One down and one to go. These are examples from the rehearsal dinner yesterday and I deliver the wedding flowers this afternoon.
The bride had requested that I do the flowers in wooden buckets, but I couldn't find any, so I used metal, and painted them copper to match my tall copper buffet centerpiece. I think it used to be an old milk can, but it has lost its top (which is great for me). There were eight tables and two buffet arrangements. You should see this place. It is on the top of a hill in the county southwest of Chapel Hill and Carrboro. The people who live on the property have owned it for thirty years, and their landscaping and gardening reflects a love for nature and plants. They volunteered to host the rehearsal dinner and wedding for the bride's mother. The lighting under the tent is tricky; I had to lighten it up quite a bit so you could see the flowers and that makes the grass (what there is of it) look almost yellow. Well, I don't know what happened to the second photo. It was here when I started writing and then it disappeared. I will add it next.
