Preference dinner party, Footloose themed

The Preference dinner party, Footloose themed-  came off great! As you can see, we ended up with about 8 inches of snow which was gorgeous but chilly when it came time to take pictures outside. I’ll let the photos tell the story…

But wait… there’s more! …about a million more pictures I’m still editing. So check back for more photo fun very soon.

Behind the scenes, a How-To.
More Footloose party preparations.

    This looks like great fun! The first picture was just beautiful! The dress was perfect and looked fantastic on her. The table setting perfect! What a great mom you are to make this a wonderful memory for your daughter and her friends that they will tell fondly to their grandchildren! Loved it all!

      Aww, thanks. I hope the memories are good and don’t start with, “your grandmother was so over the top and crazy…”!

        I’m pretty sure that my daughter will be saying that to her son many times over the years! 🙂

      Thanks girl! Teens can be kinda fun and entertaining- even as you’re throwing Downton Abbey style parties for them with you and the other siblings as the entire staff of servants! Special memories for all!
