Here's my plan, I love entertaining and if I gradually buy things that I would want for my future wedding but use then now and afterwards for other parties, they shouldn't count as money spent from my wedding budget. TECHNICALLY I could get by with out them in my life when throwing parties that aren't my wedding but I think they will make things prettier and I consider these parties trial runs.
So come spring I want to start my hunt for the following things, at yard sales and second hand/antique shops:
- Strings of outdoor lighting
- Jugs, pitchers and/or glass beverage dispenser
- Flatware, dinnerware & cups
- Mason Jars
- Vintage sheets
- Cake stands
- Serving platters and deep bowls
I'm also looking for a farmhouse style hutch for my kitchen but that isn't really wedding/party related. I just want it.
