I don't have a lot of time to blog but wanted to get some pictures up before I head off to Florida with some friends for a week. I will add more later but I don't think anybody reads this stuff anyway. I will get back with where the linens are from, etc. Soon. This is at the Indiana Memorial Union with Barry Kuhlman in charge of the coordinating. Flowers by Artful Blooms of Bloomington, IN.
Candy table designed by us but set up by Hannah Trowbridge and the girls from Social Butterfly . They were lifesavers. They set up a ton of stuff. I wouldn't get married without hiring help setting up and tearing down. They even packed all of our glassware into our truck that night and carried Angie & Erik's gifts to the Bridal Suite. They worked hard all day long. There are better pictures on their website.
I didn't get it straight but I think it was something about a Danish tradition that calls for the cutting of the groom's sock. They cut Erik's toes out of his sock.
This is Kate with Erik's aunt & famous author Julia Alvarez. Kate and I both were very exited to meet her. She was as sweet as she could be.
Hi there! My name is Sandy and I live in Indianapolis. Thanks for visiting my little blog. I started this when my oldest daughter (I have two) got engaged because she was planning her wedding and it was driving me crazy that I didn't get to be the one deciding on the decor. At my own wedding 28 years ago I don't remember really caring anything about the decor. My mom planned most of it. Anyway this became an outlet for me and my creative juices. I have decorated a few weddings and 50TH anniversary parties, birthdays (most of which I never even got any copies of the pictures for because I didn't have a camera or a computer or a blog or even know what a blog was for that matter) and I have always decorated for the birthdays of the kids I take care of. I still don't have a working camera so it's been very frustrating having to rely on others to take pictures and actually send them to me. They rarely deliver. I would love to actually get to do a party where the budget was BIG. Seems I am always doing everything for free for friends and family so the party business so far is costing me money. If you'd like to pay someone to do yours, most likely I am available and would love to help. If you are an event designer and need help, look no further. I've collected a lot of vases and decor over time and would be happy to sell or rent any of it. If you see it on my blog and want to use it or need help with your party just leave me a comment and I will be happy to get back with you.

The Gift of Salvation
Ephesians 2:8-9 (New International Version)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.
