This is one of Angie's bridesmaids Amber. She is getting married next week in South Carolina on the beach. Angie is her MOH. Angie threw her a shower a week after her own shower... at my house. She was using the beach theme because of the beach wedding which worked out well since my house is full of shells and such. I still hadn't recovered from Angie's shower yet and neither had my house. We were struggling to get this thing put together. Between Angie's job and my babysitting neither one of us had much time to shop or clean or decorate or make food. Luckily I had stuff on hand from other parties. I wish I had more pictures to share but since I'm not on facebook and don't have a camera right now I don't really have access to the ones I'd like to show you or even know if they are out there. These were taken by Amber's friend Lacey. Angie put together these little sand pails of goldfish crackers for favors. This blue sparkly material from Isabel's birthday sure has come in handy.
Pasta Salad Skewers with real shells for handles.
I've been a little obsessed with skewers lately. There was a dessert table also but for some reason I don't have a picture of it. Drinks on the bar.
It was a really hot day and my glass had shattered out of one of my patio tables a week or so before the shower. That's why there is no umbrella here to shade people. I went out and bought a banquet 60 inch round and set it on top of the frame and threw some tablecloths over it. It was really a good excuse to buy one of these tables because we needed one to figure out how the candy bar was to be set up for Angie's wedding. Anyway, we had to move inside to open presents because of the heat. Here's Amber showing her emergency kit that Ang made for her. Angie is making a bouquet with the bows for the rehearsal night. Pooch wants to help. I wish we could go to the wedding but life gets in the way of fun sometimes. At least we can go to the reception that will be held here later in November. Best wishes to Amber and David!!
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.

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.
