- Wedding: February 2012
Remember making dioramas as kids? So I’m wondering how feasible this will be and if anyone’s ever tried something like this…I’m considering making a Boston Public Garden/Boston Common diorama for all the different landmarks/flowers/trees and events at the Park in the city?
I’m getting married in an indoor conservatory/terrarium so it’s the perfect place for a garden wedding but I thought I’d take the idea one step further and make it a specific garden wedding – the Boston Public Garden/Boston Common. Boston celebrates four seasons so there’s virtually every flower imaginable in this park, most notably, a tulip patch, a rose patch and purple alliums. There are political statues (George Washington on a horse) and historical landmarks (Make Way for Ducklings statue), swan boats and beautifully landscaped and architectured trees and land taken after english gardens.
With so much stuff going on I thought I’d create one little scene in a fishbowl for each idea. Some ideas so far:
Tulips in Bloom in front of George Washington on a Horse Statue
Shakespeare in the park in an outdoor ampitheater/gazebo in summer;
Ice skating at Frog Pond in winter
Cherry Blossoms/Plum Blossom submerged in water to showcase the trees in the park
Tea Party at the Ritz Carlton
I’ve already got little plastic white swan basins that I thought could be the escort cards and favors – and it could signify the Swan Boats in the BPG
First I”m wondering, how feasible do you think this kind of a project is? I got the idea from several fishbowl centerpieces on Michaels website. Also, if you are familiar with Boston at all, I’m wondering what scenes do you think I should and could create in a fishbowl centerpiece? Something different for each table? I’m thinking I could find christmas ornaments to create a lot of the different events, like the statues, horse, a gazebo and then add flowers and shrubbery where needed.
