The beverage and pie station.
The lunch table.
We made boxed lunches for each guest: curry chicken salad sandwiches, mason jars filled with corn salad, potato chips in baggies and animal cookies. Fruit and veggies were served family style at the table.
Kristin MADE this game called "Chuck a Bob", named after Amy and Dave's dog Bob. We hung photos of Dave and Amy from the last 10 years, many morphed to look like fun mirrors from the circus.
Kristin photoshopped a circus hat onto Bob, printed them on fabric, and then SEWED beanbags for us to toss.
Heidi was the "Chuck a Bob" champion. She won a gift certificate to Whole Foods. I was jealous. Of her win and this awesome photo.
The table again:
And ps - Heidi sewed the bunting banner.
Double PS: Katherine made these letters.
Triple PS: We each (Darrah, Katherine, Heidi and myself) each baked a pie for the unofficial pie contest that Amy judged and awarded ribbons for. Quadruple PS: I won.

We also banded together and hired Sheila the Psychic. She read palms, did numerology for each guest and brought some hippy native american tarot cards that I didn't really understand (or like), but maybe that's because I kept pulling weird animals like otter while other people kept pulling cards that meant they would get their heart's desire. It was fun though.
And I liked it when she had us burn "wish papers" for Amy. The photo isn't super clear, but when you touch the paper to the flame (after making your wish for Amy) it flashes in a quick flame that disappears and floats away at the same time.
