Wow! What a busy few months I have had!
I have been busy working through my course and keeping with my little boy who is now a toddler! He is like a little whirlwind.
So I will do a brief update on what I have been up to with my course in the last couple of months.
In this assignment I learned all about tablescapes and centrepieces. The do’s and don’ts as well as the why’s and wherefore’s.
1. Would you use a hybrid delphinium, which averages 17 to 24 inches tall, in the centrepieces? Why?
2. You have been asked to provide a floor show featuring a nationally known entertainer as part of the rehearsal dinner for another couple you are working with. Your client wants you to emphasize the flowers, using 26 inch tall vases with large arrangements on the 80 tables. What should you explain to your client?

I also had to design a unique centrepiece for a themed wedding with balloons being featured within the design. This is what I came up with..
What do you think? I loved the film up and think the centrepieces would be very eye-catching!
Last but certainly not least for assignment 8, I was tasked with researching local backdrop companies and choosing a backdrop and props that could be tied into a wedding theme of my choice. I went with the theme of a Pirate Wedding! Here is what I came up with.
As always, please do tell me what you think :)
Assignment 9 was a two part assignment, comprising of becoming familiar with a tablescape design website and also coming up with a solid design for the table and decorative elements, of the original ‘Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend’ wedding.
The website I used to come up with the tablescape designs below was a company called BBJ Linens.
Would you use any of those tablescape colour combinations or designs for your event? Please do let me know :)
Now I was back to thinking about the original wedding that I was designing around the theme of ‘Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend’. I had to come up with a design for my tablescape and also describe what props and other decorative elements would set the scene for this wedding.
Does this sound like an event you would like to attend? Would this wedding theme appeal to you? Let me know :)
Assignment 10 was about researching and planning the correct entertainment to fit in the with the wedding theme and also appeal to the Bride, Groom and Guests. I put an entertainment proposal together for the couple to see how I envisage their day playing out.
Does the entertainment proposed above whet your appetite? Please do Let me know what you think. :)
This assignment was about Lighting and Aesthetics within events, including weddings. It was very interesting learning about the cost effective ability of using lighting within a wedding to ‘set the scene’ as well as evoking a feeling and creating an atmosphere. Just a flick of a switch can change the whole tempo of the day. It certainly got my creative juices going.
This assignment was so interesting! The ‘Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend’ wedding was fully designed, however, the bride got back in contact and requested an ending to the wedding that would ‘go off with a bang’ and create a brilliant atmosphere.
I have linked what I came up with below. Please take a look and let me know what you think :)
I am really really looking forward to working on the next assignment. I am going to be designing and creating a design for a tablescape! I will be back with photo’s of the actual design soon :)
