Mark's sister got married last night, and I had the wonderful privilege to help her get it all ready, and take some of the stress off her. They wanted to keep it very simple, with just close family and friends. We still had close to 100 people come to celebrate the joining of two wonderful families.
Aren't they cute? My kids absolutely love their new Uncle J.
Once they had a date set, Marie (the bride) asked me to organize the cake, and decorating. I was thrilled! Honestly if I could, I would be a wedding planner. Definitely one of those dream jobs.
The first order of business was the cake. I knew once we had the cake taken care of, the rest would fall into place. We knew we wanted their cousins wife, blogger at Elle's Belle's, to make the cake. We messaged back and forth over facebook to plan the whole thing. It turned out absolutely beautiful and yummy!
Once that was taken care of, I was able to think about decorations. The church was providing cream table cloths, and Marie's favorite color is pink, so they decided their colors would be Pink, Cream and Black.
We cut black and pink fabric into squares to lay on top of the tables, and then added some pink and black picture frames. I spent the morning of the wedding, creating tissue paper pom poms.
Aren't these girls cute?
They really liked the paper pom poms. Two of my princesses and their princess cousin.
