Wedding Reception {Part 1}

This past December, one of my sisters got married, so I wanted to share some pictures from the reception.  My mom did all of the decorating and made the food and it turned out wonderful!  I got to use my new camera to take pictures, which, after I figured out a good setting, was so much fun!  I am still in the process of figuring things out with it, but I am happy so far with the pictures!  Oh, and did you notice I have a new photostamp?  I was excited to see a post over at Sugar Bee Crafts of how to make one, that is so much simpler than the method I was currently using!
This is a picture of one of the centerpieces.  It is sitting on a mirror with some crystals.  The tables had white table cloths.  Under the mirror is a big square of blue covered by a sheer fabric with silver snowflakes printed on it.
This is one of the dividers in front of the line.  They are silver poles wrapped with lights and a big bow on top.    There were also a bunch of Christmas trees around that were wrapped in white lights that I don't have a good picture of. (Sorry)
Then on to the deliciousness!  My sister wanted cinnamon rolls, hot chocolate, and fudge for the refreshments and the table looked gorgeous.  Just looking at this picture makes me want some.  On a side note, do you read Sew Dang Cute Crafts?  She recently was on a quest to find the best cinnamon roll recipe and tried a whole bunch.  I also would like to find the best recipe, so it was fun to follow along.  I am excited to try the recipe that I thought looked the best and that she picked as a favorite.  My cinnamon rolls always seem to turn out too heavy or doughy or hard...you name it!
 Here is a picture of the plates of fudge.  Yes, plates.  There were 4 or 5 different kinds!  My favorite was one that was covered in caramels.  But, they were all delicious!  I suggested that my mom get plates and cups from the dollar store to make the trays (as I have seen on blogs and love!) and that's what she did.  They looked fabulous and I forgot to get a picture highlighting them...bummer!
Here's the hot chocolate loot.  The pink marshmallow's are peppermint flavored.  Isaac loved them.  He actually pushed a chair over to stand on so he could reach them. :)  Silly boy.  There was also lemon/lime water to drink.  The reception was beautiful and delish.  I also have pictures of the cake that I will share in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!
