    Well, I've been told THIS is where we go to tell of all our exciting plans! I have much to plan. We got engaged in DW this past August, very romantic trip. Now, we've set the date, and put down a deposit on a local historical home. Oct, 10, 2010...love it, 10/10/10!!:thumbsup2

    The historical home we've rented for the day. The big room with all the windows, is where the reception part will be. Very colonial looking on the inside!

    [​IMG] Love the porch, goes around the whole house. HUGE grounds for everyone to mill around. Beautiful back yard, with an old red shed, great photo op!

    Where we will have Cocktail Hour, very colonial looking, love it. It also has a door that goes out onto the wrap around porch. Guests can mill around the grounds..there are over 10 rocking chairs on the porch with small tables as well. Very nice
    [​IMG]

    The rest of the room, the table will be gone, as the caterer will bring their own. We're using the big table in this room, for the gift table in the reception room!

    The back entrance, for the caterer

    More of the grounds, very big, should be GORGEOUS in the fall.

    SO, you want a real SHOCKER?? The ENTIRE house, for the day, was just $1200.00!! Needless to say, we put down a deposit THE day we took the tour!! To us, it was a steal! This is their FIRST year opening it up for public rental. I have a feeling, once they get going, they'll raise the price, ALOT! We are just the 2nd couple to rent for next year. SO glad we have it in writing. ;)

    Those were EXACTLY our thoughts..less decorating to do. Really, just going to have some floral centerpieces on each table and a few hurrican glasses filled with fruit and some garland over the fireplace. Anything more and it will take away from the house.

    The stairs are very nice, can't go upstairs, but the owners said we can go on the stairs for pics!:thumbsup2

    Feel free to steal the cake, I did!! ;) I've planned alot, but in all honesty, it's to keep my mind off my son in Afghanastan. He left shortly after his wedding in June. Planning has been a wonderful distraction! We LOVE the date, true, you can't forget it!!
