Summer Wedding Designs

I've been busy working on my latest commission which was to design place name settings, table name plaques and a seating plan for a Summer Garden Wedding Reception. The Wedding finally took place last weekend so all my hard work was on display.

Here are a few examples of the place name settings I created, they are attached to the napkin with a brooch back which enabled guests to then wear the name tags during and after the wedding breakfast if they so wished.... and I am told by a guest that they did just that!!

The table name plaques (below) were designed using lilac pearlescent paper and decorated with silk paper orchids in a decoupage style with crystal accents. Each of the tables were named after National Parks in New Zealand.


The seating plan (below) was created on thick silver grey cardstock, each table list was printed onto the lilac pearlescent paper to match the table plaques above and a orchid garland in decoupage style was created across the top of the seating plan, again this was accented with little crystals which shone beautifully in the summer sunshine. A little vintage bride sat on top of the list for the top table.


The whole seating plan design was then framed in a silver wooden frame and mounted onto a handmade wooden display stand (picture below).
