The Jones Victorian Estate is going GREEN with style!
The Jones Victorian Estate is going GREEN with my Bride and Groom, Denise and Jeff, for March! What are we doing? It's amazing! Check this out!!!
The tables will be first draped with burlap overlay for texture. It's a great idea to add a rustic, natural feel and color to the base design of the tables, besides the price is incredible! (Not shown :( in this blog) Great Idea Denise!!
Next, we are adding tree stumps (Jeff found a textured log and cut them to match) with cute
little homemade Mushrooms and Snails! The Snail is so cute with its little antennae!! It was an Etsy.com find!
We saved wine bottles to use for the guest tables. (Recycling at its BEST) There will be three wine bottles per table (Green, Amber and Clear)with ivory tapered candles.
Denise has cute vintage bottles of different sizes and colors that we are adding just greens too! That's right, just greens. We have really lovely trees and plants at the Jones Victorian Estate so we are maximizing the look with them. We are using Silver Dollar Eucalyptus leaves, Pepper Tree mini branches, Mesquite leaves and more!
Clumps of natural Moss and acorns and seed pods of all sorts will be added along with five amber colored votive glass holders with candles to finish the look!
What are we doing for napkins? I thought you'd never ask....
We are using brown napkins tied with twine with a sprig of rosemary tucked inside.
Now that's an incredible look, blessing nature and it's beauty. BUT THERE IS MORE!!!
Denise designed her own invitations on wood veneer! That's right. Check it out! I have one of her invitations on the top picture leaning against the stump! She said the wood cuts easily with an exacto knife to fit the size you are working with. She found a printer and it's done! (I'm getting the name of that printer, for sure!!) The invitations are already out! What an amazing presentation, their way!
Find your own way, I'll help you! That's the fun of it!
Smiles and love,
