The front of the Ford Plantation. As the bus pulled up around this beautiful fountain sweet Jenn was waiting on the porch & pretended to be crying because of the rain. It would have made an adorable post but, we were all in the trolley with the plastic sheets dropped to protect us from the showers.
As she escorted us through the house & out the back door this tent is what we saw. Our creative oasis for the day. Below you see me standing behind Jenn's beautiful Belle Mannequin with a view of the river behind me.
And there is adorable Nicole standing by our table just waiting to get started. Don't you LOVE how Jenn had the petticoats over the parasols to create this precious decor? I LOVED THIS LOOK!
And here is the PINK table next to ours.
This was the table setting. Everything was pink & aqua with ruffles galore! The same cute manni's dressed in the pink petticoats from the first night celebration found their way to be table decor again. A treat for sure. If you missed that post be sure & go back to check it out to see the amazing talent Jenn has for all the wonder & MAGIC of this event.
Each chair back had this adorable little green tulle apron on a hanger. I'm telling you she doesn't miss a thing!
This is the instructors table with all of the examples for our class project. Click on any photo to enlarge it to see better details.
A few close ups of Christine's Class Samples. This gals talent will knock your socks off when you meet her. In her beginning talk she shared some of her ideas for inspiration boards, working with colors & some of her training in costume design. AMAZING! Thank you Christine.
Now for a few of the other girls work for Christine's class. The talent present for this event was pretty darn impressive.
Sorry for the white of the flash on this photo of my Buddy Jodie's manni but, it was too dark in the tent at this time to come out without a flash. I had a cute photo of Jodie sitting next to her manni but, a little technical error (I put the same photo in twice... no I'm not tired) so sorry girlfriend...you missed the photo shoot but, I love the Manni.
And these two photos are of Rosalyn Sue's Manni. She spent a HUGE amount of time completing this (I think she passed on the parasol & spent both class times on this treasure) but, it is so elegant & has sooooooooooo much extra work put in on it. AMAZING JOB Rosalyn Sue. Also, hope you are feeling better sweetie. She was hospitalized for complications with her asthma at the end of this trip.
Here is Shelly working on her manni. Shelly is a beautiful gal & super talented. She lives pretty close so I hope to see her my next visit to Oklahoma City.
BEAUTIFUL WORK SHELLY!
I don't know who this cutie belongs to but, I loved the color & the trims used.
I think this is another one of Christine's. Yeah SHE'S GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!
And this one is my roommate Heidi's Manni. Sweet! Love her use of colors & fabrics. I will tell you that using a heavier upholstery fabric as her base fabric made this extra difficult but, that sweetie just didn't let that stop her.
ONE LAST MANNI... and it belongs to my friend Kris Hurst. Last Halloween I bought TWO CD's of Halloween images from this talented genius. I LOVE THEM & she has a new one coming out this fall so be SURE & go visit her to see the wonder she creates & tell her Charlene sent you. You will see that Kris is all about Halloween. Very pretty my precious one of the witches would whisper.
