Bradbourne House Part 2
The Summer Open Evening at Bradbourne House was a big success! It was a lovely summer's evening and the house and grounds looked great in the sunshine.
After setting up in the main ballroom, the B2B's (Brides to be) began to arrive. They were greeted by a toast master and a glass of bucks fizz-how nice and the smell from the BBQ outside was drawing them all in.
I had decided to go for a pretty summer theme on my stand. Firstly because it was perfect for a summers evening and also I love the look and it summerises my style and love for femine flowers.
I made an array of samples from a tall fluted vase of deplhinuim and hydrangea, to a pretty birdcage in pink and peach.
Sharon, the Venues lovely Wedding coordintor had asked me to dress one of the breakfast tables as it would be on the big day, as it helps to give the "finished look to the Brides" I chose to go with an amethyst colour as it is going to be a big trend for next years bookings. The linen provided by Amicio Linen http://www.amicio.co.uk/ They specialise in luxury linen with elegant brocade/damask textures.
I wanted to show off this luxury look and went full out with an elegant crystal studded candelabra! Against the vivid blue it looked excellent!
I also added small votives of flowers as favours and finished off the luxury napkins with even more luxury ribbon! WOW
I had also set up some flowers in the Green drawing room where the smaller ceremonies take place. In here I went for a subtle pale pink, ivory and green scheme to set off the room. I think that it so important to compliment the surrounding decor- si bear this in mind B2B's when looking at your venues!
I created a centrepiece for the fireplace with pretty Hurricane vases filled with moss and hydrangea. The complimentry chair covers showed off the best colours that work in that room pink, green, ivory and chocolate brown.
Thank you to all the lovely B2B's who chatted to me on the night- I am looking forward to catching up with you all soon.
I am now planning my next Exhibition on October 17th at Sundridge Park, Bromley... Hope to see you there.
