Scenes from my work

Photobucket
I don't typically share too much about my work here, but this space is just too cute not to show off! At Terrain, we have this wonderful historic mushroom hut that is available as an event space. For larger occasions such as weddings, we might use it as an unexpected spot for a dessert table. But what it's really perfect for is a small, private dinner for maybe 10 people. Wouldn't you love to have a little birthday dinner in here with some close friends and family? It's particularly lovely at night when it's lit by candlelight and the breeze is blowing in. Here are a few shots from a special dinner party I put together recently...

Our potting sink, but cleared out so we could fill the basin with ice and use it as a makeshift wine cooler...

Casual arrangements of sunflowers in white hobnail vases...

Mismatched side tables for holding wine glasses and pitchers of water...

And you can't not have an eye-catching arrangement of bold flowers - when I saw these alliums at the flower market I knew I had to have them...

I never realized your real job was planning events! I thought it was just a side business you did. How neat, and to do it for such an incredible company. I would DIE for that space for some of our client private dinners. Love the allium and the use of the sink as an ice chest.

This looks like a magazine, not an actual place! I love it!

Love the rustic feeling of this table arrangement. I am actually working on the design of my beach house's living room furniture and would love to find similar vintage side tables like the ones in this room. Thanks for sharing :)
PS: love the sunflowers, they are my favorite flower!and really brighten up any space!
