It was last May that my son and his new bride celebrated their wedding day amidst an outdoor room full of guests….family & friends celebrating together a union in the eyes of God and before man. As I am now in my third week of celebrating the opening of Burlap & Lace, I have had the privilege of meeting a few brides-to-be who are excitedly planning their own celebrations coming up in May or June. As I remember fondly the fun that I had in planning a rehearsal dinner for my son and his new bride and in sharing the joy of these new friends I’ve met at Burlap & Lace, I have decided to bring a couple celebration events into the style of Burlap & Lace for the next few weeks…
- Weddings – You will find things to make your special day a true celebration, be it items to use on the celebration day or items to gift a new bride and groom. And if you need ideas, ask me for suggestions! I would love to help the new couple fix up their first home! At Burlap & Lace you will everything from dishes to pillows to furniture….and all the trimmings in between!
2. Garden parties – Who doesn’t love a reason for a party?! I love thinking outside the box and coming up with different ideas to make your party a success. Be it a backyard barbecue, an informal gathering of neighbors or kids coming home for Easter, there is always, always a reason to celebrate! Even just celebrating Spring and the birds’ songs lifts my heart! Come see what things are here to help you celebrate your upcoming occasions….
3. Coming up in May is Mother’s Day….I don’t know about you, but I see reflections of my mom and my grandmother in my every day living….women who have taught me much about giving of myself and stretching my self-imposed limits in ways I didn’t think possible. And Mom- whoever she is to you- is worth celebrating! I have everything here to help you do just that…from already made planters for the garden or porch to lovely tableware to help her brighten up her own table to pillows for her bed when she snuggles down for a nap after a long day. For the mom you just don’t have a clue what to get….try some sachets for her dresser drawers or to slip beneath the seat of her car. Or maybe a nice basket for her to put her cosmetics in on her counter. Soaps are always a win and I have some wonderful fragrances to select from. I have scarves that are bright displays of beauty for the neck or for the table! Or perhaps your mom still loves to send handwritten cards…I have some special ones for you to choose from. Come check it out…
Whatever you find to celebrate, I’d love to share that special occasion with you. Until we meet….
