Sylvan Glam

Some of the best cathedrals in Europe feel like the woods to me, and alternately, sometimes the woods can feel completely transcendent. It seems to me that a forest is just as fancy a place as any for a full on glamorous fete. (Provided there are proper accommodations adjacent, of course.) Can’t you imagine a string quartet out in those fallen red leaves. Ooo! And a harp! What else do you see?

i love the idea of chandeliers hanging in the woods…i’ve driven past a ton of random trees off of the road that have been decorated and it makes my day…excellent board.

The shoes in the Jasmine Star picture are beautiful!! I also love chandeliers in rustic settings, the contrast is nice.

How evil to show those Kate Spade shoes when they are not on the Kate Spade site for me to buy!
