A few weeks ago, we made an announcement on social media about our new event planning endeavor, C&P Gathers. Recently, C&P Gathers had the pleasure of decorating for Murray Main Street's Market to Menu dinner.
The event was held in the beautiful Robert O. Miller Conference Center, which was the former Murray post office. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful, light-filled space with HUGE windows to work with and lights strung from the ceiling.
To start, we knew we wanted to respect the event, a farm-to-table style meal. That meant keeping the decor simple, rustic, and natural with pops of elegance. We filled our favorite, most versatile glass vases (available in both stores) with beautiful, fresh flower arrangements and greenery from A Festive Touch. We placed lanterns with candles in the window sills and added more fresh greenery around them to highlight the gorgeous windows.
We also used these cool, organically shaped gold vases elevated with a vintage wooden piece in the center of the table to define the space.
To create ambiance, we filled the tables with lit votives in clear glass holders. The result was a calm, intimate, candlelit setting.
The beautiful menus were designed & lettered by Amanda Newman of PeachesPrintsEtc and printed on farm-style napkins.
We set up stately, oversized candle holders in the entrance to welcome guests, as well as a painted chalkboard made from a vintage frame, hand-lettered by our own Megan Hendrix.
Special thanks to Murray Main Street for having us! We loved decorating for such an awesome local event. Evenings such as these are why our town is so special!
