As it turned out, it was a good thing I was having second thoughts about copper leafing my way to a mercury glass pumpkin. My friend ended up borrowing said glass pumpkin for her wedding, which took place yesterday. She filled it, along with an identical one she already owned with trail mix. Add in some glass leaf plates for homemade mints and chocolates and it looked rather festive.
Having served as Personal Attendant, I'm more than a little exhausted today!

Having been unexpectedly upgraded at the hotel didn't hurt either.
Here's the invitations:

I haven't had a chance to start editing my photos, but here's a couple, including the green custom Converse All-Stars that the Bride rocked for a few of the photos:
