There was garden wandering, drinks in mason jars, a dozen bouquets cut from my flower circle, my beloved barrel, burlap table runners, glittered butterflies made by Corynn, postcard favors, vintage blue canning jars (borrowed from my mother-in-law) for vases, white cloth napkins, my usual blue tablecloths and plenty of good conversation. Thanks to being done a few minutes earlier than the guests arrived, there was even last-minute little food flags.
My only lament (I remembered just as they were driving back down the road) was not showing them my hall of books- librarians, you'd think, would like to see that.
