My sister and brother-in-law hosted a local wedding reception for their son and new daughter-in-law, last weekend. The wedding took place in Kentucky a few weeks ago, but since many of the family and friends who live locally were unable to attend, they planned this special dinner.
The colors of the evening were black/white/and aqua. Centerpieces were crystal bowls borrowed from family, filled with water, clear floating baubles, white floating candles and white flowers from farm gardens. I think it was an elegant, yet simple, inexpensive way to dress up the tablescapes.
I'm sharing a few pictures that my neice captured of the centerpieces.
White linens, black and white damask paper plates, napkins and cups made up the total tablescape.
Beautiful candles graced the placecard table.
The newly married, young couple were warm and gracious in welcoming those present.
The wedding ceremony was previously videotaped and shared with the guests.
The groom's younger sister and brother were a vital part of the evening. In fact, these photos are compliments of this lovely girl. Everyone was happy to be a part of the evening's activities and waited in line to congratulate the dear couple.
Last weekend we were enjoying this special event. This weekend we have no idea what the days will hold. The focus is on "Hurricane Irene" and what all her visit will hold for us, on the Eastern Coast of the United States.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
