Reception goodies

We have had a lull in our wedding planning, and have been using our free time exploring the Bay Area before the rain comes. Well, it's almost December and rainy season is upon us. So, you know what that means? I will be busy planning things for our wedding and sharing them with you here. Keep checking back, and I'll make sure to notify you via twitter and facebook as I post. We are quite excited to have all my big things crossed off our list: ceremony site, reception location, photographer, caterer, cake, music (fingers crossed on that one!), shoes and dress. That gives us 10 months to plan out all the fun details. Here are some that we've already begun.

First off: linens. Exciting right? I make you wait three weeks for a blog post only to show you photos of napkins. But these aren't just ANY napkins, folks. These are being sewn with love by my Mom (THANK YOU Mom!). We are sticking with classic white linens for our tables, but I wanted to "fun it up." I picked out red and white checked fabric, that you'll find scattered across picnic tables at lobster shacks.

I plan on folding them to house a menu, which happens to be what we are working on now. Get your bibs ready, people. ;)

Next up, place cards! I plan on starting these ASAP, since they will be hand cut. It's a good thing my fiance went to art school as well, because it will be a much faster job when there's two of us with XACTO knives in hand. Ignore the big crease, as this was a piece of scrap card stock that I wanted to test with. Oh, and I will also be perfecting my calligraphy no judging umkay? You can download a template here. I adjusted the size of my claws to be larger and used Illustrator to smooth out some of the lines for easier cutting.

Next up, centerpieces, I have lots of ideas and I can't wait to share them with you!

Check back later this week for the December desktop calendar download. And, in case you missed it on facebook today---my calendars are only $8 in honor of Cyber Monday. Get em' while they last. :)
