Uniquely you

Mr Ruby Slippers and I love movies - I'd go so far as to use the term "Movie geeks". Seriously, I first started fancying him after I saw what movies he had in his dvd collection. So when it came to our wedding, it was easy to decide what theme would be running through the day. Originally we were going to use movie titles as the table names, but we couldn't agree on anything clever or interesting enough, so then we decided, because of the Old Hollywood feel I wanted to bring to the day, to put an emphasis on the classics. I cleverly got Mr RS to think he'd thought of the idea of using our favourite classic stars as table names, so on each table there'll be a framed photo of them with their name on a clapper board next to the photo - because, heck, few people are going to be able to recognise what table they're at just by the photo! (And because we already bought the clapper boards so we'd better darn well use them!)

We are having eight tables, possibly nine, so we each got to pick four actors or actresses. Funnily enough, I picked the girls and Mr RS picked the guys! (With one spare in case of that ninth table). Here they are in one pic - a virtual bouquet to anyone who can namethem all! Go on, I dare you. ;-)

Aren't they just too cool? Man, I love those oldie guys (and gals).

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love the Oscars. They always choose the wrong winner (No Country for Old Men? Seriously, WTF?) but I can't help it, I love 'em anyway. I have oodles of Oscar statistics in my head. It's a great party trick. Anyway, our favours are going to be little chocolate Oscars that I'm making, painted gold - hopefully - with a little card saying "And The Oscar Goes To...MARY" which will double as the guest's placecard.

If only mine could be made by celebrity chef Wolfgang Petersen...

We don't want to go too overboard with the movie stuff, because then it could easily descend into themed kiddies birthday party territory, which is NOT what we're going for!
