Lily added a free hand butterfly at the end freehand! Of course she used her artistic license wisely!!! the colors were perfect!
Also, remember the canvas I painted? I showed it to you when it was in progress? Well, I did get it finished! whew!
Our napkins tied with colorful raffia and a lifesaver which continues with the boating theme:
Remember the fishing net? It became the table runner for the head table, after I made it a light grey by soaking it in paint mixed with water, remember?
Head table with netting, shells and flowers

How “anchored” banner was made: precut wooden letters from Michael’s were painted with pool blue craft paint! Cut out a triangle for each letter of foam paper then the painted letters were hot glued to the foam paper. Orange paper was glued on the back of the triangle to add a little contrast color along the edge to make the colors pops. Then holes were punched on the top edge and yellow ribbon was tied on through the holes. This is how the triangle was attach to the rope. This helped the letters hang evenly once the rope was suspended.
Remember the buoys? If not, click here to be reminded, what they looked like before I painted them like this:
Voila, our “anchored banner” complete!
Lastly, Mom made this arrangement of coral flowers for the head table in this seashell! We all thought the roses were so perfect they looked like paper! Word to the wise…make sure you always make the table arrangements low enough that people can talk over them. Also, always make sure they are the right width for the table.
