Today we're getting things ready for Mallory's Luau Birthday Party tomorrow. I went to buy some lai's and Earl just so happened to remember that I already had some in the basement. I remembered too, but they weren't the kind I was wanting for this party. So anyway, I ordered some more tropical looking flowers on line and we are using the old lai's, but taking them apart and designing the kind that Mallory and I wanted. It's a little more work, but I am using the ones we already had. Right?!?!?
The old lai's had white flowers and gold thingies on them. We cut the string, took the lai's apart, then cut the gold thingies off the gold beadie things and restrung them with 2 white flowers, a tropical flower and a gold beadie thing. I know my terminology is great, huh?
This is a picture of the original and finished product. I think they are turning out pretty cute!
Now tonight I have to go out and buy some clear party bags because the really cute flamingo party bags I bought from the $Tree all have holes in the side seams. So we're going to line the clear bags with the cute, but cheap flamingo party bags and then refill them all.
Aren't birthday party's fun!
