Mr. Harold Camping thinks it is the end of the world. So we are going out in style.
Today was our reception to celebrate our
2 month old marriage beautiful new marriage. I’m kidding.
early (and by early I mean almost 9am)
I started making more Rice-Crispie Treats for our chocolate fountain and dessert table, and I got a phone call from my Daddio, asking what I was doing. Didn’t think anything of it.
15 minutes later…The doorbell rang. “Who the heck could that be?”. Crap. Our foreclosed house sold. Were getting kicked out the day of our reception. *FACEPALM* Yep. Thats me, always thinking worst case scenario.
*opens door* “Oh hello beautiful BIG wicker basket full of treats, welcome to my doorstep, come on in. Wait. Who the flip is this from? – CHADDDD!!!!!”
*Small head peaks around corner* “DADDDYYYYY!!!” Yep. Daddy flew in to surpise us!!
I finished cooking while catching up with Daddio, Karen and Jim arrived and we loaded up the Vanagan and they took off to start setting up. I got ready, and headed over to set up:
-We had an entry table, were people could sign a frame we purchased at JoAnns, and there was pictures from the cruise, some shells and other decorations…
-We borrowed white tableclothes from the church, and set up tables and chairs…I found these really cool nets (via 99c store – booyah) that felt really nautical, so I put those on the tables, then put some vases with the glitter swirly things, sand (from Santa Cruz) and shells….and then some dollar store frames with some pictures on each table…Pretty simple, but it looked really pretty…when the wind wasn’t blowing over the pictures, and tangling the netting.
I think things turned out great. I’m super happy. We had a big dessert table with two chocolate fountains, tons of bulk candy in small containers with little shovels. We had cellophane bags people could take candy, and plates to eat it here. LOTS of soda, cucumber and lemon water…lanters that we bought from OrientalTrading.com….
A radical playlist (High Five to the hubs)….and PRESENTS!! *YAY!*
Here are a couple pictures from our dessert table….I LOVED it!! I am so glad that I spent the most time planning on this. THANK YOU to Terri Fairbanks, Cyndie Parker, Stephanie Greenlee, Rachel Smith, Nikki Buell, Lisa Huerta for your food, set up and take down help, chocolate fountaints and your love…
We also had a little “picture booth”, courtesy of Terri Fairbanks and her backdrop, and help with bunting…we set up a table with a bunch of props from the Harlow family…and some moustaches I made last month…It was a hit!! All the pictures are posted to a Shutterfly account…
It was a fun day – I am very thankful that it is all over and now we can just be married, and not worried about buying candy, tableclothes, sound systems, play lists….or anything else. PHEW. Thanks to everyone who stopped by!! We love and appreciate your support!
Mr. Harold Camping you crazy old man. You were wrong – we are all still alive!! Muahahah!!!
