The bride and her maids.
The head table fully decorated. Her bridesmaid's wore yellow dresses as you can see above and the bride asked that the reception be full of color - dark pink, orange, lime green and yellow. The backdrop was a wall of lights covered with yellow organza draped with dark pink satin. The table was draped in yellow organza and lined with buckets of flowers, white candles, and lots of shells.
The theme of the reception was the "Beach" since they were married on a beach. So I used a lot of sea shells, starfish & sand dollars and of course how can you do a beach theme without sand.
I saw these cute boxes filled with sand and candles on an online site but they were 1) extremely pricey and 2) the wrong size for a round table. So I made a quick trip to Home Depot and with the help of Dad, we built my version of the sand box.
....very,very happy with the way these turned out - tabletop sand boxes filled with sand, candles and shells! Can't wait to use them again.
I wanted to do a bucket of flowers but couldn't find silver metal buckets that I liked. I did however find red ones, unfortunately red wasn't one of the wedding colors. So I had to spray paint them. Love the Hammered Metal paint from Rust-Oleum.
.....and this is what they turned out like.

The wedding cake, isn't it adorable!
Thanks for allowing me to decorate your reception!
Hope you have a wonderful life together.
