Setting up for a wedding

There is so much left to do for the wedding this weekend, but I made a little progress today. 


The table numbers are framed ...


This wedding is following another wedding and because of that we have limited time to set-up;  I have to be even more organized then I am normally.


We like to personalize our weddings by bringing in lots of photos of the couple and quotes that are special to them ...


And I like to "set up" the different areas we are styling to visualize how it will look at the wedding.


We have a large amount of wedding props in storage and for each new wedding we seem to pick up a few new things. This wedding I am using a few things from my own home like the mercury glass lamp with the black shade. It will look great on the check-in table.


I picked up this lamp (and a matching one) a few weeks ago at HomeGoods. It was a brand new HomeGoods out of my area; I was there shopping for the medical clinic. I spotted them as they were being wheeled out of the back room. They were only $49 each and I couldn't let them pass by; I knew I would be able to use them for a client. 

Somehow they ended up in my house ... I know, I'm weak and soooo easily tempted!


But don't they look so nice?

I can't imagine you getting even more organized than you already are! Love, love the lamps and where you put them. $49? A steal!
