Gardens of Bammel Lane: Open House Recap

Happy November! This year is quickly slipping us by and we have had an awesome year so far! One of our favorite events of the year, is the most recent Gardens of Bammel Lane Fall Open House. We were honored to be responsible for the style and design of the event and shared our inspirations with you prior to the big night.

The overall turnout was better than we could have ever imagined. I don't think I've ever seen the Gardens look so beautiful. We couldn't have made it possible without the help of our team of amazing vendors, especially Recollection Vintage Rentals, Something Special in Flowers and Swift & Co. for their decor and floral. It transformed the venue and highlighted their best features! We are happy to share not one, but two perspectives of the event thanks to Sarah McKenzie Photography and Christa Elyce Photography. A big thank you for sharing your beautiful images with us for our photo recap! Enjoy!

Blomes Paperie transformed the Conservatory with her paper floral. Her pieces were so complementing to the venue and a great statement piece for any event. Photo by Sarah McKenzie Photography.

Our favorite centerpiece of the night by Carol of Something Special in Flowers. Slightly biased, because this was our table. Check out our life size Pinterest board in the back created specifically for the event. Photo by Sarah McKenzie Photography.
