When I found the Mikasa figurine, last winter, I had no idea how it would be used for the wedding. I gave some thought to placing it under a cloche, for the guest registry table.
While we were tossing around ideas for a card receiver, I remembered I had this gazebo tucked away in the basement storage area. It was a creamy white and the metal leaves were green and rust. The decision was made to paint the gazebo and stand white. The more I thought about it, the more I could see the Mikasa couple "dancing" in the gazebo. I finished the project, this morning, by adding tulle and preserved leaves. The figurine is secured with florist putty. Cards will be slipped between the columns.
