An hour before the show was to start our table was set and ready to go when out of the corner of my eye I saw the table start to slide. Sadly one of the legs of the table was broken and wasn’t locked into place. Our beautiful flower arrangement from Somerset Floral Design came crashing down to the floor.
This is where our “roll with the punches” attitude kicked into high gear. Instead of flying off the handle, we assessed the damage and decided how to recreate our table before the show opened. Thankfully the staff and volunteers at the Grant-Humphreys Mansion were quick to help with anything we needed. We quickly had our linen in the dryer, a mop to clean up the water and new glassware to reconstruct our centerpiece.
Unfortunately, we didn’t take a picture of the completed table before it fell. Here is a photo from Somerset Floral Design before they delivered the arrangement and a photo of what we pieced together after the crash. In the end we still had a great display and enjoyed meeting a lot of wonderful couples during the show.
Thank you to Colby Elizabeth Photography for the photos.
