Boy, this week is coming up fast!  This is the final week before the Engagement Party (this Saturday) so I'm just finishing projects for the party.  Mostly cleaning...boring stuff!

Here's a snapshot of my work desk:
I just finished punching pennants for the small banner for the cake.

Here are shots of my room:
Some of these items you've seen before.
This container holds some of the big flowers, rosettes, banners, candy buffet bags, candy dishes, and some smaller fill-in flowers.
This boxtop contains all 10 of the table centerpieces.
More flowers!
And finally the buckets that I decorated.  Ok, really I just designed and printed labels for them. I love these!  We need containers to hold the tortilla chips since there will be chips n' salsa on the tables.  When I saw these plastic buckets, right away I thought of those buckets casinos used to give out to hold your coins when you hit the jackpot...remember those?  Ok, probably showing my age on that one, but anyhow, I about squealed!  So I bought red, black, white and gold ones and adhered these "chips" (get it...double meaning!  LOL) stickers.  LOVE!!

Stuff everywhere!  I can't wait until they are in place and ready for the party.  Don't worry, I'll take tons of photos and definitely do a post on the party!

Join other WOYWW by going to Stamping Ground website.  She's the original host and has come back from medical leave.  Welcome back Julia!  Glad to finally "meet" you.  Check out other work desks/craft rooms from around the world and leave a little love.  Happy HUMP day!
