The couples shower was a huge
success. Of course with all that went into it, I might be a bit
skewed in my judgment. However, I know I had fun .. and what do
I always say?? That's all that really matters <G> Seriously, it
was fun. I am not sure what the other guests expected when they
saw a red carpet. Most of the guests were older than the soon to
be bride and groom. I am not quite sure if they were just shy or
uninterested in being interviewed by the ULTIMATE HOLLYWOOD
I know we were outside in
107 degree weather and needless to say, everyone wanted back
into the house where the air conditioning was blowing cool
air. I was outside interviewing our guests. The neighbors
driving up and down the block were waiving and took a second
look. Steve claimed a few homes went up for sale because
there went the neighborhood lol
Not only still photos were taken but we did have a video of me
interviewing our guests and the future bride and groom to be.
This will be a memory of the day.
finished interviewing our guests, I went inside the house
until our GUESTS OF HONOR arrived. They were a little late due
to a small traffic accident on the road. Luckily, they were
not involved, but there was some traffic that was unavoidable.
They called so we knew what was going on. As they were got
closer to Bobbie and Cliff's home, they called again and we
all gathered outside like a Hollywood event and brought them
into the house. They loved the theme and took it all in as
fun. At that point everyone ate and drank and I went into
bathroom and changed. I had no idea how hot I was until I felt
the dripping from my wet hair onto my clothing.
The house was decorated with Hollywood and NY theater items.
Many playbills, Variety (magazine) Entertainment Weekly, a
directors chair and clap board, Hollywood maps of the stars,
Soap Opera Digest and ABC Soaps in Depth, CD's and DVD's of
"Mamma Mia," "Phantom of the Opera," "Jeckyl and Hyde,"
"Hairspray," and "Grease," just to name a few. The book,
"Hollywood Kids" by Jackie Collins, as well as other books
were on display: "The Real Ethel Mertz" and a book about
Dean Martin. Postcards of Hollywood and champagne with a bride
and groom with balloons hanging. . We bought some cupcakes and
sugar free cake and she designed stars on a stick and named
them with various Broadway shows as well as Hollywood movies.
We were able to get some Hawaiian leis and she made them into
name tags. This way there was no excuse for people not to
mesh. I must say Bobbie did a great job decorating. She has
an artist's eye for sure.
The party was fun and people
were incredibly generous to the couple. No one mentioned being
upset it was a pot luck event. Cliff cut up lots of fruit so
we had a tremendous fruit bowl. We had loads of soda, water
and Sangria and the most fabulous cake from Baskin Robbins.
(L) Stefanie, Maxine, Rebekah, Joe and in front Bobbie
a better view of the
cake with Rebekah and Joe
So we move on to another
day. They will be married Sept 7 in Minnesota. Bobbie is going
to the wedding and reception in Minnesota as is her daughter
and son-in-law. Steve and I will not be making it to
Minnesota, but we will go to the Las Vegas reception on Oct
18. . Nothing like being silly in front of friends and not
being the least bit embarrassed. Nothing more enjoyable than
having a plan, working on it and everyone not only
appreciates it, but has a great time to boot.
