So finally here are some pictures of the work we did to decorate the shed for my cousin’s wedding! Sadly my camera seems to be having some focusing issues at the moment (apparently this is common with the cannon 450D…not happy!) so I didn’t get as many decent shots as I would have liked, but still…
Where to start…we made lots of large cream tissue paper pom poms and hung them from the rafters along with white Japanese lanterns, (hanging these was an experience that involved climbing into a cage that was lifted up on the fork lift, slightly scary!)
For the table settings we made individual mini pom poms with name tags attached to each, we had so many lovely tulips to work with but kept the table arrangements simple to allow for bottles. We hung some white fabric behind the bridal table with a string of fairy lights and also some bunting down near the dance floor (I didn't get a shot of that). Amelia painted the direction signs and I think they were my favourite, oh and we had some other flower arrangements around the place.
I'm afraid my photographs don't quite give the full picture, but I have to say I had the best few days being out of an office and in the fresh air walking around in gumboots/wellington. I even rather enjoyed having to clean all the chairs!
