Our hosts for this month was Ashley and Darleen. These girls took it to the next level and transformed the dining room into what I believe would be a 1900's night club feel. The dining room already had the french-inspired feel from the large chandelier, beautiful wallpaper, and the grandness of the room. We were all taken back and loved eating beneath a sky of vintage umbrellas and parasols.
Darleen took vintage black and white umbrellas and hung them upside down from the ceiling. She used the 3m hooks to suspend the umbrellas and they left no marks on the ceiling. Great way to make a grand entrance! The umbrellas gave that Parisian feel and made the party intimate and whimsical. Feather centerpieces gave a little burlesque drama. Flower centerpieces of peonies and tulips brought a pop of color and this is where the eggplant purple was incorporate in the table setting.
I had to blow this one up, it truly was amazing decorations.
