I made the ribbon myself and took off the flowers- I think it matched the feel of the cake topper perfectly!

Our Signature Drinks

We have 3 holiday inspired drinks. 1st Red Velvet Cake 2nd Pumpkin Pie 3rd Apple Pie

And they taste DELISH!

Next to each drink I posted our personal signs that I have made up that will go in each frame next to the corresponding drink.

::sigh:: I made all the signs for the drinks and the photog was SO busy shooting us she did NOT get a photo of the sig drinks ::cries:: Everyone who had them said they were delish!

 

Our Framed Events

I am displaying 3 frames at the reception. 2 frames will have our birthdays and the last one will have our wedding date.

FI's birthday is February 2nd, so I listed all of the events that occured on February 2nd and celebrity birthdates. I also wrote down which events took place in 1978- the year he was born.

My birthday is November 6th, so I went ahead and followed the same format from above. For the year partI put 1984 since that was the year I was born.

We are getting married on November 5th, so I again followed the same format as above and this time for the year part I put 2011. I think it would be a great conversation piece for the wedding.

 

 Our Thumbprint Guestbook Tree

<---Printed

I made this myself, and I will be sending it to Staples to be printed on a 17" x 24" poster board.

My MOH made the origrami birds :)

I was having trouble meeting normal men so I decided to take the online dating approach and search for someone I thought would be perfect for me. I went on a site, saw Tom's profile and just knew that he was made for me. After 3 dates I moved in with him and we started talking about marriage shortly after- our proposal story is below!
