After Target, we ventured out to Garden Ridge because of a rumor about lots of purple and silver Christmas decorations. That's pretty much what it was- just a rumor. Not a lot of purple stuff. Jacob saved the day however- he found glass ball ornaments in packages of 24 in the exact color we needed on the back of a huge display. Well, all of the reachable ornaments were either the wrong color or they were broken. So, being the shopping engineer that I am, I decided to crawl back into the shelves that back up to the display and sit in the middle of the display and go through the packages. It was quite a sight. I'm pretty sure I scared a little kid pretty bad who was putting something back for his mom and saw me. We ended up getting some cases of broken and not broken ornaments and combining them into complete unbroken sets. Quite smart if you ask me. Sorry to whoever is left with the cases of completely broken ornaments. We needed them for the wedding- sorry.
The good news about this shopping trip was that we got the majority of the decorations. Actually, that's really good news. And- because we're going to have an overabundance of silver and purple ornaments, I'm thinking about attaching little thank you notes to them and having people take one as they leave the reception as part of the party favors. Thoughts?
