With only a week to plan—eek! only one week?— we met on Monday to discuss all the details. It was a detail throw down complete with our favor Starbucks iced coffees and chai lattes. Ready? Break! She knew she wanted to divide the table into two sides, a ladies side and a gents side, so I drew out a tablescape plan using my three pink glass dessert pedestals, which couldn't have been more perfect and a lovely square platter of Jess's as the focus. Jess collects milk glass and had several sweet little vases for fresh flowers. Her husband even made some delicious vegan cupcakes for their vegan guests! And while I was out shopping, I found some cute little bow barrettes that wound up being the perfect little toppers for the extra cupcakes.
Add in the balloons—over 150 of them!
And one kick-ass collaborative effort!
p.s. I took a ton of Instagram pics too, i love the Earlybird filter!vintage film Photoshop action by Fallout75 that I used on the party pics! Credit where credit is due.
SO! This post has given me MAJOR issues... as this is the second time I am posting it. Somehow half of it up and vanished tonight. Blogger must be having issues. Last week I received a comment from Lulu mentioning that the link I posted to the free vintage photoshop action I used on the photos was incorrect. So, I corrected it and posted a follow up comment to her saying thanks and all... only to find tonight that my blogger dashboard was telling me I still had a comment to moderate. I checked it out and it was her comment. Huh? The scatterbrain that I am thought, "oh! I must have forgotten to save the correction." I'll just redo the correction and repost my follow up comment. Wait. What? Blogger should have posted my comment even if I didn't save my post correction. But it was too late! When I went to check the post half of it was gone!!! WTF.
Thank you Blogger Tips and Tricks for helping me recover the cached version of the post, which I was able to promptly repost. Saving me from having to redo a crap-ton of work.
