Good Job! I also did a trial run at home before my brother-in-law's reception. One thing I learned is to Be gentle. You'd think I would know that, but no. I forgot just how gentle you have to be with these puppies.
Also, doesn't matter how you open or seperate the layers, you can always fluff and adjust any way you need to. Right now I have a pretty cream one decorating my dining room until It's time to haul all my tissue paper to NV
