inside the box!

was right!  Inside the box was our first wedding present!!!
To be exact, it was our first wedding present from our registry to come to our doorstep!  We have also been blessed with friends and family who have given us thoughtful gifts during our engagement that are wonderful and personal and appreciated and this was our first "for the home" "off the registry gift".  So fun!  

I waited excitedly until getting word back from Adrian via IM that I could open it!!!
Above is what I saw inside!  Oh my!  Two presents!  
I put them on my (unmade) bed.  (A little bit of real life here, people)

Shiny silver paper and tulle bows!  I feel like a bride-to-be!  So fun!  

I didn't know if I should look at the papers included or open the gifts.  Would there be a card?  How would I know who it was from?  I've never done this before!  I didn't want to see what was inside by looking on the packing slip and loose the fun of tearing open the paper to see what was peeking out so I chose to unwrap first.  The first box held this cupcake stand!!!

It is so "vintage" looking to me with it's shiny chrome and the holders for the cupcakes look like the crinkled foil of a cupcake liner!  AND it twirls!!!  

Next present and the sender in my next post.  I didn't feel like fighting with blogger to let me upload more than five pictures in a post.  For now though my break is over and I must get back to working on the little cards I'm making.  Wedding planning is in full swing around here . . . Kelly
