A Happily Ever After Freebie

My little sister is married!  Or, to quote the Justice of the Peace, "Mawwied." (She had the JOP start the ceremony with the famous "Mawwiage" quote from The Princess Bride, one of her favorite movies.) It was a picnic in the park wedding and it was just perfect!  My Dad was feeling great and was able to walk Deb (aka Squeebie) down the aisle, which is something we were worried about.  I hope you'll indulge me and take a peek at some pics of the day. If you make it to the end of the wedding gush, there's a freebie for you... 

We got to the park early to set up the red gingham extravaganza. Squeebie went a little crazy with the details (a girl after my own heart). Even the cheeses on the cheese and cracker plates were labeled with little gingham signs. It really set a very classy yet casual tone.
So pretty!

Then, off to the hotel to help Squeebie get ready. The attire was super casual - jeans required.  (I think this broke my Mom's shopaholic heart just a little bit.) Once again, Squeebie went a little psycho and individually glued over 800 crystals onto her blinged out Chucks, but how cool are they?

That's some serious bling!

Squeeb and Mom ready to leave for the park.

Everyone was ready when we arrived and Dad walked her down the aisle. With everything we've been going through with Dad's health battle, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
Dad rockin' the tuxedo tee!

It was such a great day and I think everyone had a great time.  It might have something to do with the 266 jello shots Squeebie made. Yes, 266!  

Deb and Tom are off to Ireland for a 10 day honeymoon. (I'm soooo jealous Squeebie, if you're reading this, feel free to bring me back anything silver and Celtic.)  As a wedding gift, I put together a little "Now & Later" bouquet with a little something for the honeymoon (now) and a little something for a weekend getaway on their first anniversary (later). I filled the vase with red Now & Later candies and added some finishing touches. Squeebie's not the only one who can go a little overboard with gingham!

Thanks for reading along.  I'm just so happy for Deb that I wanted to share!  Now, on to a quick little freebie. I'm making my own calendar cards this year because I was really bored with my ancient set.  I'm going to incorporate a pattern each month, starting pretty simple and getting more complex as we go.  This month I went with a simple ABAB pattern with jack-o-lanterns and ghosts.  I'll try to post each month's as I make them, and you can grab them for free!
