MMM and I are now under four months and counting! Our wedding day is September 1, 2012, and the days are melting away. There's still so much to do, and I hope I have enough time and energy to get it all done!
As you may (or may not) know - I have committed to doing the entire wedding in either thrifted items or homemade. Today's Sneaky little Peek was an easy call. Because the wedding will be small - likely under forty folks - I wanted to serve them on nice dishes. But finding a set to serve forty almost had me reverting to the notion of paper goods. That's OK, and many people make that choice, but I really didn't want to.
Then, one day in the thrift store, I hit on it! Luncheon plates! You recall these from fancy church teas and the like? I can't remember when I didn't like them. And they're all (usually) made of simple clear glass. I really don't give a whit whether they actually matchy-match, just so they more or less go, without undoing the rest of the wedding pretties. So luncheon plates it had to be. I am still in the middle of collecting them. And I recently found out that my mom can fill in from her church's collection if I come up short. Whew!
I thought I'd share a couple of the pretty designs I've managed to collect.
Aren't they pretty? It's a morning wedding, and we'll be serving breakfast afterwards. I just think each table setting, with these lovely luncheon sets, will be simple, fresh, and elegant.
