This summer was busy in so many ways, but one of the highlights was a personal one! Our eldest son, Andrew, was married. We are so happy to have Kristy join our family officiallly. When they were planning their wedding, they told me there was an area at the venue that could use a little fabric enhancement. The venue they chose was originally (early 20th century) a bank. What a lot of character in this well-preserved building! The area where the ceremony was held had a row of decorative mirrors. Kristy had sent me a pic of the bridesmaid’s dresses–soft gray and cream print. How fortunate was I when a sample of this silk/rayon burnout came across my desk!
At the suggestion of the coordinator, we added white tulle to beef up the silk. I showed Colleen the picture of the mirrored area. She suggested we drape it up and over the light fixture to add height. The day before the wedding I corralled my daughter, my son’s friend and my sister and brother-in-law. This is what we came up with–simple, but elegant for this lovely event. Sometimes it takes a village….
Of course, the silk is well-suited to blouses, dresses and skirts as well as wedding embellishments!
