Or you could try this stuff, it is lots of different colors and has a more crystalized look, but I think it's kinds neat

I'm sorry that you're having shoe drama! That really stinks! I have to admit that the pink shoes were my fave! I can't believe that the e-Bay seller wouldn't do more to rectify the situation! And for them to want you to pay to ship them back...some people! I don't blame you on the negative feedback! That's something that other buyers need to be aware of!!
I hope your SIL comes through on the SATC shoes. I've never been a big shoe girl-just give me a pair of Justin boots or flip flops, and I'm happy-but those really are gorgeous!

I am so hoping that I get them and nothing goes wrong!!! I don't usually like fancy shoes either. 99% of the time I am in flip flops or Crocs. But once in a while, that beauty queen comes out in me

I love qvc! Thanks for the link. My DH told me that it is just floral gel, and his mom used to use it all the time. It is pretty inexpensive. You can buy it in clear and add food coloring to the water to color the gel.

Thanks! I love being at the beach. Water and sand are so relaxing to me.
I am totally rooting for the blue shoes now. I need some pixie dust to help my SIL come through!

Ok - so my at home anniversary party/reception - whatever I should call it - is going to be a year away. But that doesn't mean I am not totally obsessing about it!

So I really want to get some planning done, so I have a clue as to what is going on. I like to be overprepared way in advance. I am a bit obsessive when it comes to this stuff.

I think that I am going to decorate the handrails of the gazebo. We have chains of silk roses in the studio in pink and yellow, allong with tulle in every color imaginable. So I thought that I could use those to wrap around it. I also have blue pew bows with Cindy's carriage sewn into the middle of them. I don't think I have posted a pic yet. But I have 12 of them from when I thought we were doing this at the Swan & Dolphin. I figure that it's kind of dumb to use them on the cruise ship since the idea of a horse and buggy on a cruise ship is ridiculous! Anyway, I will tie the chains of flowers onto the rails with these.

I also have been working on some topiaries. The tops are going to be just like a Mickey Pomander (kissing ball). They have pink hydrangeas on them. I have 1 done. (Post pic soon) Then I am going to wrap a wooden dowel in ribbon and put it into the bottom of the Mickey head, and into some floral foam in a little flower pot. I also have these silver and white glittered tree branch things - I have no idea how else to describe them - that I am going to stick into the flower pot around the base. On top of that, I have blue and white glittery birds and butterflies to stick in there as well. (These reminded me of all the princesses singing to the animals, and well I want to be a princess too!) I want to put these on either side of the gazebo. I also have some sick and twisted vision of dragging these onto the cruise ship for our VR. I just haven't figured out how to orchestrate that yet.

Then for the tables, (they are picnic tables under a gazebo type pavillion) I want to use white table cloths, since I already have several (free), and I am able to get more for pretty cheap. Then here is where I am stuck in my vision.

I want to make table runners of some sort that are Disney themed. I'm thinking like pink satin or blue satin, and then stamping mickey heads on them. Or using a gingham mickey material - like the one on the shirts I made - look into my signature. Or there is a pink Mickey and Minnie material that has them kissing. Very cute, but hard to find.

The problem is that I need it to all kind of color coordinate. The gingham is cute - definitely match my picnic them (plus I already have it), but it is primary colors, red, blue, and yellow. Pink flowers won't match. DH thinks that pink table runners will be pink overkill. What to do?

Also (this is a very lengthy post, but my brain is on decorator mode), we want to make the gel cylindars that Disney uses at the dessert parties. We finally watched the WeTv Disney wedding show, and loved Courtney's dessert party centerpieces with the gel and roses. This is what we want to do. We also love her colors - the bright orange, pink, and yellow. This is perfect for the whole outdoors, family, beach, theme, but I need it to all coordinate with what we have. Suggestions? Anyone have inspirational pics?

Also, I think that we are going to get a silly Cinderella and Prince Charming cake made. It's like something a 6 yr old would have for a b-day party, but I got to get my princess in somewhere! Plus it is really cute!

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the SATC shoes. I need those shoes! That is something to be added to the list!

I love all of your plans for your at home reception and it's better to plan early because then you have so much more time to make sure things work out.

I love all of your ideas. Although I do think that pink is amazing I think that your DH maybe right. I know that my DF was freaking out when I started mentioning pink but as long as its not overkill I don't think he will even notice.

I love all of the Disney ideas and I know everything will look great. I don't know if I mentioned this before but that site is beautiful and I think that you have such a beautiful family as well.

More Ideas

Pink runners probably are pink overkill. If I had my way though, the whole world would be pink and blue! LOL. I don't want it to look like a baby shower.

I think maybe no table runners and just confetti around the vases. I just need to have the confetti made out of something heavy enough to not blow away. I have a ton of silk rose petals in the studio. Literally about 2000, but I know that they will get blown all over the place out there.

I think that I am going to make more hidden mickeys like for my bouquet, but I am going to put them in the centerpieces for the reception. I also found (on ebay of course) where I can get the mickey shaped balloons in different colors. These are the celebrating balloons that they have in all the ads. I think that I am going to get some of these and make balloon bouquets to cover an ugly storage door in the pavillion. Then the kids can all run around with them later.

My DH is even excited enough about this project that he went out and bought the flower gel stuff. He bought a lot of it for about $12.00. It should be about double the amount that we need. He wants to be able to play with it and try it out now. He has also found someplace where we can order the light up cubes for about $1 a piece. So I think that he's going to get a few and try them out.

Here are some pics from Courtney's pj. These are my inspiration:

Dan's tux is here!!!!!!

My hubby's tux came!!!!!!!
I'm so excited b/c it has been 9 years since I have seen my DH in a tux! I think that he looks fabulous.

The pants still need to be hemmed, but everything else fit really well - except for the shirt. I ordered the wrong length on the sleeves. It's only off by a couple of inches, so it isn't noticeable when the jacket is on, but I'll have to get him another shirt. And of course, the shirt is the only part we can't exchange. Go figure!
We got both the mickey bow ties - which I didn't think that we were going to get - and black bow ties. I definitely like the black better. Dan said he feels like a dalmation with the mickey one on!

Here are his pics:



And the dalmation effect:


I am so excited!
