We were able to choose between a 12 inch or 24 inch long block and then we chose our color to paint it.
After our painted blocks were dry, it was time to apply the vinyl letters. Mandy had many expressions that we could choose from and there really was an expression for everyone! I chose: "Memories" and "Friends, Food, Laughter".
Mandy then showed us how we could sand the edges of our blocks to give it a weathered look; this was an optional step, some people did it and others left their blocks completely painted.
And of course, what's a party without food?!?! (I'll be posting the recipes on my recipe blog soon!)
The finished products. Don't they just look fabulous? I had such a great time and I know the other ladies did too! Mandy is available for parties at your house too, so if you live in the West Michigan area, be sure to check out her site!
