RECEPTION

I want FI and I to wear African traditional (yet modern) attire.

 My auntie is gifting us Kente cloth to wear so we will see what colors they are so we can coordinate accordingly :-)

We will change right before the cake cutting. We will be doing a re-entrance :-) I think this time we will really dance it up to get everyone hyped LOL

Cake topper

(purchased from Etsy)

The lady sent me this picture to show me how to it looks and if I want to make any changes before she sends it off to me.

The Cake :-)

I think to cut costs, we will make this two tiered and save the top for our one year anni and have the waiters cut the second tier for the family members. There will be two sheet cakes in the kitchen for them to cut for the rest of the guests (about 220)

. I like the simplicity of it because it won't detract from the cake topper which I love and want it to stand out!! :-)

This will go in front of the cake (if there is spacve I will put it in on the cake stand along with the cake) with rose petals and candles :-) Romantic theme!!

Cupcakes :-)

Since we will be having a cake display, I was thinking of maybe including cupcakes in the display. The caterers are giving us cookies, fruit and icecream. Do you think I need cupcakes?

Hmm. Will revisit this. I have until January anyway. I want to book our bakery by then..

Centerpieces :-)

These are for the guest tables. Will do a proper mock up later on in the summer.

I got these from amazing savings for 15.99!

I love this idea for the table numbers :-) I already purchased the jars and doilies :-)

Need to figure out how I will put the #s on them, stencil or precut? hmmm
