Job's done...time to vacay!



This week has been CRAZY, as I was the chairperson of the above event. It went smashingly well and now I get to go on vacation as a reward! This is an event our Junior League holds each year as a precursor to our big fundraiser, The Stocked Market, which is a huge shopping bazaar.
As the event coordinator I get to arrange food and drink for 400 people, as well as solicit donations for prize wine bottles that we sell to raise extra money. We sell 100 bottles, so we end up having to solicit about 200 prizes, including those given by our vendors.
I also got to do the flowers, which was super fun. I took the opportunity to do a little arrangement that I've been wanting to do for months now. It's a "gift box" covered in mums and with a rose "bow" on top. I also did some carnation and boxwood topiaries to compliment the colors of our event. These are all extremely inexpensive flowers that last a really long time.







Now that the event is over Dr. Daddy and I are leaving the kids with the in-laws and heading here for some much needed R & R. So, you won't hear from me this week but we'll catch up next Saturday!
