Today was the home tour
that I told you about a couple weeks ago.
My friend Jenn and were asked
to stage a couple rooms
in a gorgeous old home in town
in a Derby Party theme
to promote our business,
Blue Cardinal Antiques & Vintage.
|View of the back of the home.....lovely.|
We decorated a formal dining room,
a family room game table,
and their galley kitchen.
Thought I would share
the formal areas first
and save the casual scenes
for another posting.
We got to choose the theme,
and when we saw
the red plaid upholstered
walls in the formal dining room
and knew that this tour date was just
two days before the Kentucky Derby,
it just made sense.
|Jenn had custom horse ribbons made for the chair tie-backs.|
|A local florist donated the flowers for the fundraiser.|
|Made these horse displays using vintage Breyer horses.|
|The small sideboard was set up for a Kentucky bourbon tasting.|
|The large buffet was arranged for serving mint juleps.|
|Little rose cupcakes filled monogrammed cups at each place setting.|
|Mint juleps in a wooden galley tray ... faux ice chips.|
|Max, the butler/mannequin, held a tray with a "pretend" invitation|
that we bought from a super talented gal on Etsy. Link to her here!
Two months of planning,
two days to set up,
and two hours to tear down.
What a whirlwind!
Back home with my feet up
and a mint julep in my hand.
(Just kidding. I prefer a nice glass of red.)
We had an 85 degree day here today.
Could not have been more perfect
for a tour of five homes.
enjoyed the little recap!
More to come.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
