Ikea is definately an adventure! I always get overwhelmed after an hour b/c it feels like theres no way out of that store!

Hooray! I heart Ikea! Good buys, the lanterns are tres adorables!

I have to drive for an hour and a half AND take a 90 minute ferry ride to get to the closest store. I still do it several times a year because I’m obsessed with it 🙂

Ohhh LOVE Ikea. I can walk around for ever, but oddly enough, I rarely buy anything there!  They have some weird, awesome exotic plants there though.  I once got a pineapple plant from them!  😉  It grew one baby pineapple and then died.  Love your finds!  Neat lanterns

How do you like the lanterns?  I’m thinking about getting them for my wedding as well!

We have the same lanterns as decor in two of our rooms!  I’ll never forget the first time Fiance took me to IKEA.  It was so overwhelming.  We’re about two hours from one here, but we do make it an allday trip sometimes, and it’s a must whenever we’re visiting his parents back in MI.

great finds.  The first time I took Fiance to Ikea he said it was like a furniture theme park.  hahaha  I love going there.  Luckily we have two within a short distance.

Sounds like a great deal to me!  I love those lanterns, so cute.  What are you going to do with them after the wedding?  Give them away to guests?

Hehehe, going to Ikea sure is an adventure. The first time I went to one I felt like I was in an amusement park, lol!

Ikea is awesome!  I’ve been to a few Ikea workshops (they always feed you a delicious dinner from the restaurant, mmmm) and am actually using the tips from the flower arranging seminar for my centrepieces.

I just wish we had one in the Maritimes 🙁  But it’s still a kickass place to shop, for weddings and real life.
