English Garden Wedding

There is going to be an
ENGLISH GARDEN WEDDING
and not only am I invited
but I am so blessed
to also be the
WEDDING PLANNER!


so to look my best I have chosen this great vintage hat for myself,
at Stella Designs, you see
this is my client's daughter's wedding, and has I had the privilege
to decorate their house and the grounds...


They also asked me to plan the wedding.
In fact the color scheme is similar to their living room below that I designed...


Think 1920's Art Deco, English Garden, a touch of French, meets young Great Gatsby's soiree in Newport, Rhode Island. I just love the William Morris English wallpaper with the curvy Swedish clock and custom made furniture...


My Party dress is picked, my shoes selected. Can you picture me around my house practicing
walking in these?



       I'll take plenty of pictures and post them.
Thanks...
Karen
