We’ve had the honor of participating in The Gardens of Bammel Lane Fall Open House for the past three years, and this year really wanted to push the envelope. The venue is a charming, English-inspired garden tucked away in the River Oaks area. The Gardens has become one of our favorite venues because it provides a beautiful foundation to work with -the natural greenery and floral, great natural light, the quaint gazebo and the stunning conservatory. As Momma would say, “it has good bones” and can accommodate a wide range of styles. In the past, we’ve styled the venue as shabby chic and garden tea party, but this year decided to play off of the greenery and go au natural.
We chose colors that were warm and inviting, yet still modern and bright. Shades of yellow, pops of orange, tons of greenery and soothing greys to balance it out. The perfect combination to bring us into the fall season. To keep with the natural theme, we kept the design minimalistic, bringing color in through linens and floral. We are experimenting with floral in terms of texture and height, and with a variety of vessels -apothecary jars, beakers and terrariums. Expect to see the Gardens transformed by our arrangements, with the help of Carol Cox from Something Special in Flowers. Aside from a nature enthusiast, our bride is an artist so we incorporated illustrations into the invitations and stationary, designed by Artful Designs by Rachel Nieman, and envision a “leaf shading” station as an interactive guestbook.
We’ve been so inspired with this design and the planning process, and hope this gives you a little bit of insight before this week’s open house on Thursday, September 26th at 6:00 pm. The open house is setup like an actual wedding so we’ll have all the key players for you to meet. We’ve put together an amazing team of vendors and can’t wait for you to see our ideas brought to life! If you haven’t yet, RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to visit our booth.
