Our idea was solidified after we found these precious invitations from Minted.

The table in the dining room adjacent to the foyer made a place for guests to sign or write a note in the children's book Guess How Much I Love You. With a copy of the invitation on the inside cover this book gives a wonderful memory of a special day. Pictures of Lauren and Derek over the years were fun to peruse.
Simple, primary colored hearts were cut out and threaded together to make a banner in the living room.
I know it is "pre-food" but this is the only picture I took of the balloon centerpiece. Imagine a cake stand full of decadent, red velvet cupcakes "sprinkled" with red crystal sprinkles. I love the way the heart bunting turned out in the background. I even saved it to pull out for Valentine's decorations.
Popcorn from Heavenly Gourmet Popcorn "sprinkled" with White Cheddar, Dill Pickle and Jalapeno Ranch flavoring.
Pigs-in-a-blanket "sprinkled" with cheddar cheese.
Vanilla cupcakes with caramel frosting and sprinkles...of course.
Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream.
The lemon bars "sprinkled" with powdered sugar were disappearing. I have never had to refill a platter so many times!
Lemonade "sprinkled" with strawberries and ice water.
The glowing mom-to-be, Lauren and her beautiful mother, Susan.
How blessed is this baby girl to be joining such a wonderful group of women?
Lauren's mother-in-law, mother, Lauren and grandmother.
Thank you Lauren for letting us share such a special day with you!
