My son and his sweet bride married December 18. I thought I was never going to survive this month. My parents came for Thanksgiving and thankfully stayed until after the wedding. They were the biggest help, ever!
So with a house full of people, including our daughter home for Christmas break, we marched through all the incredible details of pulling off a wedding. Since my husband and I were in charge of the rehearsal dinner I rolled up my sleeves and came up with the decorating plan. We rented this wonderful old historical house here in Lake Oswego called "The Heritage House".
I decorated in the wedding colors of gold and brown using brown burlap runners and gold tablecloths. I made centerpieces using mercury gold glass buckets filled with brown branches that light up by battery, gold holly sprays, tiny gold ornaments and a twig star in the center. Then I tied a sparkly gold bow on each handle. I have yet to find those pics of the details, sorry. Around each centerpiece I displayed vintage bride and groom cake toppers under various glass domes, and on various cake plates.
