Divine Weddings Whitsundays had the pleasure of styling and decorating the grand opening of The Pickled Tarts B&B on Saturday 7th May 2016. It was an awesome event with a 60's retro theme. The free family open event attracted an array of colourful locals and visitors encouraging many to dress up and join in the fun.
The Pickled Tarts B&B. This beautiful classic shabby chic homestead situated on 15 Acres in the heart of Conway, boasts 7 beautiful rooms, an onsite kitchen, relaxed chill out areas and a swimming pool. Whether you're looking for a country get away or wish to hold an event or wedding, The pickled Tarts has a little something for everyone. It's also pet friendly!
A large Marquee was set up at the back of the property along with seating, tables, and a bouncy castle for the kids. A mobile bar served a range of refreshments and the Cosmos Street Cafe van also provided a range of yummy burgers and food.
Divine Weddings Whitsundays lit the Marquee from within, with a display of LED lights and lanterns to enhance the ambience and mood. It certainly added that wow factor above the stage dancing areas. The music equipment, drums and stage were provided by Airlie Beach Music.
Entertainment was provided by the Brisbane Band "The viper room". Local Singer Tahlia also performed and "Michael Jackson" aka TJ wowed the children and Adults alike with his amazing dance moves.
One of the highlights of the day was the visit of the London 1960's double decker bus on which people could climb on board and have photo opportunities. The driver was also dressed up as a Beefeater!
Outside in the garden out of the Front of The Pickled Tarts B&B sits a beautiful piano. This was adorned with flowers and attracted much interest from visitors to go and have a play.
Styling the Hippy tent was a pleasure to do and so much fun! It provided a relaxing chill out area for young families and children who enjoyed the sensory experience of all the colours and textures of the fabrics.
Visitors to the Hippy Tent were able to relax on the many cushions and rugs, take in the ambience of colour and light from within and still view the entertainment on the stage.
Divine Weddings Whitsundays chose to style the tables with a rustic theme to match the country setting in which The Pickled Tarts is situated. Hessian table runners lined the tables accompanied by a lace overlay and rustic log centre piece to add height.
Detailed elements included hand made lace and hessian wraps on the jars and bottles in which Sunflowers and daisies provided the bright floral touch and colour. Candles provided ambience and a colourful glow as the event continued into the evening.
