What better way to kick off the summer than with a nautical sea celebration? Although we were not in Greece celebrating, we wanted to bring touches of Greece to Michigan. The celebration kicked off with glass bottle favors filled with olive oil found on the welcome table with silver fish or anchor charms. Guests found their seats among beautiful white chiavari chairs and pops of blue from the napkins or galvanized buckets with overflowing blue fabric to mimic water.
We used a lot of textured details from heavy duty fishnets to burlap covered risers, throughout the decor and pops of fresh greenery and succulents added a nice sea touch. When the event started the lights were dimmed and the blue uplighting created the perfect ambiance. Candles found in glass lanterns surrounded in sand and shells illuminated throughout the room as well as all the little votive candles clustered together.
Our favorite look was created with fishing restaurants found by the sea-all that was missing was the freshly picked octopus:) With hanging lanterns, dangling fish decor, fishnets and rope details, the head table was the focal part of the room. The height of the fixture did not obstruct the family seating at the table but all the boat, drift wood and candle details found at on the table created a continuous look of interest.
Wishing our dear friends, Maria and Adoni, congratulations on their son’s Baptism! Thank you for letting us be part of Sam’s special day XOXO
With lots of love, hugs and kisses
