I had the privilege to help plan the tablescape for a wedding reception, and enjoyed it tremendously.
The guests “checked in” by referring to the seating chart that indicated at which table they were seated:
[See the feather quilting design?! Can you guess who is the mastermind of the design?! ;)]
[Silver chargers topped with menu cards with a “Who’s Who” section on the members of the wedding party greeted the guests when they entered the room.]
Instead of placecards, names of guests were done by calligraphy (by yours truly) on the menu cards for a different touch:
My favorite part of the entire preparation was being able to do all the floral arrangements for the occasion. I don’t have a green thumb by any stretch of the imagination, but I sure love to do fresh floral arrangements!
The following are flowers at the head table. You notice my Belleek Parian China children are showing off themselves:
Yours truly interpreted the embroidery on the bride’s dress for the baker to personalize the cake in a special way:
Cones of petal confetti used to welcome the newlyweds also graced the table to create a sense of continuity:
It was a lovely occasion, and a grand time was enjoyed by all.
Thank you for stopping by – I hope you have a lovely day!
