Miscellaneous Errands

I took a 5 hour lunch today to get some stuff done =) I figured that since I average about 8 hours overtime each week (at least); I don't take lunch; the product is in QA with only minor fixes (in the components that I did anyway) from time to time; and QA has my cell number, I could bugger off for half a day here and there.

I went over to Dressew, fighting road construction, a filming crew and lack of parking on the way. I saw ribbon. Oodles of ribbon. A lot cheaper than the metallic trim organza ribbon on the bouquets. =) *sigh* I am just destined to like things that cost too much =)

I found white, pink and red ribbon in two different widths, so I got a meter of each so that Bernice can play with it and get a better idea of which we should use, how much of it we need and what colour.

I asked about the pins with the stoppers and they didn't have any at Dressew. They only had the corsage pins. The lady told me that if it's pinned on properly, it won't jab you. *sigh* It's a matter of tutoring 40+ Uncles, Aunts, and other family members to pin it properly.

I also got my poofy ring pillow. I got more pearl sprays. I got a limo deco thing. I ordered custom bows for the cake serving set and champagne flutes. I bought the cake serving set with the crystal-esque handles so that Askel can put the bows on them for me. I didn't get the champagne flutes yet. I might just get two from the Bay that have the frosty design and get Askel to put the bows on those for me.

I'm buying decoration things in dribs and drabs. Askel might get more stuff after the March Wedding Show. I'll need about 150-200 pom-pom flowers for the limo. I'm strapping a Hello Kitty Bride and Dear Daniel Groom stuffies in front for the hood ornament; the big heart/pom-pom deco thing on the back with streamers coming out of it; and pom-pom flowers all over the limo body.
