We were at an annual 3-day gathering with a bunch of friends during the time of the royal wedding.
Before going Lee and I had the idea of making paper dolls with our friend's faces.
Each friend was presented their paper doll wrapped with an invitation to the wedding.
The guys got to choose from different outfits that I had printed from a paper doll book featuring Chuck and Di's wedding. In fact, all our doll's bodies are theirs, as well. You can see that book on the corner of table next to Lee who is gluing metallic trim to the braids on his uniform.
These paper dolls were featured as the center piece for the table. Here's the first night's table decor.
One of the ladies celebrated her birthday the next day. The bouquet of roses from her husband was perfect for us to gather around in our finery. That couple had the honor of standing next to Prince Philip and the Queen.
The last day I lined all the dolls up for a group shot.
In reality, we ladies donned hats the day of the wedding.
I had worn the pink feathered one during the very early morning ceremony. Lee wore his best Elvis necktie with his night clothes.
Later in the day we dressed more appropriately.
Well, I did anyway.
The frivolity of our tongue-in-cheek play with the royal wedding was a welcome distraction from the devastating weather raging through the south. All of us had personal connections and worry for what was going on "back home" and to people we cared about who lived close to where those tornadoes touched down.
Lee and I came home to find many of our trees nearly stripped of their leaves, those leaves piled several inches deep all over the ground, marble sized dings in our newly painted siding and Volkswagen, broken outside light fixtures, and screens full of holes. Thank goodness we were spared broken windows, downed trees ... and tornado touchdowns.
