Y’all, thank you for all your kind words this week about the New City Arts Secret Dinner. I feel really blessed and encouraged by your comments. I wish you all could have been there, enjoying a glass of wine with us.
Today I’d love to share a little more about our tablescape, specifically the florals and vases. Since we were working with a small budget, I knew I needed to get creative about how to display flowers in a beautiful, economical way. The vision was to create an ombre-inspired table with colors fading from light yellow to coral to a fiery orange. Jackie Collmus was able to match our vision with garden roses, snap dragons, lilies, tulips, and ranunculuses. For the vases, we gathered over 130 containers – squared bottles, mason jars, rounded vases, even white wine bottles. At first, I was really over the mason jar trend, but they were so easy to come by (we had tons left over from our own wedding) that I knew I had to figure out a way to reinvent them. That’s when I decided to paint each glass vessel, transforming them into something new. What do you think?
Stay tuned for the easy DIY.
