There's a good reason I've been so skimpy with my blog posting lately.
My friends and I (Cyndi and Barb) have been working furiously on the wedding reception for my friend's daughter, Stephanie.
The reception was last night, and it was beautiful!
Her colors were champagne and blush, very soft and romantic.
She would have loved an outdoor reception, but with the heat of May here in Phoenix she went with the regular "Mormon church gym reception." I think it was a smart move.
Stephanie fell in love with this fabric and wanted to use it puddled on the tables. She also wanted a lot of glass. We added interest with glitter and monograms. The tall vases held white glittered branches and a series of photographs inside.
We used enormous black and white photos, branches, and draped walls, to cover up the ugly gym walls. Cyndi hung the lights and the white "fabric" from the ceiling and may have developed carpal tunnel from stripping all the branches.
There was LOTS of fabric behind the food tables, which covered up the gym stage.
I made this card box from a couple of floral stationery boxes, a little leftover bride's maid fabric, and felt flowers.
It was fun to add a few little extra details, like pictures of the bride and groom as kids hung on the bathroom doors. (Thank goodness for Command Strips).
Also, a little something for the bathroom counter.
The sign in table had a gorgeous picture taken at the temple, and more of the beautiful hydrangeas that we used in the centerpieces.
I love the topper they used!
Barb rocked the food!
Bundts, chocolate strawberries, 3 kinds of truffles, dipped rice crispy treats, candy, and popcorn.
All pretty, and all delicious.
I loved how the bundt cakes looked on the tables.
The popcorn bar was a hit, especially with the kids.
I cut a lot of vinyl for this wedding, and labeled all the buckets and jars.
It took us two months to prep, and two full days to set up, but seeing Stephanie's face when she walked in was worth it.
Barb and Cyndi.....thanks for the fun!
