Prom Preparations: So Much Left!

I have to admit as a team we haven’t done much the past month to get ready for prom! Yikes! I think the reasoning for not being very productive is all the breaks we had. There was never time to get together. Luckily there wasn’t much that could be done that early!

Just this week we bought flowers and greenery for decorations. Sadly I haven’t had a chance to look at any of it yet! I plan on getting to the basement sometime this week so I can see what we have to work with! My main project right now is deciding exactly what I want the centerpieces to look like. We have plenty of rose bowls, glass rocks, and mirrors to work with. My plan is to put a layer of glass rocks in the rose bowl with a flower placed on top of the rocks. I want to use some greenery or rose petals to lie out on the mirror and surround the bowl. I can’t wait to see the types of flowers I will be working with!

Since we haven’t done much for the decorating part I thought I would let you in on my own preparations! Because I have seen Alex making her own flowers for her wedding, I thought how about we make my corsage and my boyfriend’s boutonniere as well! So this week we made a trip to Hobby Lobby to search for some fabric. Well, let’s just say we wavered from the original plan. We went to the wedding section and found great silver flowers that would make this project even easier to accomplish! We came out of Hobby Lobby with everything we needed for them and now all that’s left to figure out is my hair! Hopefully next time I write a lot more is done! Only 3 weeks until prom!
