Prospect Park Boathouse wedding 8/7/10 Brooklyn, NY

The card table was one of my favorite pieces from this collection. It's slightly modern, yet swampy using a combination of Manzanita branches, and cattails in a tin can. The favors were these cute little can's that have a plant in them for the guests to take home. We placed these can's in two beds of grass for a pop of lush green. *The tall center pieces were made with Manzanita branches, blue delphinium, burgundy scabiosa, eryngium, silver brunia and succulents. *The ponds took weeks and weeks of planing. I went shopping for the perfect container for a pond and it happened to be a POT! It was a fun challenge to figure out how to confidently seal these puppies to prevent leakage and to secure the foam needed for the flowers.  Inside the pond I used, Nelumbo pods, burgundy dahlia's, cattails, blue corn flowers, eryngium, scabiosa, and succulents. We added in some green moss and some underwater tea lights to give the ponds the final touch. *The balcony was SO much fun to design. It over looks the gorgeous Prospect Park pond where you find white swans, ducks, and turtles. More importantly, the bride and groom stood up here looking down at there ceremony site and guests before their vows were exchanged. We used greens that were bound together with a birds nests set in the middle. I chose burgundy dahlias and lavender to place into the little birds nests and you really could smell the sweet scents as you stood up there!
