Amanda & Justin Wallace... Sept, 2011 pt 3
The guest tables...
You've probably seen this aqua cloth before, but I still love it!
It's taffeta w/raised florals all over it!
Top if with a black candleabra and holy moley --
I have so many gorgeous silk flowers that I try to get my brides to save a little on their budget and use what I have... this centerpiece adds some elegance ontop of a black damask, flocked teal tablecloth... wrapped in lace!
Did you notice the fun feathers?!
The third look is a harlequin runner.
I love the patterns in this reception!
You have to be careful with them so you don't create a circus...
I think we did a fabulous job bringing in all the pattern
and still staying within her color scheme and overall theme.
We got to use these aqua birdhouses again,
pinned w/a zebra flower and a 'blinger' in the middle.
We sat it on a blingy cakestand...
and added the old cameras for Justin.
He's a photo buff!
The middle of the tables and the center of our
lights & chinese lanterns served center stage for drinks.
I love to set up a reception this way because it keeps people moving.
There's not as much of a 'traffic jam' by the food when you move the drinks somewhere else.
It doesn't hurt to hang several chandeliers
at various lengths to add some drama, either!
