Beautiful Ladies Luncheon

When the talented Katie Henry submitted this party she threw for her mother’s birthday, I knew I had to share it ASAP! I was immediately taken by the calming neutral color scheme… then blown away by the details.
Katie created the perfect blend of ‘natural’ and ‘elegant’ using beautiful fabric and flowers mixed with burlap, greenery, and grapevine.  The neutral colors dotted with pops of coral feel calming and relaxed.  I love the centerpiece of candle sticks topped with carnation pomanders, and a single manzanita tree with flowers wired on to the branches.  Katie designed all the tags, place cards, and menus, and found the totes (favors) at Hobby Lobby.

One of the most unique elements in this party is the grapevine ‘banner’ with moss accents, and hand crafted fabric flowers attached.  This was set against a burlap backdrop with words that describe the guest of honor, also tied on.

The dessert table is another great focal point with the moss covered monogram and the cutest cupcakes/toppers I’ve ever seen.  Burlap wrappers with grapevine ‘ribbon’ is genius!  The only thing better is topping them with the mossy tags.
