You just feel glad to have been a part of it when you see the first three year old walk through the doors, holding her daddy’s hand, and wearing a wrist corsage. Or while watching countless dads with pink sweaters hooked to their belts while dancing, because their little girls were getting hot. Or all those teenage girls being escorted into the dance in gowns, on the arm of their proud fathers. It was priceless. My girls asked if they could wear crowns, and I said “of course you can!” We are all in when it comes to their night with their dad, and they love it. We were asked to add a few updates to the decor for the evening. In keeping with our theme verse from Ephesians, and focusing on the idea of being rooted in love, we built trees for the table tops. We attached lit branches to the stands and covered them in butterflies to make the little girls happy.
The ice sculpture table in the foyer was wrapped with a pink tulle skirt that we made by tying strips of tulle to a long ribbon, and then attaching around the edge of the table. It was lovely and feminine and I now want a tulle skirt.
We updated the look of the photo booths by draping the backdrops in ribbon. Though the photo booths are mainly for girls and their dads,some of the girls can’t help themselves. Darling!
Everyone entered through lit branches and butterflies.
And most importantly , our verse from Ephesians.
