Wedding Reception at Home- the Morning Of!

morning light in the dining room - so soft and dewy

gorgeooooous  flowers by Twigs- my fav

roes, hydrangeas, jasmine in soft pinks - so Amy

The box we made for Amy - a piece of old rhinestone jewelry from each of us is in the box.
Thank you Linda D. for the perfect box!

the wedding cake iced with organic edible sugared roses- 3 layers of chocolate, almond and red velvet

mini martini glasses with sugared rims ready for the dessert martinis

flower bouquets through the house of dahlias, butterfly plant, queen Anne's lace and apples from my neighbors tree

just taking the roasted grapes with sea salt and thyme out of the oven !

foyer table, blending the outside porch with the inside decor- rustic and sweet!

front porch ready for the party thanks to Candy and Penny!

apples, lavender, and mums

Mr. RTH built this stand for our mixture of  bar ware- been collecting odds and ends for a while now, so when one gets broken, no one has to feel bad.  Just go find another odd ball glass for the collection!

Candy and Penny created wonderful romantic vignettes on the porch tables

bar set up at the end of the porch

mona lavender plant and kale from Home Depot!  Pretty in the French planter from the store.

It is the morning of John and Amy's wedding reception and the house is very quiet at the moment. That will change in an hour!  Very soon  the RTH girls will arrive and the busy task of getting all the food ready for the table will begin!  But right now  it is fun to enjoy the decorations that Penny, Candy and I did yesterday.   We have a few more things to do with flowers this morning and need to finish setting up the bar.  I am looking forward to the day and hope it is everything that Amy and John would want!

Susan and RTH Girls....
It looks absolutely stunning and so perfect for Amy!
You've done a great job. It's been fun to watch the progress on the blog on a daily basis. All the little touches and details are incredible. You never cease to amaze me and still outdo yourself with every event.
Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures...
Here's to you and the girls for a job very well done.
I'm sure Amy and John will remember this for a life time. Cheers, Lynda Sue
