Caroline & Rob - Fun at the Please Touch Museum

I love working with a family with a sense of fun and adventure and this family certainly fit the bill! I was fortunate to be able to work with two sisters on their very different weddings - two months apart. I couldn't have met two more lovely young woman. First up was Caroline and Rob's wedding at the Please Touch Museum. Caroline wanted to use U of P colors for her palette and create a fun theme her party. So for Caroline's bouquet, I used white peonies, white lisianthus, and ivory roses. Rob wore an ivory rose to match.

Caroline's MoH carried a bouquet of Fire n Ice roses mixed with ivory roses. I love the white petals with the red tips!   The rest of the bridal party carried the just the red roses. All of the groomsmen work red rose boutonnieres.

After a church ceremony, the guests arrived at the museum for cocktail hour in the carousel room. Caroline had a popcorn machine set up there so naturally we used a popcorn-like flower - hydrangea - in popcorn containers for the hi-top tables just for fun!

I filled a large glass container with boxes of Cracker Jack and topped it off with a variety of red, white, and blue flowers. Caroline had family wedding pictures set up on the table.

Guests then moved into the reception area with its very high ceiling. So we made tall arrangements of blue and white flowers for some of the tables.

And we also made two kinds of low arrangements for other tables. Caroline was very brave and did a fantastic job making the bowls out of tickets that I showed her for one type of arrangement. If you look just under the flowers, you'll see a row of tickets.

For the second type of arrangement, Caroline did a great job shopping for striped fabric. I wrapped vases in either the red or blue striped fabric.  For the parents' tables, Caroline gave me U of P pins to pin on the fabric.  We even made smaller versions for the sweetheart table.  Can you tell that Caroline is a big fan of hydrangea?

It was pure joy working with Caroline and I wish Rob and her happiness and love forever and ever. I'll certainly think of her next time I take my grandson to the museum.
