Amy's (one of our Romancing the Home girls) wedding reception is in 2 weeks and the entire Romancing the Home staff is hosting it for her and her new husband John! Everyone is involved in the food preparation and decor of the event. So for the next 2 weeks, I'll be sharing our progress as we prepare for the party. It's time for me to do those chores one puts off -like getting the summer cobwebs down! As the party is at my home, Mr. RTH spent the weekend in the garden, freshening up the borders. We finished the music playlist for the party- full of new and old love songs- with input from everyone. Downloading the menu card from The Graphics Fairy, we typed in the names of the foods and printed them on parchment card stock. Hand colored and glittered, they are now ready to identify the items on the buffet. Laurell came over yesterday with the mirrors that she had antiqued for the old gilded frames that will be used as the food trays. While she was over, we found this delightful "Let them eat cake" martini in Tori Spelling"s new book - "CelebraTORI. We decided that they would be perfect for the sweets table - so things keep changing as we go! We are having so much fun planning this!
