Father and daughter dance. I've decided to do something different for me and my dad. We danced cha-cha! The song that we played was Save The Last Dance For Me by Michael Buble. LOL! We only practiced on Friday morning and I've completely forgotten the steps so a few minutes before we danced, I wrote the order of the routine and brought that little piece of paper with me! LOL! Who cares? I'm the Bride! And it's me and my dad dancing! =)

Inspiration: Fall/rustic cupcake stand.
Reality: DIY cupcake stand by my awesome husband. We had a hard time looking for just the right fall/rustic cupcake stand that will not look have a triangle or Christmas tree shape.
So we've decided to make our own and this is the design we came up with. I love it! I didn't have to worry about getting all the cupcakes on differnt stands.
- cupcake stand is 42 in. round. We put it on a 48 in round table.
- has 3 tiers
- tallest tier/platform is 12 inches high
- garland and lights (orange and purple) around the whole stand and around the pillars
- fits about 120 cupcakes including the spaces on the three wood slices
- the stand is covered with fabric
- the pillars are covered with burlap fabric and fall garland
