No dessert table now. Mainly because everyone will be arriving at the house at the same time! It dawned on me last night while making huge Martha Stewart Pom Poms and I starting thinking about the day's timeline. Stupid o'clock - Get up, showered, dressed, make up, hair. Children up. Dress miss in her dress, straighten her hair, fit the veil. Dress the boys. Make all beds, tidy house. 7:15 am - Leave home for the Church 8 am - Service begins and my little girl makes her First Communion 9:30 am - Arrive home along with everyone else 9:30 am - Party begins.
So where is the time for set up? Getting everything out of the fridge? Displaying things beautifully on the table? etc ? etc?
THERE IS NO TIME!
So I am just going to do what I can do and this is how it will go.
Adults: Two long tables filled with yummy goodies, tea cups, flowers and hanging pastel pom poms Children: Coffee tables (child height) covered in all of the above, under a tree in the garden with bright hanging pom poms.
I will have everyone meet in the front garden. Champagne with apricot or peach nectar. Strawberry milk for the children. This should buy me 15-20 mins to boss my sisters around to within an inch of their life to get everything laid out perfectly. Then I will invite everyone upstairs for the reveal!
