My daughters thought the china was the prettiest, "fanciest" thing they had ever seen, and BEGGED me to let them eat on it. So, I did what any self-proclaimed fun mother would do. We used paper towel rolls, glitter spray paint and fairy stickers to invite my sister and niece to a very fancy party.
We ate chicken nuggets, pizza, macaroni and cheese (and some veggies) on this:
The girls wore makeup and my sister and I wore Louboutins (obviously). We made toasts with sparkling lemonade under twinkling lights and kept our elbows off the table. And in the end, we broke an old-school "tradition" to create a new tradition of our own. Our first fancy party will certainly not be the last.
So thank you, nearly 11 years later, to everyone who purchased a piece of my beautiful wedding china. This will never be forgotten.
