What do you think of this color scheme/decor for my wedding reception?

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Hi!

We have been lucky enough that my future FIL is letting us use this great old pavilion he restored. It has wood beams, is huge and is all french doors that can all open so rain or shine we have an event space! The pavilion is next to a natural pond and gardens.

Our colors are baby pink, cranberry red and tones of pink that fall between.

We want a formal wedding reception here that also helps bring out the natural beauty of the place. So far we are going to have long tables (about 20ft long) in rows. My future MIL already has white table skirts for these but we were thinking Mauve table cloth to have custom made.
This is the fabric: http://www.customlinen.com/Step2_Linens.cfm?cut=Tablecloth&id=1
And as a ‘table runner’ just doing 8′ wide strips of mirror running the whole length of our tables. On these we will have lots of candles and short flower arrangements.

We know we want to put a lot of emphasis on candlelight. The pavilion has 6 large chandelierss with adjustable light, but we want most of theambientt light to come from candles. We were thinking LED candles on the wooden rafters, but not sure. Every major post around thepavilion has a wall scone candle holder already and we have numerous candle lanterns to light the path ways.

How does all this sound?

      i'm looking for ideas for a mythical / fantasy 21st birthday theme….?

      Sunday, February 6th, 2011

      i’ve pretty much got the decor covered. lots of fairy lights and soft draped fabric. foresty green & deep purple colours with some gold. lots of candles and leafy looking stuff. and loads of fairy-type flowers. maybe even a fire somewhere. kind of enchanted woodland forest meets secret garden meets fantasy movies / novels.

      everyone’s going to be dressing up as mythical / fantasy / enchanted forest creatures.

      i’m just looking for ideas for the menu, including appetisers / starters, a main meal that’s easy enough to eat either standing or sitting down, dessert, and awesome drinks (both alcoholic & non).

      nothing too childish or kids party-like.

      also looking for some ideas for party favours.

      any ideas / recipes would be very much appreciated!
      thanks so much! 😀

        How should I decorate my dorm with an $850 budget?

        Monday, January 17th, 2011

        The dorm building used to be a hotel so I have my own bathroom and kitchen to decorate too. The dorm allows pets so I brought my cocker spaniel so I would like a cute way to incorporate her bed and crate. I can replace any of the furniture with my own so I bought a glass, L shaped desk so I can have my computer on one side and I have room to write on the other. My school allows candles and I love candles. I usually choose scents based on the season so now I’m looking for cinnamon, apple, pumpkin, vanilla, etc.

        I kinda want my room to feel like a garden but I don’t want all the bright random colors that most decor aimed at dorm dwellers feature.

        I can paint my dorm as long as the paint is low or no VOCs.

        We have medium colored laminate wood floors and I want espresso furniture.

            Wedding favor ideas?

            Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

            I am getting married in the fall and want to do something unique as wedding favors and decor. Something other than the cookie cutters or candles.
            Themes I’m looking at are a wine theme or garden theme (for fall). I would like to cut costs in this dept, so something I could make myself would be great. Any ideas?

            Mother's Day Gift Ideas (read below)?

            Thursday, November 11th, 2010

            Mother’s day is not till next month, but time flies by so quickly, and I would really want to get an early start because my mother is extremely hard to shop for. I would like to give something PRACTICAL to her….the keyword is practical….something she can use.

            Please exclude the following: candles, perfume, lotion, blankets, mattresses, poems, songs, photos, collages, spa day or going out, shoes, clothes, jewelry, hair stuff, garden decor, window stuff, anything that has to do with the house or decorations, blenders, kitchen stuff, entertainment (cds and dvds), food, purses, watches, gift certificates or gift cards, money, electronics, blowdryer, sunglasses, gift baskets, keychains, anything to do with car kits because she does not have a car and I can’t afford to buy her one and plus she does not know how to drive and no I do not want to buy a lesson to learn how to drive, picture frames, sewing kits, baskts, anything home-made, etc.

            Told you it was hard!
