Hey ladies!!! I'm almost done my event planning course and have been lucky enough to plan a few small events - A fairy winter wonderland b-day party (my first event! pics in earlier post), a 20th anniversary dinner for my sister & BIL, and i have a 70's glam b-day party in a couple weeks, and a grad party for my oldest niece coming up in June. I learn something new on every event, so this is great experience for me...although it's leaving me less time for school work..lol. it's okay, it'll get done too.
I can't believe it's been 20 years since my big sister's wedding!! The dinner was @ our new loft (which we're still decorating..can't wait till it's done). I rented a platinum table cloth, platinum rim plates, and white linen napkins (platinum & green & white are the colors for 20 year anniversary). To add color i added the green ribbon to the napkins and peacock feathers and also added feathers to a few votive holders. I served a similar menu to the one they had on their wedding day, which was ordered from a Portuguese restaurant...but i cooked the appetizers :) I ordered a beautiful wedding type cake with peacock feathers, but my friend who i hired to make it (she's a fabulous cake decorator) couldn't finish it cause her mom died the day before the event. How sad!!! I completely understood and everything turned out great without the cake. We had plenty of other sweets anyways. I kept the kids occupied with activity books and cartoons, while the adults watched our wedding video after dinner.
I'm happy with how everything turned out, even with such a small budget. Now i'm working on decorations for the 70's party....stay tuned
