A Prewedding Party

My step sister lives in San Francisco but most of our family is in New Jersey.  She got married over Labor Day weekend in California.  Since there were many friends and family that weren't be able to make the trip she had a party at our parents house in NJ in July.

I had told them that we weren't able to make the 9 hour trip up there for the weekend between religion, dance & soccer camps that were happening the week before & the week after her party. But we decided a few weeks before to surprise them and "crash" the party.  There were all so surprised & thrilled we were there...and we were too!

I'm the old one on the left...ha ha ha! My step sisters (twins in the middle) and my sister on the right are all 28.

They set up tables around the pool area.  Because the party was in July a tent was necessary but they added some sheer fabric to soften the look & block the fence behind.

Budget conscious antique mason jars were filled with wild flowers and tied with raffia.

More flowers were added to the buffet table...

My step mom did all the cooking for the party.  I had offered to help by making the buffet table tent cards, cupcake picks, and favor tags.

 I made simple blank favor tags that coordinated with the other paper products.  My step mom just added the names in a colored sharpie pen.

It was a great party!  And we are so happy that we were able to be there to help them celebrate!!

I'll be posting about my etsy shop soon...stay tuned!

  1. Everything looks great. The paper products you made really pulled everything together. You are absolutely right "Life is in the details"! Thank you again for suprising us and making our party complete. Love Maria and Dad
