I recently put together a little wedding reception for some friends.
It turned out really nice. After having done large weddings for my daughters...I think small and intimate might be the way to go. A lot less stress, money and time for sure!
I purchased the cake from our grocers bakery and added some fresh flowers to the top as well as a wreath of fresh mint from my garden all around the edge of the cake. Tip: make sure you don't use poisonus flowers like Hydrangeas...ask me how I know :( Yes this is cake #2
I made lemonade using Country Time powedered mix.
Tip- Add some fresh lemon slices and fresh raspberries to make it look pretty. I also added some colorful French Macaroons on a square white plate for color.
Flowers- I bought 2 bouquets of flowers from Costco and seperated them into 3 different bouqets two for the table and 1 for side table Plus I used some for the cake...more bang for the buck!
Tip: Always incorporate some fresh fruit on the table and place the fruit in a pretty bowl.
I have a large chalkboard in my kitchen nook and had my daughter write in a pretty font....Love is Sweet.
Super simple but pretty!
