Well on October 26, 2013 we had a wedding. The reception was held at a rustic locale – a local winery. It was a brisk October day but the sun was out and that’s all we cared about. The wedding was outside, the colors were “merlot”, how appropriate, and the flowers were typical fall colors. The sunflower was the prominent flower. The brides maids carried a sunflower with berries wrapped in burlap.
We decided to have different “antique-y”vessels for the centerpieces. This was one of my favorites – a white toy pick up truck for the Sweetheart table. Notice the tin cans trailing from the rear and the “Just Married” sign on the hood.
This bouquet was on the gift table. The copper pail has been in the family for years – brought over from Sweden by my Grandmother. We also use a copper kettle and my mother’s tarnished silver tea set. Even the floral designers said it was one of their favorite weddings and fought over which container to use. I had many of the guests take them homes I would be sure to get them back later.
