So right after I continued down my mental walk-through of the party and remember the boutonnière for my Dad, my brain screeches abruptly to a halt.
Not only are we doing this big bash for my Dad on Friday night but our wonderful nephew and his beautiful fiance are having a cocktail Engagement party shindig on Saturday night at some fancy schmancy venue. It said very clearly on the beautiful printed invitations "cocktail attire only" (which I think might be addressed to me personally but I refuse to believe they would stoop so low just to be sure I wouldn't show up in my usual flannel shirt/jean winter attire).
But because of this glitch I now remember that the black skirt I got is too long and it needs to go to the dry cleaners so they can hem it for me! So my list grows.
3. Get skirt hemmed
I'm hoping that the shoes I buy to fullfill #1 on my list will work for both things. I don't think my nephew would like my wearing my black paint spattered sandals. Some people are sooooo picky.
And since I'm continuing to think about party attire I need to check on my order for chiffon scarves and cat eye glasses! Because I have ordered a bunch of these for favors on the tables but also so we can all get dolled up in them.
I have hired a girl to come to my home on Friday afternoon to do up-do's and beehive hairdo's for some of the women in the family. We are going to be stylin'.
And since I don't want to just do something for the girls in the family I also ordered these cool switchblade combs for the guys. But I already did that so it's not going on my list! Woo hoo! And since I've already confirmed with the hair lady (who always cuts my hair anyway) I don't have to remind her but I do have to remind myself now to make sure to pick up some snacks at Trader Joes over the weekend to serve on Friday afternoon. ACCCCKKKK!
4. Snacks for hair-do party.
Which makes me recall that I need to send an e-mail out to everyone coming to get dolled up that they are supposed to wash and dry their hair before they arrive.
5. Send hair reminder out.
The natural segue to the hair reminder, of course is that WW II toy gliders that I got for favors for the guys and table decor (Another Lisa find!) need assembled. 6. Make husband assemble gliders for tables.
And now, because my granddaughter is supposed to be taking a nap I'm going to go into the dining room...by the Chuckles candy... and start sorting that out! But the list still looms large.
So I guess that should make the next thing on the list be:
7. Take up drinking for relaxation!
Which will never work because I'm allergic to alcohol, dang it.
