The Green Guild gauntlet was thrown down! Member planners of the Green Wedding Guild were challenged to style a table with sustainability as a key consideration. This friendly competition, brainchild of the Green Wedding Guild directors, Emily of EKEvents and Maria of KaraMia Events was held at Windy Hill Farm in Cedar Grove. Four planners, joined by partner Guild members, excitedly picked up that gauntlet and designed their styles using these guidelines:
Green Guild Challenge Guidelines
|~ Flowers must be sourced locally and seasonally, and no floral foam may be used.|
~ No “new” items may be purchased for this shoot. Decor may be rented, borrowed, or thrifted.
~ Attire & accessories may be pre-loved, from a rental company, or from a sustainable designer.
~ Food (if used) should be seasonally & locally inspired.
~ Stationery (if used) should contain recycled content, be sourced from sustainably managed forests, or in some other way promote sustainability (eg: seed paper, bamboo paper, etc.)..
Southern Vintage Table shared our vintage lace runner, wildflower stoneware, stainless flatware, and amber goblets along with the wooden candleholders. With American Party Rentals‘ table and chairs and Event Flouret‘s lovely florals, the tablescape beautifully meets all the sustainability guidelines!
We adore this dessert table display with Happily Desserted‘s beautiful cake on our wooden cake stand, Sage & Swift‘s macarons stacked on SVT’s woven and iron tiered stand, and, of course, our vintage microscope. The florals in the vintage tin perched on top of the tiered stand is a delightful touch!
Well done, Maria! We really dig your vintage style and Elyssa’s incredible photos! Thank you for inviting us to help with your entry!
