My 30th...Timeline

After shopping for all the needs for the party (food & decorations), I plan my time line. It went something like this (of course I did go a little off schedule-I have 3 kids & my husband is away)...always give yourself a little extra time...
Monday
*Shop for cloth, non perishable food
Tuesday-Wednesday
*Basic cleaning, have the house ready
Thursday
*Shop for flowers & perishables
(I always like to have a second shopping trip...
I usually forget at least one thing the first time)
*Arrange flowers
* Cover Italian Syrup & Club Soda Bottles
*Lay out table (make sure you like everything, before you start sewing & final prep)
*Make candle holders
Friday
* Bake layers for cake
* Sew table runners & napkins
* Arrange Furniture
* Set Table
Saturday
Morning:
*Last minute straitening
*Assemble & frost the cake
