Simply Lemony!

Hello and welcome to Tablescape Thursday, where our wonderful hostess, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch welcomes us and our tables!
With my oldest daughter, Tiffany getting married in a few weeks, I have had my mind on a zillion things, and I haven't done a table in a few weeks. This week, I didn't want another week to go by, so I did a very simple table"runner"scape. I have a thing for lemons and just bought a huge bag of lemons at Costco last night, so that was my inspiration. (I already have some ideas for embellishments for next week- bought 3 sets of cloth napkins today at the thrift store and one set will go wonderfully with the lemons).

Have a blessed week and leave a note to say hi!

Wedding Countdown

Well, the shower was 4 weeks ago, the Bachelorette Party was this past weekend- the countdown is on- my daughter, Tiffany is getting married 10-10-10! With the trendy date, we reserved everything early- seems like an eternity ago- so we are down to the wire to finish paying for everything and tying up the loose ends. She is marrying a wonderful guy who will give us an instant grandson! Yeah!

We will be having the wedding and reception outside in the courtyard of the South Florida Museum in Bradenton- it is a mini-destination for us- about an hour away! My daughter formerly worked for a caterer, so they will be doing the food and the bar.

Her colors are purple with blue accents. She has chosen a local florist and a photographer whose work she really liked. The DJ is the same one we used with our other daughter's wedding- he really got the party going!

The rehearsal dinner will be catered by the chef at my daughter's school where she just started her first teaching job.

We are having about 100 people.

The shower was held at Olive Garden- she received some really nice gifts and the Bachelorette Party was in Orlando. I was invited! I brought along my sister, Tammy. We had a good time shopping, eating, drinking (just one margarita!) and sunbathing.

I will be writing more about the wedding in the weeks to come.
