A few weeks ago I shared a quick message on Instagram that read something like "BIG meeting about styling a vow renewal this afternoon. Taking my girls with me. Pray it goes well!". Off we went, the girls and I, to meet a friend about styling her big night. Long story short, I got the job! I should really back up and say that another friend from our home church recommended me for this job, just out of the blue. Wasn't that so very generous and kind of her? I sure thought so.
Over the course of the last couple of weeks I've been working away, making lists, sewing bunting, pulling props, and painting a very large photo backdrop.
This is how it all came together! The renewal was last weekend and it was such a treat for me to get to decorate the Garden Room in Fayetteville for the night. I mean, it couldn't have been more fun! I had a blast and the gal renewing her vows was pleased with everything as well. Win-win!
For the tables I did some layering, starting with a vintage fabric runner (all the tables had different fabrics), shutters, wood rounds, and vases/votives. The guys working at the Garden Room helped tape cardboard to the back of the shutters so that the guests wouldn't end up with a vase of flowers in their lap!
The flowers were from Dripping Springs Farm in Huntsville and were absolutely gorgeous. You can even purchase flowers by the bucket, which is what Mandy did! I would highly recommend them! They are also found at the Fayetteville Farmer's Market.
This was the photo backdrop I painted and it was so much fun to do! Like I sorta have plans to paint another one, just for fun... :)
The empty crates here were ready to hold popcorn for a mini popcorn bar.
I also decorated with some fresh basil, sage, mint, and lemongrass from my house.
It smelled lovely!
This opportunity was one that just showed up, in the middle of an ordinary day.
I'm so glad it did!
This was so much fun and such an honor to do.
Thanks for taking a peek and cheering me on!
