. This was the second time I have exclusively been in charge of decorations for a shindig, the first being my sis-in-laws baby shower last Spring! It's a lot of work, but fun to do! Although, I find that I become a bit anal and a little OCD about everything being just right. Thankfully, I don't have a problem telling my helpers EXACTLY what to do (Ha, sorry mom and Val!), so everything worked out great.

We had the meeting in a beautiful lodge. All the decorations looked so pretty against the natural wood, dim lighting and the fireplace.

I wasn't able to get many decent pictures. The lighting was so dim, and I haven't figured out the best setting for it on my new camera yet. Here are a few to give those of you not there an idea: (Thanks to Val for taking some!)
