The couple whose wedding shower I did, asked me to do their wedding reception as well. With the help of Courtney, we're pulling together what I think is quite a meaningful and heart-and-hand-created event. Here are two pix to get you curious. For the centerpieces we are using books, covering them with white paper, and decorating the fronts, backs and spines with cut-out-portions-of and full paper doilies. For the candles, I've been buying cheap brass candlesticks at thrift stores and took today to spray paint them all white.
I took one of my vacation weeks this week to prepare for the wedding event coming up this Saturday. Courtney and I have the bridal luncheon on Friday and then do the reception set-up Friday evening.
After this weekend, my concentration will turn to Harleigh's senior year, her college choices, our office Thanksgiving Feast, and Ali's bridal shower and wedding reception. There is a folder for each and there isn't an evening that goes by that I'm not brainstorming and note-taking to make each and every milestone and event special.
