The meeting was hosted by my planner pal Kaycee Parker of Parker Events who did a fab job of putting everything together. And I had the pleasure of meeting Floral and Event Designer, Kimberly Neff, owner of Lilies and Lemon Drops for the first time. Pictured below are some super cute creations that she put together for the event themed 'Old Fashion Picnic' which was held in Auburn at Sanders Mansion.
I love these first two centerpieces with multiple small glass and milk glass vases! I LOVE milk glass! It reminds me of grandmas house and who doesn't love grandmas house?! This is a look you can do by collecting 'cheap' vases from Goodwill and getting fun flowers from your local farmers market.
And I love how Kimberly used chalkboard squares as the base of each centerpiece. It draws the eye and gives it that 'old timey feel' that is fun to do during the summer. And ribbon! That is a girl after my own heart! Putting ribbon on anything makes me instantly happy!Helping Kimberly complete her look was Heather Driscoll who has a company specializing in paper design, Heateroriginal. She did fun hanging 'balls', cute faux flower buds in the vases and an adorable lemonade banner for the refreshments table.
I hope you like what you see and get inspired to put together a creation of your own using yellow, black and white this summer!
