lots of folks helped pull this all together & my momma steph was running the show. everything was perfectly darling and i hope that steph felt well loved & celebrated. marriage is such a blessing & i hope this was just one of the many highlights in preparing for that.
the food was am-az-zaz-ing. i had no part in that. i brought some props & bowls - that was food contribution. ha ha ha. they must know about me & the kitchen. they've figured me out.
i loved the way that the tables turned out. my momma made these little terrariums with rocks, soil & flowers & i think they are perfect! cream table cloths, burlap runners, doilies & many love story frames made the perfect place for a celebration. for the little love quotes i just got some metallic dollar store frames and very light pink textured cardstock. then i took these precious free, printable table numbers & replaced the number with sweet sayings.
i was 'in charge' of game duty. i wanted something that wouldn't take too much time away from socializing & celebrating but that would be a little special & fun. first we just did a perfect match game where you fill in the missing half of the couple. nothing too crazy but it was fun to have a span of ages in the room and have that reflected in the game. different generations definitely could identify certain couples over others and that was sweet.
for the second game, we had a little bit of a he said, she said theme. the idea was
stolen borrowed from here & i just tweeked the details. i cut out enough mustaches & lips for each guest to have one of each. i took 6 "quotes" or statuses [12 total] from the bride and groom's facebook. the guests had to guess who said it after each was read outloud. some quotes were sweet, some funny & some in between in hopes to trip a few people up.
