Some of you who know me in real life know that I’m working on my 2nd ever major event. The first being my cousin’s anniversary party. I did the decor for the head table & a wishing well tree. From that experience, I’ve gained my current clients…a young couple who will marry at the end of April. I’m styling their reception. I’m nervous but so happy at the same time.
When I went with them to see this 1874 built Victorian Mansion, I was so impressed. The details in everything from the moldings, the chandeliers, the floors, the fireplaces…yes, plural, were all so beautiful. Here are pictures of the venue as well as pics from my phone. Indulge…
This is still my wallpaper on my cell phone. Continue reading for more…
Hey y’all…Sorry for the delay. My week started with a strange cold. I had flu-like symptoms minus coughing & sneezing and end up leaving my 8-5 and calling in the following morning, something I rarely do. On top of that, I’ve been very busy. A friend of the family has a daughter who is getting married and they are seeking my “designpertise” (AYE, I’ve never heard that phrase before so if you steal it, give credit, LOL). Now, I’ve never done any major event with the exception of my cousin’s anniversary party which I talked about here http://wp.me/p1b5jY-3f . For that I did the head table decor with rose balls & tons of rose petals & candles

For this wedding? I’m required to do the outside entry, outside courtyard/tent area, inside lobby, candy buffet (if u don’t know what that is see http://designindulgences.wordpress.com/2010/11/10/dessert-and-candy-buffets ….), 16 cabaret tables, the table linen, chair covers & sashes & centerpieces with real flowers all visually pleasing for 390 guests. *wipes sweat from forehead* I’m nervous as I’m a 1 woman show but I’m very excited. Also thankful. The client said she loved what I done with my parents rec room and the anniversary party and she’s confident I will execute her daughters wishes….and THAT I will do. The wedding is April 30th so for the next 5 or so months, that will be my “baby”.
