This weekend was spent visiting family and celebrating our cousins 10 year anniversary. I was so excited that I got to be a part of it. I love making someones day even more special when it all comes together and the room looks beautiful.
My husband doesn't understand why I would put so much work into something like a party. For me it is all about the final results and seeing how happy it makes someone.
We wanted to make this a really fun and bright atmosphere to show it was a celebration. My favorite part was the hanging paper lanterns and this picture does not do them justice at all. There were about 70 of them all together and they looked amazing
For the centerpieces we used two different vases filled with gerber daisies and then surrounded the square vase with limes (which I love). For each picture frame there were two pictures of Ryan & Jackie and their 4 children from throughout the years, which I think adds a more personal touch.
Ahhh, the Candy Table it was the most popular spot in the entire hall for the kids. it was adorned with a ton of different candies and guarded by two wonderful girls to make sure that the kids didn't go to crazy. I made the cute Sweet Love banner out of card stock and ribbon.
Then of course there was the cupcake table. I thought that this turned out so good. I made the rectangular cupcake stand out of 1x4's and mdf. I painted the tops of each one with a fun bright color and then wrapped a ribbon around each to add a little something extra.
In total I think I iced about 300 cupcakes between the big and the small ones, but it was all worth it in the end to see it come together.
