Mr. and Mrs. Chalkboards accent the bridal table, hand lettered by the bride, as a darling finishing touch to this always important reception focal point.

Long, farmhouse tables have linear collections of glass, flowers and candles creating a narrow centerpiece of texture and light.

I love the handtied ribbons one each rim – from raffia to grosgrain to check to plaid.

The reception tables are a collection of layered designs that are a DIY dream.

The Mother of the Bride worked closely with Larah sewing burlap runners for every table, complete with a very intricate, tricky embroidery scallop stich accent.

Layered ontop is a nod to Liberty of London – with a paper placemat adding additional color.

I love this DIY – which could be done 1, 2, 3 for any party theme using oversize books of patterned, colorful scrapbook paper.

Ontop this we have set a collection of vintage and new glass bottles and jars used as vases and vessels for flickering votives.

Voila!

Cocktails n Details

Larah says these are her favorite of all the dozens of personal, handmade, art major extraordinaire details.

Woven patterned paper drink stirrers are surely the prettiest garnish a gal could add to her specialty cocktail.

Paired with handwritten chalkboard drink menus, the bars are a buzz with the bride and grooms’s personal style.

Tent Time

Tent?

What tent?

Do you see a tent?

Stellar Tents, working oh so closely with the green thumb Father of the Bride, has created the ultimate "invisible" tent.

Intricately designed with floor cut outs to include the bushes, trees and natural garden plantings inside, the construction is revolutionary.

The clear span roof completely dissapears, allowing a bright blue sky overhead.

Even the half walls, placed along the elavated floor’s edge, are invisible clear acrylic panels, designed to let the outdoors "in".

The family home has a welcoming, wandering garden fit for the Botanical Hall of Fame.

As guests move from the ceremony on the East Lawn, they will follow fieldstone paths through the property to the West Lawn, set with the tent for dinner and dancing.

Just as you see in French, English and European Gardens, fabulous follies and architectural elements create fantastic sitting areas and carved out spaces for stopping to sip, see and linger a bit longer.
