Default You want me to do what with this tutu??

So, unless anyone can give me any brilliant ideas, I'm preparing myself to make the ugliest tutu in the history of tutus. The little girl's birthday theme is "ivy" and momma wants a green tutu and headband decorated with ivy. No flowers, no gemstones...just ivy. I talked her into doing a couple of different greens and ivory tulle for the tutu. I am the furthest thing from a pessimist, but I just don't see how this will look nice in pictures! Ideas?? Thoughts?? Thanks!!

Add some glitter spray to the ivy to give it a little pazzaz or find some that has some organza type leaves. Then take the leaves off the vine and layer and stack them to make a pretty waistband. Then you can add some Korked ribbon tendrals. Look at this for idea for waisband:

Didn't look at the pic yet but that sounds like a great idea

I figured I would do the waist like that, but korkers would be a GREAT idea! I knew someone could help me

Apple green is a gorgeous green in tutu's! ivory mixed in and its perfect! for the headband i would think more like a "ivory ribbon strands mixed with the ivy leaves? " like a crown type something you would find on a fairy/pixie --

Well, here it is! What you can't see are the korkers scattered, glitter sprayed and the leaves on the headband. Didn't turn out so bad after all

Why does everyone think that's so weird? Goodness we all have a right to like what we like. Honestly I think it's a cute and fresh idea! If I go to one more Pooh or Dora party I'll puke!!!!!

Why complain about a paying customer? Some of us would be glad to be selling so much.

I am QUITE thankful for each and every order that comes through. I just wanted to make sure this tutu was the cutest it could be for this sweet little face, and I knew that I could get some great ideas here.
