Daughters Wedding - Need Ideas for A Secret Garden Theme

Hi everyone,


I am back on, but I need help.  My daughter is getting married on August 11, 2012 at the Mendenhall Inn, in Chadds Ford, PA.  Her theme is a Secret Garden.  Her colors are pale pink, pale green, ivory and green.  Other than incorporating keys into her favors, escort cards and menu cards, and naming each table a different flower(done in a botannical design) does anyone else have any suggestions.  PIcs would be wonderful.  My creative well is running dry.


 


Thanks in advance.

I envision dreamy centerpieces!  Maybe birdcages with some flowers in them?  I think one of our previous brides DIY birdcages with real flowers for such a small dollar amount.  Or maybe more elaborate florals, if the budget allows.


I also envision a lot of greenery, to make the florals more plush and gardeny feeling!  And also, I'd suggest staying away from structured/defined floral arrangements to keep things feeling more natural. 


I've even seen brides use potted plants as altar arrangements, reception decor, etc.  Those would be easy DIY, then something to take home or give to close guests.

I knew the ladies of PW would have some awesome ideas.  Her centerpieces come with the venue,however, she chooses the flowers.


 


This is the stock photo.  Her centerpieces will not have the tapers.  Her centerpieces will be pinks and greens with hanging ivy. She has DIY votives to put around her centerpieces and pink chair sashes.

Her coctail hour is in the Atrium.  It has French windows and plants.  She is putting pomanders on shepherds hooks.


 


Thanks so much for the ideas.  Please keep them coming.
