Bow-tying and birch branches

So many list items got checked off yesterday, as Cindy, Jessica, and Kerry offered willing hands and loving hearts to help complete most of the last-minute details.

Vases - tall and short - were washed and polished. Creative Jessica filled the tall ones with green apples and birch branches, so all they'll need is to have water added once they get to the reception venue. The shorter ones are filled with smooth stones and floating candles (again, waiting for water to be added). Other vases are prepped and ready to hold the bridesmaids' bouquets.

Fortunately, the wedding programs arrived yesterday (we were told they might not arrive until Thursday or Friday - yikes!), so we got an assembly line going to put them together and tie them with ivory or chocolate ribbon. The programs are lovely.

And friend Elizabeth delivered her perfectly hand-printed placecards that we divvied up according to the seating chart. That should make the wedding planners' job of setting up the tables a little easier, we think. Elizabeth even did special cards for Bride and Groom. And she brought a coffee-cake for us to share as we finished our work. This MoB is in deep debt to her for all she's done.

It is amazing what a handful of women can accomplish in such a short amount of time. Even Baby Sarah kept us amused modeling ribbons and bows from the wedding gifts. A giant thank you to everyone!

Three more days!
