Three more days to organize, shop, wrap, clean, set up, pre-cook, defrost, marinade, decorate, and craft--just three more days and my son will be married to the love of his life, Cami. I'm finishing up the favors and the signage today, as well as buying the last items needed for the reception--steaks, champagne and MORE plates for a couple last-minute additions!
Just a few more handmade items to show you:
The inside is covered as well, and a ribbon is tied around the sides of the box and into a bow.
There were so many pages that I decided to print a small sign that asked guests to use as much as a full page to wish the couple luck, as well as writing their names and addresses.
Each page sports a Palm Tree image.
Another sign will be at the Tiki Bar. It's made to look like a street sign/traveling sign post, with places and arrows pointing the way toward "Aruba", "Cozumel", "Jamaica", etc.
We are supposed to enjoy a cool day around 80 degrees (knock on wood, burn the incense, please God). But guests will be sitting in the middle of the park near the small lake under the sun, so we printed up personalized fans for cooling off the guests.
We have Leis for the guests as they come to the ceremony, with special ones for the bride and groom, their moms, the Justice of the Peace, who happens to be my sister and my son's godmother, and his grandmother and great grandmother.
I have grass skirts galore, plenty of palm trees, a crate of coconuts, and we're swimming in seashells. AND the most important of all, a crew of angels to help out on Friday, as well as that morning with set up, decorating, and packing and unpacking of cars.
So it looks like, even though I am going bald with stress, I am pretty organized, and ready for bear. I am so busy that I haven't even though of the emotional repercussions. it will probably hit me when the cake is being cut by the happy couple and the dancing begins. then I'll be no good for anything, as I will be in happy crying mode all night long.
I am SOOOOO happy!! Can you tell???
