"And they all lived happliy ever after.... we hope...." Here is the Slide show from Saturday night. I sprinkled some comments among the photos but a couple of things that I want to add from for memory sake and I'll shut up and you'll never hear about them again.
We moved the furniture out of the living room for the occasion. I wanted the high-tech TV to vanish. Trying to "work" Don (Who got the day off of work) We all dropped subtle hints about the television not being part of the decor. He didn't bite. Finally he said--"We're not moving the TV-- it could get broken, but I have an idea." He uploaded slides of photos he took of the dinner guests throughout the evening and they got to see themselves as they ate dinner.
The teacup cakes --- get it--were pieces of my wedding china. My family kind of thought it was silly as I explained it, but then they all got involved with making them and they were the hit of the night.
There's no way I could have done it without my friend from work. She came dressed in creme and black. She bussed tables like a mad woman. We laughed. I told her to get a table's request for salad dressing without writing it down. We comes back and rattles it off. I telling her to get to pouring. "Wait I have to remember this???" "Lora, they do it at the Olive Garden...you have an accounting degree for God's sake.." We laughed all night.
After the guests left for the dance -- We dissassembled the living room and ate the leftovers. Great memories....
