Rustic Lace & Yellow Wedding Reception

Rustic Lace Wedding Reception | Marigold MomIn October, one of my dearest friends got married. Melissa and I used to work together; we also lived one block away from each other. At the time, my husband was working lots of nights and weekends, so Melissa and I spent almost all our time together. Then one day, she up and moved to Wyoming to help do a church plant. It was a wonderful reason to move, but it left a Melissa-sized hole in my heart.  

When she got engaged to James, she asked me to be a bridesmaid.  I gladly agreed, but once the date was set, we realized it was only two weeks after my due date for my second child. And the wedding was 17 hours away in Wyoming. Needless to say, I wasn’t able to stand with her on her celebrate her special day. She and her new husband, however, just happened to be passing through Los Angeles on their way home from their honeymoon. So I, along with her other local bridesmaids, decided to throw a reception here for those of us who couldn’t make it out to the wedding.

The reception was held a friend’s house; another friend catered dinner. Since Melissa and James weren’t able to have a cake at their wedding (they had cheesecakes and pies which is equally as wonderful), we served a cake, along with two other little desserts.  We also offered a hot cocoa bar in honor of Melissa’s love of cocoa and the gallons of hot cocoa we drank to combat the “3pm Sleepies” we’d get at work all those years ago.  

The program for the evening was laid back in order to give James and Melissa ample opportunity to visit with everyone. None of us knew James, so we also played a little “get to know James” game with a bunch of questions that put him on the spot as much as possible.  =) In the end we all decided that we like him and will allow him to remain married our Melissa.

Decorations were relatively simple (since I’d just popped out a baby)–we stuck with yellow (her wedding color), lace, and added a rustic feel with burlap and wood slabs.

Rentals were through a wonderful, local company, SVC Party in a Box.  They’re great for smaller events (up to 75 people) and have the best prices in town.  They just deliver a trailer full of supplies (chairs, tables, tablecloths, serving dishes, coffee urns, etc.) to your door.

      Thanks, Gennel! I’m glad you liked it. I was so happy with how it turned out. The flowers are called craspedia. You dry them (they’re dried in the photos) and they last for about a year.
