Weddings & Event Planning
A 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration held at The Estate in Sonoma, California
Each table held a wine bottle with a special label denoting the occasion and the "Bin No." for guests to match up with their placecard they had plucked from the grapevine tree.
Instead of tablecloths, 12" x 12" custom-made tiles incorporating the Personal Wine Label of the Host and Hostess were placed at each table setting. On the tile's wine label, the year of the wine's vintage was changed to "Vintage 1959" - the year of the couple's marriage, and their names were placed in the upper left corner, replacing the alcohol content.
Each guest received a tile as a gift, given to them in bubble bags with a duplicate of the placecard made into a stick-on label for the bags, and placed into alphabetical order for easy distribution. The tiles can be used as trivets for hot or cold food dishes.
The entertainment for the evening was an Italian Trio that strolled among the guests at the tables singing, playing and taking requests.
