Click through to see the delish spread, some gorgeous florals, tabletop inspiration, and a sneak peek into the finished space.I set the food up buffet style under the pergola so guests could help themselves. The mini chicken and waffle bits were my fave! I ended up making these tables the weekend before the party. I had a marble dining table recently delivered to the studio and I repurposed the wooden crate it shipped in to make two 52” square tabletops. Then I went to Home Depot and bought 5, 8’ long, 2x4s and made the bases. Finally I painted the entire thing in “Equestrian Green” by Behr and attached the bases to the tops. I found these body pillows at Target which were big enough to accommodate two people and used 8 of them for the low fancy picnic style seating. I had 12 guests so we fit 6 at each table and it worked out pretty perfect (except the part where I forgot to make myself a place setting!). A wild ethereal centerpiece of blushes and greens, made the whole tablescape. Believe it or not this was the first time I ever hired someone to do flowers for an event (including my wedding!) and I am so so happy I did. Pulling this party together in a week meant it was one last thing to do (especially since I was wallpapering the studio myself at 11:00 at night the night before) and Moon Canyon obviously did way better than I could ever have dreamed to do. It is amazing how flowers can transform a space.
I always like handmade party favors so I sent everyone home with a small wood cutting board which also served as the first layer of their place setting. I have had my eye on these marble plates for a while and used the party as an excuse to purchase them, and I finished off the setting with blush pink napkins, a black salad plate, gold flatware, and a swatch of my pink wallpaper as a place card.
