English Crackers in Bethesda, Maryland..........






I've been working with a very special client for the past three months on a special request for her post-wedding reception. It will take place in a beautiful garden in Bethesda, Maryland. 100 English Crackers were ever so delicately put together and embellished with handmade crepe tissue peonies, tea stained crepe paper all sewn into beautiful ruffles, then embellished with metallic gold ribbons and satin floral leaves. Wonderful trinkets fill the crackers, I'll keep those a secret...shh. The papers used were pink Parisian with embossed flourishes and bright colored peony orange and a gold lumae also with embossed flourishes. I then decoupaged beautiful peony napkins with gold hand stamped vows on them. The ends were carefully burned for the vintage finish. As an added detail each cracker received a quote beautifully done on vellum paper. I wish my client a wonderful life with her new husband and always remember to stop and smell the peonies! Bon Vie' Jennifer & Brad!
