It's raining as I type this - and I can already tell it's going to be a grey day...............
I have a hair dressers appointment early this morning - and then I have to run around like a crazy lady because lately I seem to have a terrible time in the organizational department...............
And today I'm hosting a Shower for Lindsay.
I've managed to set the buffet table
but I have no idea where I'm going to put the 6 platters that are already prepared in the fridge.............
I decorated the buffet with photos of the Bride to be
and I thought I'd show you a little DIY framed poem I wrote for the dining room many many years ago ( another house another time )
Set your table for kings and queens,
Let good wine and good food abound
For we are surrounded by Royalty
When family and friends sit down........................
I have not decorated anything else yet.
I have not bought the game prizes yet.
I have not finished making the food yet.
I have not finished cleaning the house yet.
I have not bought the wine yet.
There's a chile cooking in the crockpot - because the digital pad on my oven just stopped working -
and there's no time for a repairman to come - everything else will have to be a cold buffet.
It never rains.....................
But it Showers people -
Did I mention I couldn't sleep last night?
KEEP ME AWAY FROM THE WINE THIS AFTERNOON
JUST KEEP ME AWAY FROM THE WINE.
We all know what happens when I over indulge, right? ( here and here )
I asked everyone to bring a gift certificate each - because I plan on making a " gift certificate " tree
I haven't spray painted the branches yet - and it's raining.
I asked everyone to bring a hand written recipe - and I forgot to write one out for myself.
They're to go in here
each section has recipes - a place to write out recipes - and a pocket for recipes from friends
and if I don't seriously get off this chair and move my butt - the only recipe I'll be able to contribute is a recipe for disaster :)
Have a great Saturday!
