Cabinet Decorating Project

A few weeks ago the lovely Heidi, fabulous Catering Manager at Granite Bay Golf Club, asked if I would like to give a fresh look to the club’s entry foyer cabinet. “Sure.” I said. “Sounds like fun.” Unfortunately, I could not have all four shelves to the cabinet as the members of the golf club want their trophies displayed (what’s up with that notion?). I invited my pal, Sarah Acrich of Cuttings Floral Design, to assist me. We brain-stormed one night (over a few glasses of wine!) and came up with the theme of “Four Fabulous Seasons of Weddings at Granite Bay Golf Club.” Sarah created beautiful wreaths to display in each of the window panels for the seasonal vignettes. She’s very good! Below is the entire cabinet.

Winter is in the icey-silver tones with blue/green and silvery peacock feathers. The wreath has bare branches with a touch of glitter sparkle and snowflakes. Champagne flutes and a bucket for the bottle of of bubbly were added. The two photos in frames were taken by The Memory Journalists. Look closely at the left picture and you’ll see the bride wore white “wedding uggs.” Perfect!



Spring has the color palette of purple and green. Sweet jonquils, a bird’s nest, fern, message rocks and pebbles complete this scene. The photo displayed, shot on the beautiful grounds of Granite Bay, was taken by Jordan’s Photographic Designs.


Summer was a fun vignette to create. Sarah’s sunflower wreath included a beautiful trio of butterlies. My mouth watered as I rimmed the glass with lemon sugar for the perfect Lemon Drop beverage (a drink Granite Bay expertly prepares!) and, no those are not real lemons and strawberries… amazing how realistic fake fruit can look! The photo displayed was taken inside the Conservatory by Jeff of Sharpe Photographers, and just so happens to be the wedding of Darcie & Glenn (Darcie owns Slip of Elegance Chaircovers ). It was a lovely wedding!


Autumn (my most favorite time of year) is richly showcased using the colors of burgundy and gold. The square shaped wreath contains pomegranates, seedpods, wheat and a beautiful wide brocade ribbon. A gold charger, gold rimmed wine glass, acorn favor and a message written on a plate, in chocolate “Will you marry me?” finish off this seasonal display. The picture of the lovely couple looking toward the clubhouse was taken by Megan of Christopher Kight Photographers.

So, if you ever find yourself out at Granite Bay Golf Club, check out the entry foyer cabinet. It’s a work of art! And, for those brides looking for a wonderful wedding and reception venue, absolutely consider this property. And tell Heidi, that I sent you!!
