Grounds for Sculpture is home to a large ostentation of peacocks. Naturally, the theme inspiration for the reception decor walked to me (since peacocks aren’t much known for their flying abilities).
Our decorator offered to supply the wedding gift box, but I wasn’t entirely charmed by it. So set out to create my own. I used paper from Paper Source, fabric and embellished borders from Kinari Bazaar in Chandni Chowk. (Mission #5) I wanted to have box topper, kind of like a cake topper. So I took one of my Mom’s bonsai trees and spray-painted it gold and glue-gunned silver rhinestones on the flowers. For good measure, I perched two peacocks on top of the tree.
To conclude the peacock theme, I did a bit of artwork by drawing and coloring a pair of peacocks. I used this motif in the stationary for the schedule of events, the signature cocktail recipe card and table numbers.
I wore peacock jewels by Monica Kapur.
