It started out as just a flicker. A flutter that flew through my thoughts- and soon became an idea that I had to make happen. Here are some pictures of my table from Indie Wed this past weekend- completely filled with friendly butterflies.

Six feet by six feet sounds like such a big space- until you start filling it.
Man, butterflies sure take up a lot of room.

I was actually calling it "Into the Woods" I wanted visitors to feel as if they wandered into an area that had just sort of rooted itself and grown up all around them.

I found out on my journey "Into the Woods" that a pinecone garland takes a really long time to make. Really long. Its joined by a little button mum garland.

I covered the entire table with a delicious tablecloth made of fresh moss. It just feels soft and earthy and all around wonderful. (I even promised a groom that if he was there at the end of the event, I'd let him lay down on it for a quick nap- it really does feel that nice.)

Left to my own devices, I chose my favorite colors- GREEN and PURPLE! (And some white- okay lots of white- which really isn't one of my favorite colors, but I thought it would look pretty never-the-less....)
And a stump. A stump that I saw at the kids park last week that was really large, but conveniently hollowish. I made Jamie go down to the park the night before the show & steal it. (Is steal the right word? Can you steal a tree stump? ) He cut into it and it cracked graciously in half for my use.

And lo, what is this that I spy? I got lost in the woods and came out with some business cards. (Can I use that "I don't know how much time had gone by in the enchanted forest" bit about why I haven't had cards for so long? Hmmm? No? )

I thought I'd give it a try.

Inspiration for the butterflies came from here...via here- thank you so much!

  5. Curious, what are the butterflies attached to/ hanging on? Is it a sheer cloth, plexi glass, clear shower curtain or something else?
