#FBF English Garden party

Here is a flashback to one of my favorite wedding setups at the historical Chicago Landmark, Germania Place.  Our designer Lauren and her team prepared and executed a refined English Garden themed reception in the ballroom of the Gilded Age edifice.

Picturesque centerpieces composing pink stock, white, mauve and blush roses, white hydrangea, buplerum, pink wax flower, Azalea leaves, Italian Ruscus and eucalyptus sat atop silver antique inspired pedestals.  Orbiting the centerpieces were silver antique inspired candlesticks and candle votives.  The arrangements allude to the regal 18th century landscaping style that reflected a focus towards natural beauty.

 

The place card table showcasing one of the grandiose arrangements was a perfect compliment to the stained glass portrait which was designed in Heidelberg, Germany, and first exhibited at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.
