Lucky in Love Cricut Project

Next month, we're hosting an Engagement Party for my son and his fiancé.  They are getting married in Vegas so we decided to do a Vegas/casino theme for the engagement party.

I posted a photo of the invitations earlier and you can see them here.

I'm entering this on the Decorate to Celebrate challenge site.  Visit their site HERE.

Here's a banner that I made.

I'm going to make one more for the bar area.  I haven't started yet, but I know it's basically going to say BAR BAR BAR.  You know, like they hit the jackpot!  HA HA!  Love it!

I had a great idea for the table centerpieces but I made a sample and hated it.  Good thing I didn't invest $$ in supplies.  I wanted to cover a Styrofoam ball with rolled tissue flowers and then place that on a candlestick, but it was UGLY!!  I even closed one eye, squinted and looked again, but it was still UGLY!  And it wasn't as easy as it looked on Pinterest.  So, I'm back to the drawing board.

I may fall back on my "old reliable" which is decorated stakes and flowers in mason jars.  I'll take a trip to Pinterest and come up with something else.  We still have some large cards left from the invitations...hmmm...stay tuned.
