Texan Going Away Party by Chris Nelson

Life brings about many celebrations, so why not do them in style?  Today’s inspiration shoot is all about turning the ordinary into extraordinary whether you’re planning something as huge as a wedding or something more intimate like a friend’s going away party. Michele at Before I Do Events gave this Texan going away party an old-fashioned southern style twist.  We love the warmth and intimacy she creates with those little distressed wooden touches and leather decor that contrast so beautifully the bright orange florals and subtle votives. Whether they were riding the mechanical bull, dancing the hours away, or cozying up by the fire, everyone was certain to fit right into the southern comfort style in their cowboy boots and plaid that we just can’t get enough of!
