Old Beautiful Quilts... They are not just for warmth anymore!

Are you planning a wedding with a homegrown or vintage design theme? 
Have you given it any thought? 
If you are or have, I have a suggestion for you. 
In my mind, it conjures up rich texture, color with dimension, love that's real  and warmth of history all  mixed together into a beautiful package.
So, how would you use these precious love gifts?
Here are a few....

A table overlay!

A special linen for the sweets or cake table!

They may be used for those rumbustious flower girls and ring bearers!

                 I added a few snacks and toys to the quilt and these children were in heaven!

A welcome quilt that proudly displays the love for the day!

                                    Here, I mixed textures with the table linens and it was a big hit!

Quilts are a lovely way to add color and texture to the overall theme without a huge expense. 
They can be a special wall hanging behind the cake table or how about an overlay for the gift table or bridal table! 

Here, the guests signed quilt squares instead of a guest book! So, whether the quilts are for decoration or practical usage, they are a wonderful element to add to any wedding.

Let's have fun!

Beautiful Flowers in the Garden!

As the rain subsides, beautiful flowers are emerging everywhere on the Estate. 
It's magical and charming to witness such a hardy transformation so quickly.

 The succulents emerge and boast with rich color!

The potted Pigmy Palms come alive with color that were sleeping only days ago!

Come see the Wedding magic of the Jones Victorian Estate.
