Because it was super windy we had to move everything inside, even though we planned on a garden setting. This made it quite cozy, but you can’t change Mother Nature! Luckily, the home of the mother of the bride made it possible to fit in a guest book table, seven square tables and the food.
I set up the guest book table in the front room. It had branches with pictures of the couple and an accordion book I made for guests to insert best wishes for the bride.
We set the food on their normal kitchen table with the counter behind covered in flowers. On the other side of the bar we arranged the beverages, which included champagne punch, sparkling lemonade, and water with cucumber, berries and limes.
The dessert area was of course my favorite! We had petits fours, brownie madeleine bites, an assortment of cookies, cupcakes and candies.
I also kept decor to a minimum for the guest tables. I placed pansies in the center surrounded by lace coverede votive holders. I used plastic tablecloths from the dollar store underneath sheer fabric I bought at the flea market. From the corners of the sheer I hung crystals to weigh it down a bit and give it extra sparkle.
Now on to the next party… a 30th Mad Hatter Un-birthday party for Jessica!
