My cousin recently called me to help her plan her daughter's wedding. I am honored and I jumped at the chance.
She was was rather confused about the table's centerpieces. I quickly stepped in and offered my help.
We have a Curly Willow tree in our yard, so I cut branches. I gathered up some tall glass vases, some napkins, flowers, bird cages and hit the road. The theme is a bird theme with green, yellow and orange.
When I arrived at my cousin's house, she was so relieved. She had set up a table in her kitchen and wasn't pleased. She had purchased small birds in orange, green and yellow, so that was a plus.
I arrange the tall Curly Willow branches in the large clear glass vase, added some small flowers with a hint of yellow. I arranged about 5 birds on the branches and 1 nest with tiny eggs.
Similar to these photos....
Aren't the birds cute?
These are the tall vases I am using. My cousin is renting them.
The bird cage will hold the cards from the guests.
We are using orange and light green rose petals.
Here's the favor box I found. I think it will be perfect with the theme. I found it pretty reasonable at:
http://www.favorsandflowers.com/sweet-bird-house-favor-box.htmThe tables all will have a white tablecloth and colored fan folded napkins.
The chairs in the restaurant will all have sashes, tied in bows.
I will be setting up a candy station with the bride's colors.
I have many of the clear glass containers. It will be similar to this one below. Many of these photos came from:
Our table will be draped...also at elevated postitions.
We found small green baskets and yellow baskets at the Dollar Tree for the candy.
Here's more of the colors, we will use. Green, Orange and Yellow.
The restaurant is supplying the white satin table cover.
The table being used is the buffet station at the restaurant. It is a very long table, so half of it will be where the guests set their gifts and the other half will be the candy station. I am going to swag the front of the table with her colors and bows.
Here's another candy station.
Here's a picture of a sucker tree I am going to make....It will be in her colors.... It's just wooden dowels....
I am also printing out the candy buffet labels......
I will add green, yellow and orange ribbon to the candy bars
to set off the candy labels.
The wedding will be outdoors. Let's hope it doesn't rain.
It will be set up by the lake with a white arbor and 50 chairs on each side of the aisle. The reception will be inside of the restaurant.
She hired a DJ and they will put in a dance floor. Maybe I can clog on it.....ha ha.
The bride chose a Sweetheart table instead of an head table.
She felt like she wanted her Bride maids and wedding group to be able to sit with their mates.
The Sweetheart table will be draped in a green tablecloth and white draping as swags and bows. There will be a cascade flower arrangement in the front and candles.
You can tell, the bride loves green.
I want to add some lights to the tall bird branch centerpieces.
I found these LED Submersible Floralytes. They come in all colors.
The bride chose a yellow Wilton 4 tiered wedding cake with white scallops. I will get a picture of it.
Thanks again for visiting and I hope to have more photos.
The wedding isn't until the end of March.
I want to put a great big "Shout Out" to my wonderful husband who kindly surprised me with Crosby & Taylor's Pewter measuring cups.
I was totally surprised. I came home over the week-end and proceeded to bake pies and never noticed the new Pewter measuring cups....silly me! My husband asked, why aren't you using the new measuring cups....I said what? I don't have any new ones. He pointed to the counter....Wow! I didn't even see them. They are gorgeous......I am very lucky to have a wonderful husband who surprises me. He's a keeper! Thanks Honey!
Our friends bought me the measuring spoons at Christmas.
