And it was fabulous!!! My FMIL hosted one big one for FH’s family, my family and friends. She did such an amazing job with decorating and the extra fun things. I love shoes and FH and I love wine so she went with those two themes. The centerpieces for the tables each had a shoe (one of mine that matched the color scheme) that was stuffed with some decorative tulle which covered florists foam which held a stick in it that stood up and had a picture of FH and I on each side of it! Also with the shoe was an empty bottle of wine (that we drank) with flowers and peacock feathers that match my flowers! It was so great! I walked in and there were my shoes everywhere! I loved it! Then before we ate, my FMIL put on a wine tasting! She was so nervous because she knows nothing about wine tasting but she read the book Wine for Dummies and FH told her what wines to use and they all had significance to us. It was so fun! Then we ate and then I opened presents and there were SO many, it was a lot of work opening them all! But so fun. Oh, almost forgot, another neat thing my FMIL did was have a professional photographer there to take pictures and then if people wanted special pictures taken they could. So my mom got a picture with me and her mom and sister. I got one with all the grandma’s and my friends, etc. It was very nice! I don’t have any pictures to share because I didn’t take any with my camera! It was a very exciting day!
