Backyard Shabby Chic Birdhouses and Lanterns

Laurie Mitchel opened up her beautiful home to a small group of board members and donors of The New Children Museum.

In addition to the antique birdhouse and lanterns, butcher paper was place on the table and mason jars were used for the waters glasses.    Clearly a relaxed and uncontrived evening – guests were wearing jeans and coloring with pastels on the tables!  This is a great way to jazz up your backyard with friends and family without making it feel too formal. Cute. Unique. Sre to be a crowd pleaser.

Pastels were placed long the table so the guests could casual display their artistic abilities.

Bird nests, finches, sheet moss, beach rocks where incorporated in the design to create a shabby chic feeling to the event.  Accent of zinnias, gerbera daisies, giant dahlias, and succulents were tacked in to soften the natural elements.
