Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Prom Centerpieces

This was my second year to get to plan the Junior/Senior Prom. It's always a fun challenge to carefully plan every detail while staying within budget. I met with the Junior prom committee and we decided on the theme, "Safari Romance." I like anything animal print, so the color scheme was fun, and the venue is decorated with a rain forest, safari theme already. Our invitations were so cute and the student body seemed especially excited about prom when they saw them.

Thursday evening before Prom, Hannah helped me with the centerpieces. I thought you might like to see what I came up with.

I purchased 12 jars from Dollar Tree..the were a dollar each. And I gathered rocks from my vegetable garden pathways and filled them halfway:


And then we looked at what was suppose to go in the jars and realized, we filled them with rocks too soon.

So, we dumped them back in a bowl and started over. OIY!


I purchased the rain forest like greenery from my favorite place, Hobby Lobby, when it was on sale for 1/2 off.  Yippee!  I found some curly willow branches to add to them too.  We carefully added the greenery and branches to the glass jars, added more pebbles and rocks to keep the jars sturdy and used some left over burlap to tie around the jars:

We added some green rain forest like leaves and bamboo sticks to the larger arrangements that would go on the food tables:

And then I cleaned up my kitchen that was covered with broken pieces of willow branches, pebbles, and dirt from the garden...and then we fell into bed exhausted.
