    Hey there, sounds like you got a pretty good deal! how big are the starfish at Michaels?

     

    Ladies - want your opinion on this hairpiece, It's a first try, wanted to see if I could do it myself so this is not the one I would actually use but something similar. Let me know your thoughts!!

     



    So I am in Calgary today and plan on hitting the Pashmina shop, The Christmas store...I think someone said they had starfish there...I got two bags of Sugar starfish garland at Michael's yesterday and the girl have me the 40% off both bags as the coupon on the website was no longer there...the new flyer had been uploaded. Great deal! Paid 20$ for 18 starfish instead of 50$!

     

    I found a great find yesterday at a Great Canadian Dollar store in St.Albert, just outside Edmonton. They have small red and blue starfish...look like gems or confetti...more for gluing on things. But I bought all the red ones and I will use them in my table centerpieces with my shells and sand. But I also plan on using them as decorative confetti on our dinner table for the reception! I think the name of the company that makes them is Twisted 4 crafts, don't have them on me but I will post a photo tomorrow so you can maybe try and find them in a store near you.

     

    The cool thing is the woman at the store told me that I could call the owner of the store and try to order more in! I asked if they had more colors available but she didn't know. But they had red and light blue ones.  Great option instead of ordering real mini colored starfish!

      Finished the FI's TTD outfit today with the purchase of a Tommy Bahama shirt from the Bay (on clearance for $40)...shown here with the linen pants from Old Navy (which were around $12 after discounts).

              These flower girl baskets may get axed in favour of these sinamay baskets, if I can get them large enough to hold their rose petals:

              Our programs and sandlewood fans are going on each seat for the ceremony in a sinamay envelope like this:

              My bouquet handle will be wrapped in ribbon first, then a sinamay overlay, with this charm from Etsy seller palomasnest (I am CRAZY about their stuff!):

                No, sorry...it was in the spring of this year that I found them.  But what size do you need?  I have a girls 14 that I'm about to return...I bought a 14 and a 16 for my niece from Manitoba and she ended up needing the 16.  It probably wouldn't hurt to look at the Bay...sometimes things can hang around there for a long time...and if you found them at this point, they should be super cheap.  The brand name is penelope mack.

                IMG_0001.jpg

                So here's my dilemma with this flower girl dress...you've seen the floral pattern, and you've seen what my FI's daughter is wearing...I'm having trouble deciding on a bouquet.  I would love something really bright, but I pretty much have to stick to greens and pinks at this point.  I guess I'm feeling kinda stuck trying to be complimentary to the pattern in the flower girl dress.  Thoughts on these?

                Here is my dress...and you've seen the bouquet handle wrap...my biggest question is, ONLY pink flowers, or should I ask for some white flowers in the bouquet as well?

                    I think it looks great! I would add another feather to the bottom were it seems a bit open. Great job I can't wait to see the final one!
