November Rehearsal In A Barn
Kristi Gill (Mom) SUMMIT, MS
My son's wedding was held at the bride's family home in Gillsburg, a tiny community in southwest Mississippi, 30 minutes from everywhere. Luckily a family friend had a barn close by that was a perfect venue for the rehearsal dinner. The tables were set with orange chargers and Blue Willow china for a colorful fall theme. The centerpieces were copper lanterns surrounded by Coffee Break roses and terracotta mums, along with greenery and orange mini pumpkins. The roses and mums were gorgeous together! The huge arrangement in the center of the barn was arranged in an antique concrete planter. I used the roses and mums along with greenery from my yard and the woods, and wild grasses from the side
of the road. It was a spectacular arrangement that received so many compliments. The groom's table at the wedding was decorated in a duck hunting/outdoor theme. I created an arrangement in a tall Peter's Pottery vase using roses, mums, magnolia leaves and cattails. I also had enough roses to decorate the groom's cheesecake! Adding a few sprigs of rosemary from my garden was the perfect finishing touch. The flowers arrived on time with no problems. I would definitely recommend Fifty Flowers!
