    Hello my coconut buddies:

    In my travels to party supply sites, I found these colorful items for the patch:

    Neon colored coconut cups....they look like the real thing...with a lid and hole for straw, but they are made in colors God never intended to be natural.

    Palm tree-in pool-cooler. Just the place to keep our tropical drinks cold.

    Luau print toilet paper - no explanation needed.

    Luau dog costume...for the little red dog.

    ********* and the pi`ece de r`esistance ***********

    An apron for women depicting (from the neck down) a shapely girl (nothing sagging) with a coconut bra and grass skirt. She is wearing flower leis, but I can get florescent feather boas to add authenticity for the patch members.

    An apron for men (goat, bildo?) depicting a toned and tan man wearing a grass skirt and a lei made from green leaves. Of course, you will be adding your own special feather boas. I found animal print feather boas. (I'm not kidding).

    There are many accessories, palm leaf fans, hibiscus shaped rings, craft kits...we will be busy for weeks on end!

    What fun it would be.

    Maggie

    I have bought a lot of things for my daughter's bridal shower and things for personal touches for the reception. Of course I search for coupons. I just placed an order for $105 and got $20 off and free shipping! I love a bargain, especially as money is flying out the door (or in this case, over the internet).

    I bet I could outfit the patch and all us coconuts for $100.

    Maggie looks at herself in the mirror....and the Mirror Maggie speaks.....get a grip, honey. There is a limit to what you can do and you already know the UPS driver by name......

    Maggie sighs....and talks back to the mirror....yes, you are right, I have to stop. I'll just log off now and go take my nap............................................

    shhh.........Maggie pokes her head out from under the desk.....does anyone see the Mirror Maggie around? I just want to check out one more site............

    That was a great deal that you got!! I like the Oriental Trading Company for their fair prices, and they have a huge selection of stuff too. I love looking through their catalogs too- such a variety of stuff! We could go cocoshopping to outfit everyone! Now that sounds fun!
