It’s the little details that add up to a memorable day; their pendant banner set the stage for a sweet after-dinner dessert bar to be unveiled later in the night.

I love how they carried the book theme to their centerpieces! Classic novel titles graced each whimsical grouping of flowers and found objects – I want the Pride and Prejudice table!
