Friday flowers, tropical edition

Hello, my dears! Greetings from Hawaii. I don't even know what to say. Our hotel is fabulous, my muscles are sore from all the swimming I've been doing, and I think they might have to pry me out of here with bodily force when check out time comes around.

I'll give you a better update on Monday, in the meantime....

Friday flowers, tropical edition.

P.S. You're almost out of time to vote for my sister's wedding over at Project Wedding. Go here and cast your vote (I'm the very first entry). I would be most appreciative. You can read all my tips for planning your own wedding on a budget - designing the invitations, baking the cake, assembling a dessert buffet, where to get the best deal on alcohol (you know, the important stuff).

  2. aren't plumeria the best? i convinced myself during my trip to maui that i needed plumeria everything upon my return...it just doesn't have that same feeling once you're back on the mainland.

  10. Oh, Rachel--I just read your project wedding post and I was so inspired by it. As a bride with a "budget" wedding, I'm having a hard time keeping things together. I loved everything about your sister's wedding--congrats for pulling off such an intimate, lovely affair! And I hope you have a perfect time in Hawaii!

  11. Those are stunning! I've been inspired by your Friday Flowers and your statement that you buy yourself flowers every week, and I've decided to do the same (no more complaining to boyfriend that he never buys me flowers :))!!
