Metal Flower Art

I was invited back in June by the lovely ladies over at Southern Weddings to create a southern inspired table-scape for their newest issue which is now out on newsstands.  I teamed up with my favorite gal, Joy Thigpen, who designed a table around old engine parts resembling flowers she found at a local dump.

With gorgeous calligraphy from Betsy Dunlap, thrifted glasses filled with sweet tea, and napkins wrapped with washers/nuts from Lowe’s…you have the perfect mix of southern sweetness and modern elegance.
