The progress on the wedding is moving right along. We've had our ups and downs but for the most part I think we're making good headway. My mother and I have both purchased fabrics. I bought fabrics for the pennants that I am
going to make making. My mother, for the furniture that she's having upholstered. My fabrics are a mix of grays, yellows and lavenders. Some ticking stripes, others are solid. My mother found some chic striped fabrics as well as a beautiful lavender linen from Ballard Designs by Suzanne Kasler. Online the swatch looks quite saturated but in person it's actually a very subtle grayish lavender.
The plans are to have seating areas set throughout the wedding and the stripes are inspired by the furniture I saw at the Dior Couture showroom in Paris a few years back. For one seating arrangement, there will be a French Settee covered in the lavender linen (very similar to pictured below) and two Louis XVI style chairs covered in the gray stripes. we have a set of ice cream chairs and table. The cushions will get the black and white stripes. Accent pillows will be thrown about in the brighter yellow colors.
Lastly, the linens for the dining tables will be a mix of the white cottons tablecloths with the muted yellow ticking fabrics used as either a topper or placemats. I'm starting to get excited!
Thanks for reading. My best, Lauren
