Queen for a Night!

Last night my twin daughters hosted a "Pirate Booty Bachlorette Party" for their dear friend. She is getting married on June 20th.
I took on the task of making the Bride to Be Crown for the occasion.
Since it was a "Pirate" theme, the colors were black, red & white.
What do you think?

This is me presenting the bride with her gift. Of course it was in a hat box!
Doesn't she look darling?
Left: My daughter Lauren (bridesmaid)
Center: Bride, Sami
Right: My daughter Shannon (maid of honor)
Beside the fact that we didn't get home unitl 2:30 am... YAWN...we had a wonderful time!


Just a little something from Judy said...

I would not have expected anything less than a beautifully created "bride to be crown". Sounds like you all had a great time. I think it will be a good looking bridal party.

Hi Carrie,
Your daughters look tall (and cute, too).
I thank you for visiting my blog today.
I was so tired and ready for a nap when I got finished. I had lots of replies and only one couldn't get through. Not bad.
Thanks for your support. I appreciate it and you saved me from tossing this laptop out the window, Nooooo........
I have 3 grown daughters, also. Lots of estrogen!

I just happened across your site and very much enjoyed it. I love all your creations. Like you, I enjoy everything about home, family and friends.

That hat was soooo cute! and can you believ it... my daughter called me tonight asking what to get a friend (they have been very close friends since kindergarten) for her bachlorette party this coming weekend. She didn't want to do something as a joke but something more personal yet fun, yet sofisticated. I suggested a basket of things like lotion, sponges, candle, etc. I came up with nothing else. I should have said a crown!!!

Barb said...

Thanks for coming by to see my new blog.
I appreciate your encouragement.

Hi Carrie, what a fun night you all have, wish that I was there too.
I am just back from my major migration of blog platform and new layout. Need to do quite some catch-ups of what I have left behind since 2 weeks ago.
Since I have changed my blogging platform (to Wordpress), my latest post might no be updated in your blogspot dashboard. Please link my blog again manually so that you will know when I updated my blog.
Thank you.
