southern comfort, surprise birthday

brittany's surprise birthday

this was going to be a big one
husband blake really outdid himself and envisioned this event perfectly!

this birthday was one for the books.
beautiful venue where we even got to play an interactive game of Clue, great pasadena weather and dear friends. A true celebratory event

to match the victorian-pretty-flowery feel of the home, we needed a lovely, romantic yet inexpensive and do-able concept for our table's centerpiece.
Flowers were a give-in [click for the creation process: here, here, here, and here ] candles a must, long tables, cream linens, worn wood fence posts and  b o t t l e s  !

thanks to amy, tracy and stu for the creation, bottle scrubbing and set up! what a team we made  :]
enjoy the process!


DIY centerpiece materials: wood fence post [found], bottles [syrup bottles from coffee shop], 6inch cream taper candles [michaels], place settings [coffee filter rosettes], name cards [antiqued tags]
flowers: all grown in ventura county; bouquets made with a variety of kale, heirloom garden roses, lisianthus, eucalyptus,  hydrangeas and other assorted flowers
guestbook: made by amy mitchell
the beautiful bissell house [ home of the Bissell family...think vacuum ]
