It takes a long time to grow an old friend

one of my friends who i've known since elementary school is tying the knot this weekend. (crystal, i'm stoked for you!) i am so glad she has found the man of her dreams. just like me. i am so happy to share with her in her special day. i'm glad to have a longtime friend like her. i had the opportunity to play hostess for her bridal shower a few weeks ago and we had a ball. she got lots of wonderful gifts for her home. the bridal shower was a peacock much so that a few of the guests thought my house was decorated like that all the time. lol. we used peacock feathers plucked from a friends peacock. i didn't have to pay for a single feather!! lucky! here are a few of the pics. 

the wishing tree. a wish for a happy marriage. a wish full of tips for the new bride. all of the guests wrote a special something for crystal. she read them all aloud. some were funny. some were sweet. and some were sappy. homemade wishing tags added the final touch to the tree. i was very satisfied with them. i had so much fun planning. i love to plan parties. 

beautiful cake the wonderful Tiffany made. vanilla on top and chocolate on the bottom. yummo!

the happy couple.

homemade lamp. made of a wine glass. and a small candle.
