$8.00 Roses

My sister and I gave our nephew Rodney a wedding party (shower) this afternoon. Amy's wedding colors are orange and white, so I looked for orange flowers yesterday, for a centerpiece. I was pleasantly surprised to find a dozen absolutely beautiful orange roses at Walmart in Benton, for $8.00. I can't stop looking at them, they are just so gorgeous.

The party was a family gathering and we invited extended family to participate. Unfortunately, I suppose they all have plans this time of year, because only one couple that isn't immediate family actually attended. The rest of us were siblings, nieces and nephews, and in-laws. But, we still had a good time, and we had plenty of food to go around.

Here are a few photos....

We may be doing this again in October. We hear Rodney's brother, Rusty is contemplating the same jump into matrimony.
