Eat. Drink & Be Merry. A Dinner Party Club Event. Part II, The Details

The overall feel for "Eat.Drink&be Merry" was a midsummer's eve sort of look... lush summer greens, twinkling lights, cut glass and fresh garden edibles. Some of our decor choices and inspirations were gleaned from this site. We had originally planned on using pears as our place cards since Hannah’s parents had a pear tree… but a sneaky raccoon decided to foil our plans… so we purchased green apples. 

we used garden greenery (Rub barb, Hasta leaves, Mint, Lemon Grass, Ivy, Morning glory vines…) to adorn the tables
Our glassware and place settings were a combination of vintage, thrifted and our combined family collections
We stuck with a general theme of green and white, a light summer feel. Tissue paper rosettes, chandelier crystals, white twinkle lights, clear cut glass…

The event was a major success... and was the start of an exciting adventure for Hannah and myself, as we are now venturing into our own Event Design & Styling business. More events and photos to come, and stay tuned for more details on our budding company, Paper&Velvet!
