Cotswolds Party

This was great fun to be involved in! The client had seen my ‘autumn jewels‘ tables at a World Inspired Tents open weekend & asked me to style a birthday party for 170 people using similar colours in a vintage/boho style.

I hand-dyed muslin table runners in a red wine shade & added centrepieces of painted lanterns with pillar candles, & hundreds of glass nightlight holders in various styles eg gold, pink, burgundy & silver mercury. I used coloured bottles, clear milk bottles & vintage bottles for the flowers, which were chosen & arranged by Foxgloves & Roses.

For the place settings, I made napkins from washed linen & tied them with hand-dyed silk ribbons in a range of jewel colours. Rag-paper place names were attached & a sprig placed under the ribbons. Each setting had a clear nightlight holder decorated with raffia, which brought the total number of candles used to over 450! The gorgeous coloured wine glasses & tumblers were hired from Keeping It Vintage, who also provided vintage cutlery & china.
