Custom-made barn wood table and table legs. In order to soften the barn wood, we made the lace draping so it would cascade down each side.
The barn wood top is actually a "hay" door from a barn which was torn-down in Putnam County, Indiana, and it was a perfect size to create a two-top table. One of our designers, Karen and her husband custom-made the table legs to make it into a table.
We found two matching vintage benches (one in Cincy, one in Indy). We repainted them, distressed them and recovered the fabrics in burlap. Made silk pillows in order to pull the fushia color onto each bench.
To accent the design, we wrapped sticks in the same fushia silk, lined each with burlap and same floral trim from the pillows.
To order to bring the wood presence up, we encased the cylinders with grapevines.
Created "evening of events" cards that duo-served as the guest escort card. Encased it with a papered doily which we spray-painted ivory. Tied the enclosure with the same silk fabric and frayed the edges to soften the look.
We made the tops with silk poly and we covered them with ivory lace. The backs consist of several layers of tulling and topped them off with a shimmery fabric which cascades to the floor. We accented them with fur, and added sheer ribbons down the back which were further accented with larger beads.
We wrapped the napkins with the same fur and accented them with pearls. We added a corresponding accent to the table number frame.
We added pearl accents in the design, and filled the glass vase with pearls as well. Softened the look further by bringing in the ivory ribbon, which we also dotted with pearls.
We spray painted the gift boxes in a soft ivory. We lined each with blue cardstock and attached bars of Hershey's Milk Chocolate. We encased the box tops with lace, sticks and pearls.

We carried the same design into this layered combination. We attached lace to the back cardstock, layered each section and then adorned it with the same stick, ribbon and pearls.
We made the sequin lined plate chargers. Brought in napkin rings accented in crystals and same for the name plates.
Made accents to wrap chair ties and accented with vintage broches.
Accent pillow made from poly silk and embellished with sequined cut accent.
Corresponding fabric encased vases with taupe ribbon and papered flower accents. Tall candles filled with large beads and capiz shells.
We made the guest names and attached to capiz shells. We wrapped each napkin with a strand of pearls and added pearl accents within the wrapped section.
We lined pearls inside glasses and nestled candles. Each sat on capiz shells and were further accented by blue ceramic tiles.
We ribboned a thin chair tie and accented it with a strand of long pearls.
We spray painted the box with the same blue. Added the pillowed accent inside. We lined the top of the box, as well as inside of the box with pearl tiles. We attached a strand of pearls to cascade along the outside.
We spray painted the gift boxes and lined each with shell tiles and ribboned with a taupe ribbon with papered flower.
