Our Reception Details

I used this blog to communicate reception details, as well post about as real-time craft ideas for the event, on the cheeeap! Now that it's over, I'll let you know our secrets!

I'm in the process of overhauling this blog... so check back as I post our details and the how- tos here.

Read about our DIY bar here,
and our home made table scapes here,
and Candy buffet favors with wax lips.
which made wonderful photo booth pics.
Our catering included traditional Filipino dishes,
an we enjoyed cakes that sat atop home made cake stands.
We enjoyed Shawn serenading everyone.
Took a family photo,
then danced the night away.
(to Beat It!)
