from the mail bag, pt. 2

We got a lot of fun goodies in the mail these past couple of weeks.

The lanterns we’ll be using for centerpieces arrived. They are even better in person than the picture. I am so excited about them. I think they will be so romantic after it starts getting dark. We’ll be adding some silk flower accents once my mom gets into town.

We also got the lanterns that will be hanging in the trees on the mansion grounds.

They have a great leafy vine accent on the glass panels. I think they will be great up in the big magnolias.

We also got in the pants for Andy’s suit (which were apparently back ordered). So he now has his full suit – just need to get him a French cuff shirt and some shoes (if he can ever find some he likes).

Those are all the fun things – we got a couple not so fun things in the mail. Like my cake plate smashed into teensy little pieces. That was a little sad. I had ordered a beautiful Fenton Spanish Lace cake plate, but it didn’t make it in one piece. Luckily I got (most) of my money refunded, so I’m on the hunt for another one. Hopefully we’ll have better luck with that one.

We also got the table linens I bought. Except I received in the mail ones that look nothing like the ones I thought I ordered. The seller used a picture that looked nothing like what she was selling & didn’t bother to tell anyone that in the item’s description. So when I thought I was buying scalloped edged, seamless tablecloths, I actually got non-scalloped & seamed cloths. I was pretty angry about that. I have tried working with the seller, but she seems to be completely ignoring me so I’ve filed a complaint with Ebay asking for a full refund. We’ll see what happens. I’m also still on the look for those, too.

Fortunately these small wedding misfortunes happened with plenty of time to get them fixed. Thank goodness for little favors.
