We Start Today: Reception Details

I shared our ceremony details in an earlier post and now it’s time to take a look at our reception details! Cocktail hour was coming to a close and our guests were ready to head into the theater. But before they went in they had to grab their “ticket” escort cards.

Our escort cards were placed on my DIY zig zag holders. They surrounded a “Will Call” sign telling guests to pick up their ticket to find their table.

After our guests picked up their ticket they headed into the theater. When they looked to the left they saw our custom wine favors on display.

We had two different kinds of centerpieces. Some tables had three tall vases with white tulips, orange gerbera daisies and green “buttons.” I don’t know the technical name for the button ones…

When our guests found their table they saw our tic tac place cards. Each guests name was on their tic tac container.

Our kitties who were back in New York even had their own tic tac place cards which were displayed at our sweetheart table.
