Gary the garland.He was made out of a lot of fabric, which involved a lot of tearing or cutting and what felt like the beginnings of tennis elbow and some twine.
I was pretty certain it packed a fair punch in the visual stakes. We went for a carnival colour theme which was perfect for a baby boy, no?
Tools required on the day....
The coffee turned out to be a necessity for Amy....a coffee and kisses from Jed.
Oh, the little paper doilys I'm holding in front of the garland were from the $1 store and I spelt out Hudson's name on them and made a bunting. I was inspired by my clever friend Michelle,she had made doily bunting for her salon a little while back. I banked it.
Side note.....when holding a garland, that weird bending banana stance is the way to go. Aka, I have no upper arm strength, Gary was heavy and my body was buckling.
