Wedding Reception Tables. . .

Witnessing one of the most beautiful weddings
I've had the privilege to attend would have been totally enough
for this hopeless romantic. . .

but to be asked to design and create
the Wedding reception tables was an experience
that I shall long remember here On Crooked Creektt.

Each table began with a white tablecloth with black overlay.
The Brides choice of accent hue, 
wide fuchsia ribbon placed beneath a silver tray, 
gives the festive atmosphere to this joyous occasion!

Atop each silver tray rest a bird's nest,
handmade by "Mr. Ed" and I for this blissful occasion.
( For a complete Tutorial, see this post from Yvonne @ StoneGable here.)

Clear glass cylinders filled with twigs include the nature theme
that surrounds the location of the Wedding 
and the new home for this couple.

Designing the head table 
was also part of my duties for the Wedding Reception. . .
but the Aunts and Cousins all pitched in with the actual decorating 
sharing in the joy of this celebration!!! 

The bright fuchsia floral arrangement 
was designed by the Mother~of~the ~Bride.

A fuchsia printed napkin, place card and menu
at each member of the Wedding Party place setting.
Glass cylinders filled with fuchsia beads held a bridesmaids bouquet.

Having designed the swag for the cake table,
I had no idea of the impact it would create, until it was photographed.
The week before the Wedding,
I stitched the swag and attached the bows,
florals and the fuchsia bling cascades!

This photo of the Cake Table was taken by my friend, the Mother~of~the ~Bride.

Fuchsia ribbons tied in a single bow 
with silk white roses and beaded pearl and tulle
adored the toasting glasses, knife and cake server.

The Groom's cake,
with the mints and nuts complete this table!

Ladies, you know, I couldn't have done all of the required styling 
without the aid of On Crooked Creektt's Resident Decorator, "Mr. Ed"!!!
He looks so darned handsome all dressed up. . .
made my heart go "pitter~pat"!!!

Truly, a "fairy~tale" Wedding 
and a sensational experience for me On Crooked Creektt!
I shall ponder the events of this day throughout my life.

Until next time. . .

A Special 'Thank~You' to my friend and her daughter,
 for allowing "Mr. Ed" and I the honor and privilege
to be an intricate part of this planning and celebration in your lives.

The tables look wonderful. I know it was a lot of work but rewarding. Hope your lower level is OK.

How grand wedding venue! The table arrangement is just fabulous. I am in love with this wedding decoration. You really did great work! I wonder if there are any party venues in Los Angeles that also have interior like this one.
