Carol and I were instantly drawn to the pieces we saw emerge from this class. Our group suddenly became compote crazy, at least those who weren't already in that category. Across the country there was a search on for "compotes"...where, what color, can you paint them, what materials. We have had a great time watching the designs emerge from this group of Chapel Designers.
Isha Foss, one of our group, came up with the idea of a Blog Blitz...for lack of a better title. What if each of us created a compote and then posted it on our blog? What if we each then provided a link to all the other blogs in our blog posting? Well, you can imagine people jumped at the idea. An idea is born and embraced.
We had a great time designing in our compotes and are happy to share the results. As much as we love our compotes...what we really LOVE is being a part of the Chapel Designers!
Here are our compote designs! We certainly hope that our west coast brides come to embrace this style. We would love to see them featured in some of their weddings!
