Over the weekend, we bought beach pails from Michael’s. They were on sale, and I envisioned them as part of our tablescape for the wedding. We haven’t finalized the tablescape yet, but I think that will happen Wednesday. We are down to make the tiniest decisions, but they are all so big. It’s the details that make every party. The details are what people keep talking about weeks after the event. It’s the music, the tablescape, and of course the food. I think we’re pretty set, but I’m still nervous.
I think being nervous before any party is a normal. This doesn’t get better as you plan more of them really, or well not for me. I am a perfectionist. I want to be the consummate hostess. My best advice to anyone planning a party is to have a clear point of view and theme. You have to know what you want to convey and then you have to follow through. For us, it was all about a Southern rustic wedding with a color scheme that would pop.
I spent the weekend prepping for our wedding. We started with three types of pails or well colors of pails. Some of them were pink, orange, and navy with fish. The object of this weekends project was to make everything uniform. We used Rustoleum Paint + Primer in navy to ensure that every pail was consistent. This just proves that a $2.00 pail can be made into anything you want it to be whenever you want it to be that. I would say this project costs me about $5.00 total. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
