Community: 48 Fields Dinner

Earlier this summer, friends from the creative community of the Rising Tide Society - Tuesdays Together, gathered for an evening of fun.  Usually we are working weddings and events and never have a chance to sit and enjoy our work.  This time was different.  We created this lovely dinner, featuring the work of some of the most lovely creatives I know.  When creatives get together, watch out!

We created a beautiful dinner at 48 Fields just outside of Leesburg, VA, filling the space with 3 king's tables.  These farm tables were the perfect backdrop to showcase floral design by Lark Floral, La Fleur du Jour and Beaumont House Design.  We each brought our own style to the tables and the overall effect was magic!  

 I love designing long tables!  The inspiration for this table came from an English potting shed and featured a collection of potted plants, cut flowers, boxwood and vintage books on gardening from my library.

 This was one of my favorite photos of the evening.  The late afternoon light was perfect and it shows off each of the table designs.

 Tulips in a silver vase is a look I never tire of.  This julep cup was a wedding gift to my parents.

 I spend a lot of time reading through gardening books.  This guide to roses is my mother's.  I have big goals to successfully grow roses but haven't had great luck.

 These hellebores came straight from my garden and were perfect in this wooden box.

 I love this little barrel container with a boxwood in it. All the flowers for this tables were locally sourced or foraged.

 These are onion sets from the local feed store and honeysuckle vine from our fence row.  I planted the onions and enjoyed them on our early summer salads.

 Very rarely do I have a chance to sit for a photo during event set up.  This is not a military jacket but rather my dad's gardening coat that I love to wear.  He was career military and my mom sewed his name tag on this jacket, in case anyone forgot who it belonged to!  I love wearing it and thinking of him tending to his garden.  I'm thrilled to happy to share this evening with you and share credit with the uber talented creative team that made for a magic evening.    Photography and Design: Bethanne Arthur Photography Instagram: @BethanneArthur    www.BethanneArthurphotography.com     Planning and Design: The One Moment Events instagram: @TheOneMomentEvents    www.TheOneMomentEvents.com     Cake Topper: Lauren Heim Studio  www.LaurenHeim.com  Instagram: @LaurenHeimstudio    Venue:  48 Fields  Instagram: @48Fields    www.48Fields.com     Table and Chair Rentals:  Jefferson Rentals   www.Jefferson-Rentals.com     Tableware Rentals:  Grand Rental Station  Instagram: @Grandrentalstationwincva  http://grandrentalwinchesterva.com     Vintage Furniture and Cake Plates:  Faccia Fresca Vintage  Instagram: @FacciaFrescaVintage     Catering:  Hidden Julles-Haymarket  Instagram: @HiddenJullesCafe     Florals Table 1:  Lark Floral  Instagram: Lark Floral  http://www.larkfloral.com     Florals Table 2:  Beaumont House Design  Instagram: @Beaumontflowers    http://www.beaumont-house.com     Florals Table 3:  La Fleur du Jour  Instagram: @lafleurdujour    http://www.lafleurdujour.com     Signage:  Shrimp Salad Circus  Instagram: @Shrimpsaladcircus    http://www.shrimpsaladcircus.com     Paper goods:  Caitlin Creative Works  Instagram: @CaitlinCreativeWorks    http://www.caitlincreativeworks.com     Wine:  Zephaniah Farm Vineyard  Instagram: @zephwine    http://www.zephwine.com     Cookie Favors:  Noshy  Instagram: @getnoshy    http://www.getnoshy.com     Amazing cake:  Sweets by e  Instagram: @Sweetsby_e    http://www.sweetsbye.com
