Flower Girl Rope Baskets

This last weekend, my AWESOME sister-in-law to be, Arina volunteered to make the flower girl baskets for the wedding!!!

When I say volunteered...

What I really mean is I tried conning her into making some rope vases...
Which in all honestly are the MOST time consuming, TEDIOUS job in my wedding planning...
And although she graciously, and understandably, declined,
she started right away on the job of flower girl rope baskets!!

Arina, starting a basket
By the time they went home on Sunday, she had one almost finished and enough old ropes loaded in the back of their truck to make the other three and then some!

Such a HUGE help! And they look adorable!
I can't wait for our girls to carry them in the wedding!
(Well, HER girls too! Two of them are Arina's daughters, Ada and Abby!)

While she was there and working on the baskets, it forced me to sit down and finish another rope vase. So... that makes three.
Um... Is it time yet to start panicking that I won't have enough...

I'm going to say no and charge on!!! I work best under pressure anyway! haha!

So what do you think?

Was there anything you felt really pressured to get done during your wedding planning?
Did you make it?
If not how did you deal?

I remember trying to figure out table cloths like 3 days before the wedding. the fabric we got was faux leather and my mom did NOT want to sew them to fit the traditional round tables. so we did the unconventional/make due with what ya got and used long tables no sewing required.

It all works out. somehow. i don't know how but it does. :) and i guess when it comes down to it. it's all just details. the real thing that matters is YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED! :)
