This is where people gathered as they arrived to hear some Texas Swing music from a rockin’ Texas band. I love a fiddle, and I loved their music, great job guys.
Mr. CH roped off an area off of our driveway for guests to park their cars. He mowed this area as well as our driveway. Yes, you heard correctly, he mowed the driveway. What can I say, only in the country!
My daughter and I cut lots of Bluebonnets for this party. I offered for guests to take the cut Bluebonnets home with them, but I didn’t have any takers. They mumbled something about cutting bluebonnets being illegal, and not wanted to get caught with them in the car. You would think I was trying to hand out illegal drugs. I did do some research since I had heard something like that before. I found that picking Bluebonnets is not illegal, but the things people do to get to the flowers is often illegal, like trespassing on private property.
I didn’t just fill up these Tony Lama’s with water. I put a glass jar in the boot and filled it with water, then added flowers to the jar. That worked quite well. Can you see the field of blue in the distance?
I also filled these Ikea vases with Bluebonnets.
I just love Bluebonnets.
In this photo below, you can see the pendants I made in a previous post.
I used my coke crate to display more Bluebonnets. I used empty small supplement bottles in each cubbie to hold water and flowers.
The table is covered with a drop cloth.
I wanted flowers in every corner.
