After 5 1/2 months I have finally found my way back to my blog...life can be stressful when you're helping your daughter plan a wedding. I say stressful...but it's fun too! I have been married 31 years and needless to say, weddings have taken on quite a different spin from "back in the day"! Remember when a reception was in the church fellowship hall and you had cake, nuts, handmade cream cheese mints, cheese straws(every southern bride has to have them!) and punch? Then we beefed it up by adding meatballs, fruit, and canapes to the menu... and now....OMG...it's unbelievable what is served at weddings today. We've planned a truly southern fare complete with shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, tomato pie tartlets, sweet tea in mason jars, and much, much more! It's all about the detail or theme...in my day as long as your bridesmaids' bouquets coordinated with their dress you were doing good! My house has turned into wedding central with each room holding boxes of treasures for this wonderful occasion. I've ordered from Ebay, Etsy, Oriental Trading, and floral supply houses, not to mention the engraving company for invitations (Reaves Engraving in Laurinburg, NC...they are wonderful!!! I ordered my invitations from them 31 years ago!) and soon I will be placing the last and final order for personalized koozies...according to my daughter
