    Good morning ladies. I just wanted to let you all know that there is a groupon for mixbook today. I know I want to get a few albums done, so this should work out well. It's $15 for $50 value.

        Hey Ladies!!! I am back! Greece was amazing and the best trip of my life. The scenery and people were amazing! I had my birthday there and it was perfect. I have all the pics on facebook if anyone is interested in seeing them, just let me know and I will add you or you can add me. Name is already changed on there to Lisa Dias.

         

        Kinda freaking out about my AHR also.It's July 2nd, we have 130 people coming and I feel like I haven't done anything yet and I am just counting on all the stuff I had down south and I am going to try and make the decorations work there but I won't end up having the same centerpieces on every table. Do you think that is bad?

         

         

        I am supposed to have my professional pics tomorrow but I think he is going to be late which will leave me no time to develop or make a photobook and I am freaking out about this a bit. I may have to use guest pics ughhhh

         

         


        Greece sounds amazing.  I sent you a FB request too so I can see these pics:)  What a fabulous place to celebrate a Bday!  I'm sorry you're also freaking out about AHR stuff.  No, I don't think it's bad to not have the same centerpieces on every table...in fact, NONE of mine matched!  Just go with it:)  Did you get your pics from your photog?!?

        Erin, I'm sorry you've been sick!  I also have been a complete slacker and PROMISE to get those "l-o-v-e" plates weighed and pm you before this weekend.  Thanks for your patience:)  I've been enjoying not doing anything wedding related....apparently a little too much;)

Ours is too.... mostly because I had a mental breakdown on Saturday morning and freaked out at my hubby because this AHR is in his hometown. I don't know 3/4 of the people going, and the 1/4 that is going I mostly don't like!! He hasn't once asked what needed to be done or if he could help and has no clue what is happening with it. There was just so much left to do and I was completely overwhelmed... so ya... I lost it. He was awesome though and sprang right into action getting things done. Right now he is en route to the cupcake store to drop off a swatch so they can match the icing!

         

        For ladies looking for ways to display some sweets I found some awesome vintage plates and candle holders at Value Village that I'm gluing together to make cake stands (or in this case macron stands) Then I made a cupcake stand out of cardboard cake rounds, painted cans and vinyl drawer paper that matches the exact patterns on the escort cards! The place cards are actually mini flags that will be stuck into a mini galvanized pail filled with wrapped blue salt water taffy. Lots of sugar for a brunch but we purchased cupcake boxes from the cupcake place so people can take it all home.

         

        I also made buntings out of rectangle lace paper doilies and blue ribbon that I can swag across the tent ceiling and ordered a printable guest book "tree" poster that people put their finger print "leaves" on out of ink. It was awesome actually. A girl on Etsy designed it for me, I sent the file to staples and it came out perfect. The whole guest book design and printing was less than $20!

         

        Sorry about the info dump, the AHR is on Saturday so I'm just so anxious to get it all together!

        How'd it go Meggers?!?  Great idea about the vintage plates!!

Now to start baking stuff for the freezer and deciding what other sweet and/or savory items to include. Since we are expecting about 70 people, I think I would like to have 10 different items. Here's my list so far if anyone has suggestions:

         

        1. Cupcakes
        2. Cake Balls
        3. Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
        4. Kettle Style Popcorn
        5. Homemade Marshmallows
        6. Macarons

         

         

         

         


        What about chocolate covered strawberries?  I love those.  And I have a SUPER easy recipe to make them if you want it!!

        We did a lot of talk/planning for our AHR yesterday and I feel a bit better now.

        We got to go look at the hall again as it was all set up for an afternoon wedding.  They only had a setup for 60 people (we're going to end up somewhere close to 80) so it was nice to see that it didn't actually look to bad in the big room.  We're just going to spread things out by putting only 6 people per table.

        As for centerpieces, we did find some vases at dollarama which we're going to go back to purchase.  Then we're thinking putting a layer of sand, some seashells and floating a large flower in them... maybe a green chrysanthemums perhaps?

        1275820293Tc8IsJ.jpg

        I also bought some frames at dollarama (i think they're the same ones you got mocha) which we're going to use for the table numbers.  We didn't originally plan on doing a seating chart, but after discussing it, figured it would make things easier the day of.  I got some turquoise spray paint at michaels for the frames and for the numbers, I plan on just picking different photos from our trip/wedding and incorporating the number into them on photoshop.  And to finish up the tables, my mom and I found some sparkly turquoise jewel/stones which we'll sprinkle on the tables.  We're also going to have white chair covers just to keep things clean looking.

         

        As for a cake, I've decided that I will make chocolate cupcakes and frost some in white butter cream and some in turquoise butter cream.  I found a wicked piece at Home Sense yesterday which I'm going to use as a cupcake stand, along with a few other cake stands and trays.  MIL also has some really cool conk shells and other big shells which we'll use to decorate the cake table and other areas.

         

        We still have a lot to figure out, but with less than 2 weeks to go, I'm glad it's finally starting to come together a bit better.  It's going to be such a busy few weeks though. Can't wait till it's done and we can relax!!

        Wow Laura, you've been a DIY queen for your AHR!  Please share some pics when you can!  And yes, it's so nice to unwind and relax once your AHR is over!!

         

         

         

         

        Which of you girls got married at Now Jade?  I have a friend getting married there in November and couldn't remember which one of us April girls it was.  I hope you all are having a nice day!  It's 100 degrees here today.....and living in the midwest means I'm way to far from the ocean to enjoy it.

          Hey Greys and Brandy, I am not sure why but I didn't get the facebook request from you or brandy, I wonder what is going on with it, maybe it's the name change, try Lisa Hanninen or PM me you full name and I will add you guys.

           

          I am the one that got married at Now Jade. Any questions let me know.

           

          I got the internet link to all my pics yesterday but it is all the pics and there are sooooo many, some not so good and others amazing. He is mailing the CD today or tomorrow so I should have it early next week via DHL from Mexico. I love a bunch of the photo session and TTD.  If anyone wants to see it send me a pm or facebook request and I will send the link. Ivan luckie was my photographer and does a great job!
