I made a two bases, and I'm thinking I might need one more. Granted, they will look much better with all the candy stuck in them. I also have to find the right font for the flag on top so it doesn't look lame. Here is a pic of my bases:
I also tried out a couple of tissue poms. I had to learn not to pull them too hard or you end up with ripped "petals." I have them hanging in the hall and its driving my pups crazy when they blow in the air conditioning. I think I heard Bruiser run down the hall and try to jump and eat one. He tries hard to look so innocent:

And now for the deal of a lifetime. We stopped by Target to pick up a bottle of wine (which was much needed by then) and just happened to go by the dress department. I pointed out a cute tank dress in this awesome lawn green color. Mom thought it would be a great going away dress, but I thought it would work for the bridesmaids. Its fully lined and has the "wearability factor" that I promised the girls. Best yet...they were only $39.99 and they had all the sizes I needed!!! We'll be able to accessorize them to death and still be on a great budget!! Plus, it would cut down on the sewing for my mom. The color looks awesome with so many colors. Here is a picture, but its on a camera phone and under store lights...
So, keep in mind when looking for bridesmaid's dresses, they can be anywhere!!
Lastly, I tried on the mock up dress that my mom had to put together to see if the shape was right. She used three patterns to get the look we wanted. I must say, she nailed it perfectly. I absolutely love it! I couldn't be happier. We also found all the material for it on Saturday while shopping and it was all 40-50% off!
I hope to have more weekends this productive!
