Oh Husband of Mine!

November 3rd, 2009 @ 12:37 pm by Kristin @ The Treasured Petal

Last month, Joe came to do a job that none of us gals wanted to do. I felt like this was a man’s job, so I called on the best guy I know.

Here he is in action, placing three floating floral rafts in their designated spots.

The shallow end was no biggie…

But the deep end is where it got a little exhausting for him.

He had to dive to the bottom of this ten foot deep pool over and over to set the weights in the perfect place so the rafts wouldn’t budge. A fountain spills into the pool, creating some turbulence which would have otherwise pushed these rafts to the edge of the pool and out of the center of attention. He spent about an hour in there! Thanks for being such a trooper, Joe!

These rafts are tricky to build and tricky to set up, but they are showstoppers! So worth the effort, don’t you think?

*A floral raft how-to is coming!*
