My daughter's wedding is in 18 days and we are busy with details. As I'm looking for my wedding dress, my body is sulking over the extra upholstery I promised to lose and didn't. I just kept rescheduling.
On Saturday, my mom hosted a Bridal Tea for Briana in Los Alamitos, California. The guests consisted of Brian's family, our close family and friends, and friends that had grown up with Briana. It was a wonderful celebration and my mom did a terrific job putting it together!
Being unfamiliar with my mom's camera, I was shooting pictures with fingers crossed. The above photo depicts the Cracker Basket fold that I nested the guest favors in. I refer to it as my abracadabra fold because the finished product has been turned inside out.
The tea parlor had changed ownership after the tea was booked: something that was not properly communicated to my mom. The pots of tea were delicious; however, the service and food were below par. Most of us understand that tea sandwiches need to be protected from air to keep the bread fresh. The sandwiches felt like they had been toasted when, in actuality, they had been left uncovered. Apparently, the new owners still need to read their tea primers.
