Flower Girl Dress and Coton Colors

The flower girl dresses were a hit and the girls were just simply adorable!  Lots of "ooooos" and "ahhhhhhs" as they walked down the aisle before the beautiful Bride.  The dresses were perfect for Ashleigh's island wedding and she just loved how they turned out. 

Here are some pictures of Lallie and I in our dresses.  We were all barefoot for the ceremony, so Ashleigh gave us all black flip flops with our names embroidered on them for the reception.  Perfect for dancing!

Click on the pictures to see Lallie's dress in full detail.  They are in an embroidered hibiscus print and it's hard to see without looking at them on the big screen.

By the way, I'm going through absolute withdrawal from Ashleigh.  She was texting me Sunday night to which I told her to put down her phone and stop texting, emailing, facebooking etc. etc. and enjoy her honeymoon before she has to get back to the daily grind.  Now I'm in withdrawal from not talking to her in some form every day.  I hope she's having the relaxing time of her life!! 

As an extra little thank you to me for all my Matron of Honor duties, Ashleigh and Matt bought me this adorable cookie jar from Coton Colors!  The happy couple had received one as a wedding gift and I talked to Ashleigh about how much I loved it.  What a unique gift idea!

Once you have the cookie jar (which has a strong patch of Velcro on the front of it), you can get ceramic attachments based on events and holidays throughout the year.  Ashleigh and Matt gave me a Fleur De Lis, which is Louisville's city seal and represents the French aid given to the city during the Revolutionary War (actually, the seal is no longer used, but that's another story).

You can also get ceramic platters, wreaths and pictures frames from
Coton Colors in which the attachments will also work. 

My other favorite attachments, and next on my list to purchase, are the pineapple and the American flag (since Memorial Day and Fourth of July are coming up soon!)

I think they need to make a University of Kentucky attachment and a Kentucky Derby attachment too.

Happy Wednesday Y'all!
