Last night was the first event at our new park, it was a dinner for members of the Department of Natural Resources board. Let me explain a little about this park it is a traditional state park but also houses the DNR headquarters. So this is “THE” Park in the state because the Director of all the State Parks is here and a lot of very important people in the world of parks come here. Last night was a pretty big deal for my husband, “the new guy”. Part of being wife a park means you get volunteered (by your husband mostly) to do things, somethings are more fun then others. Thankfully last nights was a lot of fun. I was asked to come up with inexpensive table decorations… oh and take pictures (thanks Hannah 😉 ). The event was in an open air pavilion with activities out on the lawn like archery, corn hole, disk golf, tree climbing and camp fire of course. I decided to go with something very outdoorsy and use at many natural elements as I could since we are on a state park after all.
For the guest tables I used mason jars wrapped in hemp twine with a leaf, acorn and candles, . These sat on a tree cookie surrounded by moss and pine cones and acorns
For the food table I did one large centerpiece made up of candles in terracotta pots with moss and pine cones surrounded by vines, leaves, berries and pumpkins.
It was a perfect fall night.
Here are few images of the from the night’s fun.
It really was a great time!
Park life is good 🙂
