    Hi ladies,

    A good friend of mine is planning a 'surprise' wedding reception for she and her husband next month. This is their 2nd marriage so they went to Charleston, SC for a small, quiet wedding ... but she wants to have a small 'reception' type party for them on their anniversary.

    I'm trying to help her think of ideas and I know she wants pineapples to go along with their initial Charleston wedding 'theme.'

    They also wore black and white for their ceremony, but I suggested she also add some color to help make the setting 'pop.'

    It's being held in the one of the small ballrooms and verandas of their country club. Only about 50 people, with Malibu and Pineapple as their signature drink.

    Any ideas would be great. I want to help make her invites and do any decorating that I can for her. I knew you ladies would be great with ideas. It's going to be August 8, so time is of the essence, which means we can't get crazy, but some simple DIY things I can definitely get done.

      Ooh that sounds like a fun time and great location to work with. I know time is short....what about making a black and white pineapple monogram with their initials and using it for decor? Maybe pick one color to go with it and use it for runners or candles. Or can you get pics of them these last 2 years and assorted inexpensive frames and use them as table decor with candles? Pineapple leaves can make good decorations as well. Are they catering? I'm thinking individual pineapple upside down cakes would be cute but that sounds like a lot of work!

      That's all I can think of now but I bet you get great suggestions!

        Oh great ideas! I'm going to have her get together some pics of the two of them for sure!

        She is catering it through the Country Club. I'll mention the pineapple upside-down cake too!

        Keep 'em coming!!!
