wedding party prep in Skara

I go on vacation but I'm still doing party prep...how'd that happen? ;) Well, I volunteered to help since I was traveling alone to attend the wedding party, so why not? I lettered their new mailbox per Teje's request, which took awhile but turned out very well thank goodness, and I arranged a fireplace display using old car mufflers Tobias wanted to display along with some candles. We'll see how that turns out when the candles are lighted before the party tomorrow. I also came up with a leaf idea for under some tealights on saucers that I will wait until tomorrow to do so they leaves will be fresh, plus helped Teje figure out how to hang the painted backdrop she's made for the wall. During the table setting & flower arranging I was helping by entertaining baby Sixten, leaving Teje to arrange what she wanted, which wasn't my usual way to help with a party, but it was helping nonetheless! ;)

Tomorrow Sixten will be baptized in Skara Domkyrka at noon, to which I am also invited so that will be fun, then the wedding party is at 5pm, so I'll be getting there early to help with the final party prep. I think I'll also be hitting the antique store to get those cuter canisters at 10am since she's open 10-2 tomorrow but not Sunday at all, but otherwise I'll be sleeping in again...hooray!

Until next time!
