Last Friday we went to the reception site and tackled the flower arrangements. Chelsea and I had absolutely no guidance about how to make a flower arrangement, so it was a little scary. We had ordered flowers in bulk from Sam's and HEB. A few months ago when Hobby Lobby had a 50% off sale on vases we went and bought tons of glass vases in all different sizes.
We cut off the stems and leaves, filled the vases with water, and voilà.
