      Totally!! Do you use groupon? If you do not I can send you a link (as a referred friend) they’ll send me a $10 once you buy something. (Every time you refer someone they do that)

      They have a $17 for 70 going on now for 14more days. (got my for 7 for referring a friend that purchase something).

       

      They’ll give you a code to apply at time of purchase but you will want to apply the 50% off found http://www.retailmen.../vistaprint.com then apply your groupon.

      20 bags was $159.99

      50% off made it $79.99

      Apply your gruopon $70.00

      Making it $9.99

      $1.34 a bag

      Also that advantage of all the free offers at http://www.retailmen.../vistaprint.com

      It took me many tries to figure it out but it was worth it J PM if anything

        Wrapped the boxes in bubble wrap




        Then wrapped them in brown paper - last minute decided to stamp them with " <3 handle with care <3"  it looked better on the piece of paper I did it on first... the bubble wrap made it challangeing - but I went with it anyways.  I then used packing tape to tape every surface so that the paper wouldn't get torn in shipping.




        Finally, I taped on the address labels : )



        (btw -  the addresses on the labels I made up so I could post a picture on the internet - the info from my TA is correct if anyone has a need for one )



        Amazing job as usual

        These look fabulous!

Which works well for me! lol. We are expecting 30-40 guests.

        Who are you using to book?

          And how many rooms should I request? We are only inviting 22 people and not sure all are coming but I guess we should assume everyone is to make sure we have the rooms held? Only 5 couples and everyone else is single. I wasn't sure if i should request one room per single person or ask my friends if 2 girls and 2 guys want to share a room?

           

          We didn't room block. We informed people that they had two weeks to pay their deposits. It worked out better for us in the end.
