I often wonder how a company plans a multi-day festival; lining up musicians, VIP's, sponsors, staging, lighting, bathrooms, food, drink, security, ticketing, parking.... geesh, I'm giving up just thinking about it. I bet the year goes by really fast for those planners.

Personally, I think this would be a cool party element, maybe in the pool at the Pavilion Bar on top of the Market Pavilion Hotel with that killer view of the city. Or in one of the lakes at Magnolia (watch out for gators!) or Middleton Place.

This should be a really good time, it's only $10 at the door. I heard the last one in November was was a great time, I had an event--same with this time, can't go, but I'll look for some pics! Peep a vid from the first Kulture Klash by Charleston'sMostUnique.com.
Speaking of North Charleston, check out the 2008 Charleston County Earth Day Festival, also this Saturday from 11am-3pm, in Park Circle. This event will be a waste-free event, everything will be recycled or composted, can you imagine?!?!

Here are some more nice little tablescapes I found surfing through the rest of The Bride's Cafe.
Burlap runners and mason jars, rustic and vintage, could be used at a place like the Cotton Dock.
Above, don't know about those stools, but, hey, whatever works!
Spring hath sprung, above.

My friend Sara is helping me with her artistic eye, and knack for attaching things, from hand made snow globes to... parasol chandeliers!
My logic for experimenting with such a fun project was the fact that tents cost so much to rent, throw a standard liner on top of that, and you're down at least a couple thousand bucks. For about $100 I think this will be much more visually pleasing and unique than a plain, white, "wedding-y" liner; or only paper lanterns, which I'll also use in moderation.

Anyway, I'm uber-excited to have found a new blog by NY based event and wedding designer Michelle Rago. Looks like she just started it in February and it already has some great eye candy.
I especially like it because she shows a lot of the "behind-the-scenes" moments that you don't ever really hear about, but all planners know how many hours it actually takes (grrrr!). Speaking of behind the scenes, I'm bringing my camera along today to document the building of the parasol chandelier for my next wedding on April 19.
