Wedding weekend brunch

John's and my brunch was just lovely, if I do say so myself. We had about twenty family members from across the country in attendance, piles of food, and some festive decor. The best part, though, was just having so much extended family in one place, especially since we've been missing our friends and family so much since moving down south.

I did, of course, throw in a few special details...

The white square plates are from Walmart ($4 each!), and the white cake stand is from Martha's collection at Macy's.

The descriptive signs were hand-stamped on paint chips.

We decided to buy plain white paper cups but use my collection of old china saucers for plates. I was a little worried because we had just enough plates for everyone to take one (with maybe one extra), but it worked out fine. The pitchers are also from Walmart.

I had grand plans to send everyone home with a sugar cookie packaged in a glassine bag sealed with a handmade sticker. The bags didn't exactly work out, so I ended up just putting the cookies out on the table, but I thought I'd share my hard work on the stickers with y'all, anyway. I designed them in Publisher, printed them, and then ran them through my Xyron.

Recipes coming up next!
