• {It’s in the Details} Chairware: Dress up your chairs!

    There are so many opportunities to let your wedding style and personality shine through in your wedding decor.  An often forgotten spot – your chairs!  Why not dress them up and make them feel a little fancy for your wedding day by tying ribbons on them, adding a floral garland, or adding a twist to the traditional fabric bow by making it burlap.  You can add chair-ware to your ceremony chairs, or just those at the reception.  Can’t afford to adorn them all?  Just decorate the ones for you and your hubby to make them extra special.  Here are a few of my favorite ways to do chair-ware:

    So, what do you think of the chair-ware idea?  So much better than the old school chair covers, no?!

      I am 100% completely on board for this. We are fortunate enough to have chiavari chairs so we don’t need chair covers, and we’re doing ribbons just like the very first image you posted for the bride and groom chairs! I’m so excited and I love the look so much!!

      I love dressing up chairs! I’ve started making chair caps for chiavari’s in the last year and I love the accents for head tables and bride and groom’s chairs! It adds just a little bit more of the couple’s personalities!

      These ideas are so much better than chair covers! I really love the yarn-wrapped heart – that’s very cute!

      Very cute ideas! I love searching for ways to make chairs more fun. They can be so plain but so easily transformed into something beautiful.

    •  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.

       There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice! Head to my blog to enter (link in profile) and tell your friends  #OLDfavefinds #babywearing #mywildbird #giveaway #fredrickfamfallfun  Never did I ever expect to be so outnumbered by boys. I get asked so often if we're going to have one more baby so I can "try for a girl." It kind of feels like the person asking is insinuating that I'm missing out on something. While I always pictured myself as a mom of girls (or at least one) and had to mourn the idea I had in my mind of braiding hair and getting mother-daughter pedis, prom and wedding dress shopping, and ballet lessons, I've never felt that I'm missing out on anything getting to be the mom of my three sons. When someone says to me "wow, you have your hands full" or "you must be tired" I just smile. Because I am tired. And my hands are full. But so is my heart.  #tiredeyesfullhandscantlose #momofboys #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies #mommacharlieselfies #charlieandquincy And I'm hosting a @mywildbird sling giveaway on my blog tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that!
