Moss and Vintage Lace Baskets

These little baskets are flower girl baskets, that I've designed for an outdoor October wedding at Perini Ranch in Buffalo Gap, Texas.
The bride is simply gorgeous and her theme is vintage botanical. She will have antique chandeliers hanging in the trees and will be married beneath one of the trees.
 The bride's mother sent me an assortment of laces, collected by her great-grandmothers. Will post photos of the laces, as each is a work of art.
These are inexpensive wicker baskets that I covered inside and out, with green moss. The handles were wrapped with the vintage lace and then small leaves and lace flowers were added. A vintage pearl was added to each flower center. They will be traveling to Texas tomorrow. Since it is still very hot in Texas and amazingly warm in Pennsylvania, I've been waiting for the weather to cool down a bit, before subjecting the baskets to Texas heat while intransit.
I've also designed a ribbon embroidered picture frame that will be displayed with a quilt. As the guests arrive, each will sign a block on the quilt. The ring bearer pillow is ivory silk doupioni embellished with an assortment of laces. Looking forward to the wedding!
