Whitney and Don celebrated their rehearsal with a dinner at the Desmond Hotel. They chose a pirate theme of purple and gold. The reason was simple - they attended the same college where their colors were purple and gold and the mascot was a pirate! Whitney's favors were treasure chests of chocolate. I filled the large chests with alstromeria and carnations, gold beads, and gold pirate coins. Each chest featured a different pirate element. Looks like I forgot to photograph the spyglass! I had as much fun shopping for this party as I did designing the arrangements. What a great idea Whitney!
