This weekend I painted bedsheets, hunted giraffes all over town and ironed paper tablecloths just to see what would happen.
Anything in the name of a good party, right?
I'm feelin' good about my bestie's baby shower. I'm the type who stresses at the beginning of planning a party, but that's due to that whole "blank page" fear. Once there's an inspiration board, I'm mostly chill. (Is that still a thing? Can I say ' chill'? Meh.)
Now that we're under the two week mark, it's crunch time since everything has to be mailed out to California. So, I hit it hard this weekend. She's always loved giraffes, and we wanted to incorporate them in a more classy, sophisticated way than usual. While I was slathering these dudes in paint, I wasn't totally sure of my decision. But, once the first guy was dry and had donned a mini-bowtie...I was in love.
They'll be sitting on the guest tables (here's a little mock up I made) next to arrangements of dusty green succulents and blooms in shades yellow and white. I have no clue what my seasonal + affortable floral options will be when I get to CA, so that will be a fun surprise. :)
Are you a calm, collected party planner? Or do you run around like a crazed woman until the last second?
