S&ST #7

Tali's first swim meet is coming up, and it's a Luau theme. Apparently there is some prize they have won several years in a row that goes to the team with the supporters who dress the best in the theme.
I may be completely inept at the rest of the sports mom stuff, but costumes I can do.

The background of this is my Muumuu, floral and parrot print. I didn't like any of the leis that the store had on hand, so I bought a garland and made my own with the help of fishing line and coffee straws. I also made a leaf only one which will go on someone I am sure, along with the handful of store bought leis. I took some shells from my room and drilled out the center. Some earring hooks and beading wires and the earrings are done!
I have pink grass skirts for each of the girls, and one for me in classic tan. James has Hawaiian print swim trunks.
I seriously considered a tiki mask for James, but I really don't have time before the big day.
Now if I could only remember the Hula dance Mini P. taught me in Kirtland.

Very clever! Looking forward to seeing the costumes on you and the kidlets! Or will you blend in so well with the rest of the crowd that I'll have to get out the magnifier?...oh, wait, I have to do that now! LOL

Hey, Jordan, is "serdersp" a flower or a tree in monilla? Just checking...
