Good morning, sweet friends! Welcome to Sundays Life Among The Blooms! Hope you have your cup of coffee in hand (tea or favorite beverage).
Here on Sundays, I talk about random things going on over at White Lilac Farmhouse and things that stop me in my tracks.
One of the few photos that I took at the wedding on Saturday. I left the camera home. The cell did not come out but only to take a couple family shots. I spent the time dancing with my husband, children, grandchildren, brothers, and father. We laughed and enjoyed a wonderful time at the wedding of my nephew, Brendan Smith and his lovely bride Melissa Holliday. One of the best weddings ever!
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT WHITE LILAC FARMHOUSE
It was a busy week as I got the house ready for a rehearsal dinner. The wedding venue was only a couple miles from our home. I offered up our home to my brother and sister-in-law.
They had the dinner catered. I only had to clean the house and decorate it.
These lovely with mums in white containers are from Lowes. Some burlap gold wired ribbon were perfect around the containers to dress them up. The ribbon was hot glued in a couple of spots. This keep the ribbon from sliding down the container.
Remember these gold tea lights from the shower? I reused them for this table setting. You can learn How To Make Beautiful Gold Leaf Votive Candle Holders. They are beautiful and easy to make for any table setting.
A fall bouquet of fresh flowers with a candle made the island cozy. Especially since the food would be main attraction on the island and would take up most of the island space.
We could not have asked for a better day and evening. It was warm enough for guests to mingle outdoors as well. Again, I kept things simple with citronella candles and fresh bouquet of flowers.

Weekly favorite finds
Here are some of my favorite finds this week.
How cute are these Halloween Pajamas for the whole family? Honestly, I have never had Halloween Pajamas before. I always order Christmas jammies for my kiddos.
I did snag this air flyer for $39.99. It had been on my list to get one. I am excited to get it.
This throw from McGee Co looks so cozy. It is available in several colors. Then I came across both of these wreathes. I could not pass them up. The dried preserved olive wreath can be used all year long. I love Hearth and Hand Christmas wreathes. This one with the pinecones is lovely.
