Renewal Inspirations – One day to go!

The hubby, myself and my parents have been enjoying Zion Canyon this past week in preparation for the Renewal Ceremony tomorrow.  I simply cannot believe it is here.  Seeing our ideas unfold as we created a metaphorical and meaningful ceremony and celebration has been the perfect way to honor our last 10 years together.

Mom and I on an unmarked trail headed towards The Court of the Patriarchs in Zion National Park.

During our stay I have been able to make some time for impromptu stops at local markets to find last minute details to pull my renewal tablescape together.  Rough cut indigenous rock and glass were one find that I am using to create a table runner…this should be interesting!  Next I found these vintage Spanish pottery pieces to hold a bloom or two then placed along the 12 foot dinner table.  I just cannot wait to see how all this comes together.  My last minute tendencies with the table decor were purposeful to hopefully capture the relaxed vibe that is so Zion.

I loved this shot featuring aqua colored glass sold throughout southern Utah.  The crisp blue against the rugged landscape in the background epitomizes the color and textures I am so in love with out here.

Our week has been spent hiking, running last minute errands, chatting with our Utah Photographer and Officiant, preparing gifts and Welcome Bags for our guests and a lot of other stuff (no better way to say it!) as you can imagine.  By the way if you haven’t already, check out the fun DIY post I put together with Anne-Marie from Perfect Bound.  The painted sweater project posted earlier this week is so fun and could make a really personal bridesmaid gift or better yet use the painting technique shared to create your own guest Welcome Bags like mine!

The bags are from Zazzle with a simple painting technique applied.
Majorly custom look for a not so custom price!

So thank you for following along and certainly stay tuned as I share photos and tweet a bit here and there along the way!  Everyone has been so kind over the last few weeks with their words of encouragement and well wishes and I cannot thank you enough!  The renewal planning has been a blast but it means so much to know I may have inspired you along the way!  Happy Friday!
