For those of you unfamiliar with the beautiful letterpress design of Sarah Drake I urge you to check out her site. She designed my wedding invites. I of course chose the Park Lane Invite (see picture below).
When she asked me to design a tablescape around the Park Lane invite to showcase her new line of couture wedding papers including place cards I jumped at this amazing opportunity. I turned to my friend and amazing photographer James from Photography by Lisa + James to memorialize this tablescape.
I was going for a crisp modern green and white theme to compliment Sarah’s grass design. I wanted to use wheat grass but in a different way. The wheat grass acted as the place card holder.
I wanted each floral arrangement to match the slipcover I had made so I consulted with Karen from Huckleberry Karen Designs. I had to have the green and white parrot tulips and the ornamental kale. She did such a beautiful putting together these arrangements.
Stacey Shapiro did the calligraphy and I have to say it was by far the most beautiful calligraphy I have ever seen. Here are some more samples.
