Update on baby shower progress..

On Saturday we went down to dd and my job was to label the invitations.  Let's just say I didn't do the first one right..........well not to dd precise instructions!!!!  I swear one of these days my eyes are going to be stuck in the back of my head, the amount of times I roll my eyes at her.  I thought it was children/teens who did it to their parents not the other way around...LOL

Anyhow, here is a peek at the front of the invitation; can't show you the rest as there is too much information on it, that we don't need the Internet trolls to see!!!  Got the invitations from here.

Here is the back of it:

Had to buy cupcake liners as I am making 6 dozen cupcakes, three flavours.  So took advantage of a 50% off coupon at Michael's and dragged dh along for the hell of it.  He hates Michael's.  I thought I was safe with brown and cream ones......

I had to cut up these labels for the water bottles.........yes we are having personalized water bottle labels.......it's the little details dd says that matters!! Yes, but guess who has to remove the original labels from the water bottles and glue on these ones?  Yep, that would be me!!!

I picked up some more cups, saucers and tea plates.  I got these two for $1.75 for the pair:

I got this set for $5 and it includes 4 of cups, saucers, tea plates, dinner plates and bowls.

For the floral centre pieces on the tables, I have picked up 32 random glasses that I paid $4 for.  Will put them in threes on the table and pop flowers in each of them.

I'm not sure if I have told you this, but one of dd good friend's is getting married next year and they are having a garden party wedding.  So any china and glassware that is leftover I am giving to her for her wedding reception.  So nothing is going to waste and when she is finished with it, she will donate it back to the charity shop.

I hate to say for all my whining, dd should be a party planner as she thinks of everything, and she is right it's the little details that matter.  Right now dd and her best friend are into making felt flowers to go on the wrapping paper for presents as an extra bit of embelishment.............I know I should have named her Martha!!!!

Just published a couple of book reviews, here.

It just amazing where anyone finds the time to attend to all these details! I seems all like a full time job in itself almost.

It's going to be perfect! Does R know all the details or will they be a surprise?

Glad the Baby Shower plans are coming along. My cousin is having her Baby Shower in October in Mississauga and I'm really looking forward to it! I'm just now waiting for a sale to buy my train ticket!

Maybe Martha could use an extra set of hands...
