You know you're an event planner when...you incessantly comment on every tiny detail in someone's house because it's a real life display of a style you've seen on wedding and event blogs. Yeah, that was me the other day. It was like an inspiration board come to life. And a style that in my current position, will never get the opportunity to implement.
It's almost embarrassing to recount the sheer amazement and excitement I had over the details of the tea party I went to hosted by one of the members of my community group. As a result of perusing so many wedding and event blogs over the past year, I have developed a small (okay, maybe more like huge) obsession and love for the rustic/vintage/romantic style of event. I think it's the way that so many random pieces can come together to create something beautiful, so eclectic. I can't help but swoon over the mismatched serving ware, the wood slice boards, the lace, the succulents, the hanging terrariums. And swoon I did over every little detail of my friend's quaint house, exclaiming "oh my gosh" at, well, let's be honest, everything. It was a perfect setting for an afternoon tea party complete with scones, cucumber sandwiches, biscotti, and of course, quality girl bonding time.
