Luau Banner

For some reason the photos I took at the shower turned out blurry but I got some good ones of the banner.

Tuesday Evening

So, the day is cooling off and I am enjoying the evening on the back porch.  The boys are inside listening to the football news.  I'm reading my fourth book for Summer Reading Marathon.  Carly and I have been competing with Summer Reading Marathon for 12 years now.  One year we both read 21 books.  This year, it's a lot slower.
No photos this time, but I do need to download the photos of the banner for the Bridal Luau and some of the decorations - turned out awesome and the shower was a lot of fun!  The Bride-to-be was all smiles!
Now we're planning an 80's themed birthday party for next month.  I told C that we're not going all out but I always seem to get caught up in the excitement!  I pulled out the old cassettes and most of them still work!  Good Times!

Bridal Shower Luau

I'm helping a friend with her daughter's bridal shower.  Those chose to go with a Luau theme since she's going to Maui for their honeymoon.  That Life's A Beach Cricut cartridge sure is coming in handy!  We decided to go with a Bridal Bar with signature drinks, Blushing Bride Daquiries, Maui Island Ice Tea, Honeymoon Sunrise, and a special named martini after the Groom's last name.  These drinks will be non-alcoholic except a little champagne punch.  Haven't come up with a good name for that one yet.

I've been busy making a banner, tissue pom poms, drink tags, and cut outs for the centerpieces.  I'm having a blast!  I love this kind of stuff and the Luau theme is so much fun to work with.

I'll post photos later.
