Wedding Brunch

We are going to have a simple brunch for our guests the day after the wedding. We were surprised that with the exception of a few guests everyone responded yes to our brunch. It's going to be so nice to see people once more before they leave to go home. Especially since for most of our family and friends it's a destination wedding.

My fiance and I have a bunch of these yellow and blue seashell napkins. They inspired the decorations for the brunch and I was happy to discover we had enough for all of our guests. I washed and ironed all of the napkins. (looking back now the ironing seems a little crazy:) Then I rolled and tied each one with some inexpensive pretty ribbon I found at Michael's.

I created a crossword puzzle too for our guests with all sorts of questions about us. Things like where was the first place we went to dinner and what school did we attend together. Now I just need to print them :)

Thank you!! I will definitely share more details too!

To make the crossword puzzles I used this website-http://www.puzzle-maker.com/CW/

I used their site to enter in my answers and questions and it created a draft of the crossword puzzle. Instead of paying money to download the software I used the draft and created the final puzzle in excel :)
