Afternoon Tea and a Conversation About Wind

Chicken wire is one of the best things ever, and I'm always really excited when I see it in event photos. Bride and Groom Courtney and Geoff used it as a great idea for for their creative escort card station.

One of the things I never thought about before holding an outside wedding, is that unless you live in a place that really has zero wind, a little wind goes a long way in moving things around. You'll often notice signs with open vents cut into them. This is so there is a place for the wind to get through.

If you're working with a large plane like a board for escort cards, unless it is pretty heavy (sheet of wood) or firmly secured (nails), it may blow over. So for example, you could cover a piece of matte board with lovely cloth and stand it upright, but with a little wind, it might come right back down. Chicken wire is a great material that takes wind into account simply by by the nature of it's design. (Although I'm sure its engineers weren't thinking about wind specifically.)

So between the two images, lovely feminine straws and the graphical nature of the chicken wire, these two things would make a kick ass bridal shower or afternoon tea. (I'm obsessed with a drink I don't drink.)
