The shower is just 3 days away! I'm more nervous than excited, this being my first shower plus I'm hosting it (my first time to host anything). I'm just glad that this is a small group of around 20 ladies. I wish I was buddies with David Tutera- I really can use his service
s right now!
Since the last post, I've been busy with more cutting, printing and gluing. What I want to show off right now are the cupcake wrappers I made:
I printed the wrapper on regular long-sized bondpapers and used an Xacto knife to cut them up. I used Janet P's cupcake wrapper templates that I posted here on my blog not too long ago (Thank you Jan!). Then I trimmed the top using scalloped scissors.
The design is consistent with the patterns I used for the shower invites. I also made tiny flaglets which I will adhere to toothpicks and pierce them on top of the cupcakes. I'll post them here when I'm done making them.
I also made banners that I will clip on to a twine and hang them across the room. I'm holding the shower at a bar in a hotel in the city. Well it used to be a bar but it's now being used for small, private functions. Good thing I know the manager and I was able to get a discount for the rent and corkage fees.
Also, thank you to Christina, Cherbear and Lainey for suggesting names for the cute office cat I talked about in this post. I like Butterscotch too but since I find it too long, I'll go for Butter.
Butter is right now cleaning herself outside the office door, satiated from a hefty lunch of fish and rice I just fed her.
And oh by the way, I'm opening the lines now for my Christmas kit RAK. It's still not done yet, about 80% finished. Here's the initial preview:
I don't know yet how many people I'd like to RAK it to. But if anyone wants to play with it for free (it's S4H-S4O friendly), then sign up via Mister Linky below. (Note: Those who don't have blogs, please leave a comment in this post if you'd like to be included in the giveaway).
