Ok so more of a statement - But I love how crafty you are! I wish I could be like that!

Aw, thanks.  I'm such a copycat, though!  I get all my inspirations from other girls here on PW!  Lucky for me, nobody coming to my wedding has seen any of it, so they don't know what a copycat I am!

LOL I'm a copycat too. I'm not creative at all! My mom would love me to paint like she does, but I just can't! So I copy too LOL

Hmm....my favorite ice cream....hard to say, but if I'm going to one of the ice cream shops where they have mix-ins and stuff, I like to get half chocolate, half cheesecake with cookie dough mixed in.  Or I love strawberry with big chunks of real strawberries.  Yum!  Darn it....now you've made me crave ice cream!  LOL

I am making it, but it's super simple....and small.  Then we're having other desserts on the dessert table, and I'm going to allow others to help with that.  haha

I am having a dry reception because most of my mom's side of the family has a drinking problem (especially my mom, she is like 7 months sober) & I just do not want to go down that road... So we were thinking that instead of cocktail hour our guest could have their pictures taken with out fabric backdrop & enjoy an old fashioned soda fountain with a snack? Is that acceptable? Like if you were my guest would you be ok with that? TIA!!

I think that's an awesome idea!  I would like that a lot more than actual cocktails, personally.  You have a good reason for not serving alcohol, so I wouldn't think a thing about it.


What are you going to serve at the soda fountain?  I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

I found my inspiration for the soda fountain in a PW ARTICLE as for a snack I am unsure, because my reception is all desserts... so maybe fruits? idk!

If you're having a dessert reception, I'd go with something non-sweet as a snack during your soda-fountain-hour.  I'll try to think of some ideas, but I think you should post a thread on the main board asking for suggestions.  If you're not comfortable with that, I can post one if you want.  Just let me know.

Thanks!  As a single mom I haven't had the luxury because I had bills to pay.  But....with my future status as a married woman (with a husband who pays the household bills), I'm hoping to be able to stay home and primarily do cakes and a little catering when I want to for a while.  It'll be nice not having the pressure to pay all the bills!
