Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am the queen of making lists. I make a list for everything what to get at the store, what to take with me on vacation, baby names. So naturally, in the spirit of making lists and trying to stay on top of everything I made a list of what I need for my DIY extravaganza. Here we go...

6 more hurricanes
224 lemons and limes (112 lemons and 112 limes)

Table Runners:
Yellow and white gingham fabric (20 yards of fabric)
White Thread to surge the ends

Place cards:
Limes (depending on head count)
Solid yellow ribbon

Escort cards:
Wooden Frame

Sending off Stuff:
Dow rods (enough for 50 people to have an 8 inch rod)
All different kinds of ribbon, in yellow, green and white.

In room Goodies:
Bath and body works lotion
Boxes for the candy
Bags to put everything in
Folders for teh directions

Recipe Bags:
Brown paper bags (perferably with handles)
White and yellow gingham ribbon
Recipe cards

"This Way" sign:
Sandwich board (either pre-made or wood and hinges)
Brushes, cleaning up stuff etc.

Flower balls:
14 Styrofoam forms
Enough fake daises to cover it
Yellow satin ribbon

All I can hear is the Ka-ching of a cash register when I make this list. I mean i know in the end it will be alot mor ecost effictive than 1. buying it made or 2. paying someone to do it.

I think I may hit it one pay week at time. Next week I think I will do the Flower Ball Project.
