Her arm was broken. I felt awful.
No more throwing up. The garage door got fixed today. The birthday cake is all gone. She’s done with soccer for the season (is it so bad that I am secretly THRILLED??) We all had a good night’s sleep. Thank you for your comments that made me laugh and feel so much better.
Here are some ideas from my sister’s reception in Montana I said I would share with you all:
First of all, on the way down set things up at the reception site, we had to stop at some yard sales. Of course.
Look what my cute sil Kristine found! It was *free* and she is going to turn it into a chalkboard. I had to restrain myself since I was flying home, but I got a few frames.
Okay, back to the reception. We wanted to put something with the flowers, so my mom got some good old dollar tree frames and spray painted them. It was her first spray painting project and she did AWESOME!
We put love quotes in some…
Totally stole this from Edie’s sign on her mantel.
Totally stole this idea from Beth (the quote on the take home candy table) and put it in a spray painted yard sale frame:
My sister Kelsey found these other black frames at her Dollar Tree and we put cute pictures of the happy couple inside:
The cek: (in Fronk voice)
It was a gorgeous setting on a golf course, but it was freezing after 5 p.m., so we were mostly inside.
More love quotes:
It was late, I could barely keep my eyes open and I needed one more love quote and here is what came to my mind…Bambi! I got major flack from my brothers on this one. It just says, “from Bambi” on the bottom. Ooooh, I forgot to tuck that edge under too. Oh well.
We wanted to put something in the entryway to kind of draw attention away from the plaques on the wall, so we did this:thanks to my Dad for being official branch gatherer!The pictures are not good~it was so beautiful in dim light! If I did another reception, I would gather tons of branches and put these in the center of all the tables.
We used battery operated votives from Costco because we were kind of worried about those sticks catching fire… These hanging votives were 1.99 each (we got them here), but you could totally rig something up with some wire and regular votive cups as well. It would be such a big impact for just the cost of the votives, containers, and some free branches. How beautiful would it be for a Christmas arrangement as well?
This was our inspiration picture:
Any great reception ideas you’ve seen or done yourself lately?
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday~
