Where will they eat cake?
(Part of the Wedding of the Year series, TWOTY )
On the estate where we live, this is the room where the lemon trees spend the winter. That’s all the room is used for. After the trees move out I think it just sits vacant for the spring, summer and fall. Richard, the wedding planner, realized that for TWOTY the cake could be served in here. As soon as the trees moved out Richard swooped over and got things started.
A professional painter came in and spray painted the walls and ceiling white.
Then Richard went to work.
He would come and paint a bit each day, patiently trying to teach me.
Once painting was done he started draping the ceiling with tulle.
This is my favorite pot. Even though the pipe is in the middle of it.
A cement floor was laid. The professional painter came back and painted a ‘molding’ between the floor and walls. (I did the white flowers on the plant on the right)
Various candelabras and chandeliers were installed.
The ‘Dutch Flower Lady’ made a huge arrangement.
The night of the event, tables, glasses, coffee arrived. Flower petals were strewn on the floor.
And the cake was here. It was a pretty cake I just did not get a picture of it.
So the event had a beautiful room for cake service. The estate gains another room that can be rented out for events. And next fall when the lemon trees move back in they will inspiring pictures to look at all winter.
