I also incorporated an atlas I had in most all of the decorations... since... again...moving. This feels like old news to me but here it is: (you'll notice there is not a woman's touch to this party at all;)
The invite I made via photoshop and just emailed to the fam (Bahaha):
The colors were going to be orange, light blue, and yellow (inspired by the candles I bought at Sprinkles)... but thanks to the drinking straws red got thrown in, brown, white, green, pink (thank you strawberry frosting). So there ended up not really being one.
Sigh.... I already miss our family.
Other things to note:
-i'm pretty legit and stuff since I made those photo booth props. ME!
(well i guess i made everything at this party. quintuple legit)
-didja notice my mason jar collection? They come from jam I buy... who can resist those cute handles?
-we didn't mow our lawn or pull our weeds... it added to the shabby effect :p
-paper straws are so hot right now
-that frosting was the shiz... maybe I'll tell you where I found it
-brown paper packages tied up with string. told you I'd do it. And now you have a song stuck in your head. sucker.Here's a clip of the party as it was winding down... just because (when am i NOT posting videos now). For some reason Tony cracks me up in it. I did it mostly to show the awesome piano music we had playing on my record player the whole time. Gah! Can't wait to listen to it again (I'm in D.C.!!) Be back to catch up on everything else...soon (;
