Wedding brain is real. Well, in my case, reception brain. It’s all I can think about. I have been on the search for all of the right decorations and food to make sure my reception is a success. I will be catering our main courses in but I want to have an area full of all sorts of cheeses and a large table that is all sweets. I received my Personalized M&Ms so I thought it would be a good time to put together my sweets table to see what it will look like. I want to make sure it’s perfect.
I plan on using lots of burlap, browns and lots of pink for most of my decorations. I ordered pink, white and gold M&M’s which I think will work perfectly for both my sweets table and as party favors.
I love that I got to personalize my M&M’s! I ordered them to say “Mr & Mrs Segars” and for the others to have hearts. You have the option to put your picture on the actual M&M, which I thought was super cool but I couldn’t find a picture of us that I wanted. I love how the hearts and our names turned out. It gives the treats a more personal touch.
I put the M&M’s on my table for snacking and also bought small glass jars at Hobby Lobby for party favors.
I made the banner for less than $10 with supplies from Hobby Lobby. The burlap triangles were sold in packets of 4 for less than $4 each, then I found pink fabric in the clearance section for less than $1. I printed out letters on Word and traced them onto the fabric, cut them out and glued them to the burlap. The whole banner only took about 30 minutes. It was a fun, easy project and I love how it turned out.
I bought smores cookies at Tom Thumb that ended up being less than $5. It was a steal. It not only saved me time but I know it was almost just as cheap to buy them made rather than make them myself. For my reception, I plan on having at least 5 different types of cookies. I added a picture from our engagement photos and a “&” symbol that was used at my bridal shower.
I loved how the table turned out and loved even more that I didn’t have to spend tons of money on it being perfect. My favorite part was the personalize M&Ms.I know that I’ll have to buy more for my reception because my fiance and I keep eating them! We can’t get enough.
