Cody and Allison are getting married May 5th, so as the family of the groom, the rehearsal dinner is our responsibility.
It is going to be an outdoor wedding at a camp and we have a building there reserved for the rehearsal dinner and a good friend and wonderful cook (John) preparing the meal. Now all I have to do is figure out how to decorate.
Yesterday I spent the day shopping for decorations for the tables. Since it's an outdoor spring wedding I decided to go with spring colors. I had pink, orange, pale yellow and sage green in mind, but of course you go with what you can find. I was pleased actually. It was one of those days where everything went right. I found the EXACT number of flowers - all alike that I needed. I also found tablecloths on clearance and bought them, hoping to find more like them at the other Target. And I did! I probably have more tablecloths than I need, but that's OK. I even found M&Ms in spring colors. They are new this year - not the usual pastels that they have for Easter but bright orange, green, pink and yellow colors that are called Va Va Va Bloom! I still need to shop for table runners, napkins, etc. but I think that will be pretty easy to put together. Pictured are a few of the things I picked up yesterday. I posted them so Allison can see what I'm up to.
