I'll back up this week & give you a peek at our Christmas stage. I say this every time, but THIS IS MY FAVORITE STAGE SET EVER!!! OMGosh! So beautiful! It will get it's own post, as will the mason jar lights....and the wreaths! :D

Rudy (bass) & Angi (keys & vocal) make us the most wonderful little decadent treats. Their chocolate sets them in their own league. I'm not a sweets person naturally & I can't stay out of these!

Loving the set with lights! I even thought, "wow, way to go tech arts crew...for knowing Pantone's 2014 Color: Radiant Orchid!" These guys are way ahead of the curve!

Here goes another row of mason jar lights. The strands have 50 bulbs/jars on them, which takes 4-5 adults to carry into place.
