Good morning! Today I want to share with you one of my favorite things to decorate with….wood stumps! These wood stumps of mine are very special. Luke and I had to completely clear our land to be able to move the house onto it. Luke had always wanted to clear his land, since that’s what his granddaddy did. While we were out there cutting trees one day, I decided I wanted some stumps from our land to be in our wedding. And so, like a good fiance, he cut some wood platters for me.
We served an array of doughnuts, doughnut holes, scones and fruit. Simple, pretty, and everyone loved them.
In these next two pictures you can see how we had the platters laid out before we put the food on them. Sadly, no one got good pictures once the food was served.
Our wedding had a very simple country-vintage feel. Lots of ideas from Pinterest and DIY projects. Ha! Maybe I’ll do a post on that soon…. 😉
Once we got back from our honeymoon, I set out to finish decorating the house. I bought an old dresser and had fixed it up before we got married….now I had to decorate it. So I decided to use some of the woodstumps in our decorations. The wood adds such an outdoor-sy feel to the house. And since we both love the outdoors and spend most of our spare time there….it only make sense.
I have never grown Hydrangeas until now. I have always loved them. I had some blue ones in my wedding bouquet. But once we moved our house and I found a plant on clearance at a local nursery, I knew of the perfect place to plant it. And it actually bloomed this year! I was super happy to have fresh hydrangeas outside and inside!
And here’s a whole shot of the dresser….you can kind of see the third stump in the left hand corner. I have a book stacked on top of it, with a picture frame on top of both of them. I’m super into layering like that.
