Isn't it funny....

how you will be talking with someone about a particular thing...
and low and behold that particular thing pops up again in a totlly unrelated way.
This particular thing of which I speak is Sanpellgrino limonata.
My daughter #1 (I have 3) is getting married in June 2011 and wanted to have this particular beverage served at the reception. Why, because the bottle is pretty and the right color. The colors of the wedding will be blue and yellow. I had heard of Sanpellegrino, but never tasted or seen one..... A few weeks later my dear friend Hassie and I got together to go treasure hunting aka antique and thrift store shopping. Look what she gifted me with a beautiful blue hydrangea in of all things a Sanpellegrino limonata bottle! OMG, of course, I had to tell her all about daghter #1's plans for said beverage...

a few weeks later while shopping with daughter #1 and daughter #3 for daughter #3's wedding this August, eeeeeek, what did we happen upon sooo unexpectedly, a case of Sanpellegrino limonata. SQUEELS of delight ensued as we quickly purchased the case, eager to taste this stylish drink.
I must say Sanpellegrino limonata, to coin a phrase is a good thing. It also makes a great vase for a blue hydrangea!
Please tell me it's not wrong to pick a reception drink because the bottle is pretty.

I would never think there was anything wrong with picking a beverage for those reasons.

I do believe that we tend to attract some things in our lives just by thinking on them positively. Can't wait to see what else you conjure up for the wedding,

It is perfectly sensible to pick a reception drink because it is pretty. Of course, this Italian drink is fantastic. I could drink gallons of it. Sea Witch
