Soooo….my little sister Joanna got engaged this past weekend! (ok, she’s not that little anymore, but still…) I am soo excited and happy for her and her fiance, Cody. (fiance…weird!) We’ve always looked forward to planning her wedding, so now it’s crunch time! They’re getting married in the middle of August…less than three months away. (also, on Sadie’s birthday, by the way) So we’ve been in a planning frenzy for the wedding/reception.
Also…a bridal shower needs to be planned and thrown, by me, maid of honor extraordinaire. (NOT matron, if you call me that I may sock you)
and…Sadie’s second birthday party.
AND….all of these will be going on within a week of each other. Yup, one week. No joke. The perfect storm of parties.
Oh, and did I mention I’ll have a month old baby? not to mention the Sadester…
YIKES. Wish me luck, please, and uber party planning skillz and organization! I think I can, I think I can…
Here are some of my ideas for my sister’s bridal shower…she’s not really girly-girly, and loves her a backyard BBQ/picnic, so I went with that theme…plus, it seems like it would be pretty low key and simple to pull off. I HOPE.
Lemonade, cupcakes, colorful straws, watermelon, gingham, pinwheels…all scream picnic and summer to me. Now, to plan, order, and make an excel spreadsheet with checklists. (yes, I really do that for parties, it’s the only way to go)
