So, down to party planning. My approach to Wedding Reception II has two overarching themes.
The first: Do all those things we wanted to do at the wedding but couldn't pull together at the last minute. For instance, we will be having balloons at WR II. Red balloons. Round, not normal-balloon-shaped.
The second theme: Reuse the best of what we had at the wedding. My man's pennants, for instance. And all those lovely family photos. And the beautiful, hand-cut paper banners that my man's parents made for our sweet rehearsal dinner. I love birds and I love cut paper. Before these get tucked away forever in a scrapbook or a cedar chest, I want the world to have one last chance to enjoy them.
Granted, there are still quite a few big things that we need to figure out, like--say--the food. But I feel much better knowing that we have things nailed down in the decoration department.
With all this planning and plotting to do, we're in for a big weekend. I'll be back on Monday to bring you all up to date...
