Sorry for not staying on top of the posts. Not only has this been a busy year for Details by Margaret but also the Tolbert Family. We are expecting Jackson Thomas Tolbert into our lives this November and couldn’t be more excited! With that, priorities have changed and it is time to focus more on family. I am not giving up on the wedding planning business. In fact, this year has been our best year yet! We are simply going to slow down in 2012 and only accept select referrals so I can spend more time with my new baby boy. We LOTS of weddings, parties, and ideas to share with you from this year. I promise to get caught up over the next couple of months and keep you in the loop when Jackson arrives. Thanks again for all of your support and helping us grow into who we are today as Details by Margaret! One past event I would love to share is our Reveal Party! Ryan and I wanted to share the special moment of finding out the gender of our baby with friends and family. The theme was “What’s it Gonna BEE?!?”
We had our ultrasound technician called our good friend Rebecca Schreher of Wedding Cakes by Rebecca. Rebecca was the first to person to find what we were having. For the party she made an AMAZING cake. When we cut in we found the color blue which meant BOY! We decorated things to go along with the Bee theme. Everything was yellow, black and bumble bee! My husband, Ryan, put his smoking skills to work and smoked wings and pulled pork. Friends and Family were all there. Each person was asked to pin on a pink ribbon if they thought it was a girl and blue ribbon for boy. We couldn’t believe the amazing turnout out we had. Those who couldn’t make it watched the big moment through a live video stream.
Gotta run and work on some blogging from past weddings!
