    @eocenia:  I don’t think it looks wonky at all! I also don’t think that any of your guests will be thinking about it as much as you are 😉

    ETA: my friend set the silverware on the table instead of in the napkin, and I actually thought it made the table look messier. I like the silverware tucked in!

    I think it looks lovely. And trust me, this is one of those details you’ll obsess over that nobody will even notice (like coordinating postage, etc etc). Don’t drive yourself crazy or waste time and money when it already looks great!

    I love the table decor and the napkin rings! The cutlery would look nice and neat tucked in…however since you’re looking for something fun to keep you occupied…you could do any type of flower, or an herb like rosemary, breadsticks, pixie sticks (do you have those in Canada?), maple syrup or honey in tubes, burlap flags with your monogram (guests can wave them when they want to see you kiss instead of tapping on glasses), or crochet little hearts or bows on sticks like your clutch and cake topper, (could you crochet on the flight over? Keep yourself occupied), lollipops, twizlers, twigs from trees would fit in with the rustic feel, a menu (if you’re having one), a thank you note to your guests, fun trivia questions, beeswax candles, feathers….

    @eocenia:  I’m not a fan of things that look like they are done for no reason. If the guests had to pick up their napkin and cutlery and carry it to a table, great. If they don’t, I would place the cutlery on the table where it belongs and place a piece of an herb like rosemary in the pocket if you do anything at all. It looks fine just the way it is.

    Pixie stixs are basically straws filled with colored sugar, you can probably guess why I loved them as a kid. I like the idea of spruce since it has special meaning for you. Though the idea of having a tradition for shooting a moose sounds funny to me, but nobody in my family hunts so I guess it’s just different (not in a bad way). I just googled the meaning of herbs and they all seem to be symbolic of something. I’d make sure to choose ones that aren’t poisonous though since they’ll be on the table 🙂 7 pointed square? I’ve had projects turn out like that, but it sounds like it helped!

    @flywheel78:  that’s really cute. 

    @eocenia:  🙂 I went to school in Buffalo so we would go over the border to Canada, the  drinking age was 19 (21 in NY) and an American dollar was worth a toonie. Of course back then crossing the border was no big deal, didn’t need a passport and most of the time they didn’t even ask for ID. I would guess moose meat would taste like venison (deer). It’s like in Australia kangaroo meat is common. Seems different here since we only see Kangaroos in zoos. I guess it’s whatever you’re used to.  

    Sounds like the Rosemary will be perfect, and as an added bonus smell nice. 🙂
