Back to the Big Fake Wedding New England 2018 - As the bride didn’t want any typical centerpieces, I designed a centerpiece for a round table in a concrete container that I dry brushed with gold paint. Grapevine balls, moss, polished stones, succulents and painted gold leaves were tucked around flowering and foliage plants, such as orchids and anthuriums, that are typically found in a conservatory. Taking the table to an upscale (as opposed to a rustic) direction, I selected textured, clear glass plates rimmed with gold. A rose, resting on moss that lined a gold edged glass pyramid, brought color to each place setting. The perfect green linens provided by @xothegirls and unique printed designs of table number and menus from Jen Pepper @thechattypress finished the look.
My second table was a beautiful long farm table which begged for an elevated ‘jungle’ of orchids and greens. Phalenopsis and dendrobium orchids were tucked into a garland of greenery which extended down on to the table. Hops grown in my yard hung playfully. The table number was suspended from this in a floating gold edged frame. Additional plants and flowers in small glass vases were on the table.
Floral Sydenstricker plates were put on ivory china with a textured rim in a trellis pattern. At each setting, there were song lyrics or a title along with the author in floating glass frames and echeveria in a glass teardrop. Once again, thanks to Jen Pepper @thechattypress and @xothegirls for printed materials and linens.
The Big Fake Wedding was a great experience. All the vendors developed quite a camaraderie working in the crazy heat and then ridiculous downpour to pull this together. I would recommend any of them.
