Need a Chuppah? Rent my Chuppah! June 3, 2009

So, I bought this Chuppah for a wedding 2 years ago and only have used it once. I am sure there are some Jewish brides out there in need of one for rent, so I figured I’d blog about it and maybe get some traffic.

For those of you who don’t know what a Chuppah is, it is:

chuppah (Hebrewחוּפָּה‎) (also spelled hupahchupah, or chuppa – plural: chuppot or chuppahs, Hebrew: חוּפּוֹת) is a canopy traditionally used in Jewish weddings. It consists of a cloth or sheet, sometimes a tallit, stretched or supported over four poles, or sometimes carried by attendants to the ceremony. Achuppah symbolizes the home the couple will build together. Chuppah literally means a canopy or a covering.

(Thanks Wikipedia!)


Rental Fees:

  • Chuppah with Fabric Only: $350/day
  • Floral elements added starting at $50
    **All rental prices include set-up, tear-down and delivery charges.**

Images of it are below…(these photos really do not do it justice but they are all I have!)

A Rustic Reception at the Byron Colby Barn May 30, 2009

IMG_0087I just did flowers and decor for Brooke and Brett’s wedding reception at The Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake. This is the 4th time I’ve done an event at this venue and every single one has been completely unique. 

For the flowers we used roses, cymbidium orchids, lisianthus, stock, hydrangea, larkspur, tulips and callas in shades of purple, lavender, green, champagne and ivory. To add to the rustic charm of the barn, we used mason jars as vases and candle holders throughout the space. We did two styles of centerpieces; for the long rectangular tables we did cluster-type arrangements in assorted cylinders and mason jars, and for the round tables at the top of the loft we did round mixed arrangements that held 3 cylinder vases with submerged tulips and floating candles. In addition to the centerpieces, we created a wreath and pomanders suspended from lavender tulle to decorate the large curved wall of the barn, we added floral and candle accents to the highboy tables, gift/memorial table and we put hydrangea on the top of the cake. And of course I cannot forget to mention the bouquets which were just stunning!!!

The couple could not have been happier with how everything turned out–which is always my favorite part of the day!
