And it inspired me to order these:
B is a huge SF sports fan and these happen to be his favorite teams. I found the garters at Etsy shop, Garters by Kristi . I didn't want four garters, so I convo'd Kristi and she refered me to her website, where I could order any garter separately. I ordered the "keepsake" (top) SF Giants without he pouf and the "toss" 49ers all for around $30 with shipping. No too bad. I started to think about having someone make them for me, but I think the $30 is worth not having to hassle with buying fabric, elasitc, ribbon and those cute little gold footballs and baseballs. I know B will love it!

Love these flowers. Fresh. Beautiful colors.
Ok. I'm sold on these nice, large dahlia bouts. I hope we can find them in a nice raspberry.
Ok. I'm in love with this response card. Enthused, country, adorable.

After about a month of dating, B asked me to make chocolate chip cookies for dessert one night. He directed me to the flour and sugar and grabbed a bag of Nestle chips from the freezer. I reached for a mixing bowl and got to work. Moments later I called to him, "Measuring cups?" he responded with, "just eyeball it" his round about way of saying he didn't own any, "ok," I laughed, "how about a mixer?" He came into the kitchen and handed me a hand cranked egg beater thingy. I think I injured my wrist. Somehow my cookies came out ok, albeit a little doughy (overestimated on the flour). The very next day I was buying measuring cups and spoons from the dollar spot at Target. I brought my handheld electric mixer from my apartment, and we were pretty much set.

Here's what I'm picturing: A craft-colored box with a layer of dried lavender inside. Lying over the lavender is our invite, tucked away in it's fabric sleeve. A matching ribon is keeping all of the inserts together inside of the sleeve. One of the inserts instructs the invitee to make their own lavender scented sachet with the fabric sleeve, dried lavender and ribbon. Am I being hysterical in thinking that someone will actually do this? I have to say, I think I would love it, but it could be a giant waste...
Materials needed: Paper for invite and insterts, Calligrapher (I have already hired a fabulous one), fabric, thread, sewing machine, ribon, lavender, box, labels. Postage. We will have about 65-75 invites at this point. Am I crazy?
**ok, ETA, I'm adding this up and it may be too costly. Calligraphy and sewn pockets are for sure. We'll have to see about the lavender...

I love how none of these girls are wearing bridesmaids dresses. This is what I want-just a fun dress!
