My friend Rachel (not me in third person, she really is a friend named Rachel) seems to pull off Martha projects effortlessly. Rachel planned and beautifully executed a bridal shower for my sister that Martha would have been proud of.
I played a small part in this by making some paper garlands some book stacks and ribbon bunting, but the prize goes to Rachel for the overall feel and look of the party.
Feast your eyes!
