I am not the best Facebook or Blog "keeper upper"....(if that is a word). I am so behind and I have noticed in Blogland lots of others are just about as slow in posting as me. Life seems to be so busy right now. I thought when my children got older it would get better. Still waiting. Speaking of children.......
My son Andrew got married to Lauren and they are so in love!! The wedding looked like something out of Southern Living Magazine. Lauren's mom, Barbara, did a great job pulling Lauren and Andrew's ideas together. I will post those pictures later.
I thought that I would share a little of the Rehearsal Dinner that my husband and I hosted along with my sister Margaret and her husband. It was a buffet supper at my sisters club, Walnut Creek Country Club in Goldsboro, NC. My friend Ellen helped me pull together an idea that I had from about 5 years ago. My son always grew up with blue and white ceramics, in our home, so I wanted to incorporate this with Lauren's colors of Navy, Green and Pink.
Ellen found the beautiful luxurious table cloths at a rental place in Wilmington. She then took grosgrain ribbon and wrapped around small votives. We rented navy blue napkins and had the menu printed on a creamy colored card, printed in navy blue.
The ceramic pieces were picked up at a local store, Tomlinsons, it is a warehouse store with all kinds of neat things including everything from hunting gear, to beautiful lamps and diamonds. This was the Bride and Groom table. My friend Ellen found these picture frames and spray painted them white for the table numbers. This table was special with 3 flower arrangements, which Ellen just put together that afternoon while we set up.
