A stunning table set by Amanda Lindroth with a view much like mine will be from my lanai. I love the oversized hurricane and the raffia hand fans on each chair. I am so borrowing this idea. It is hard to see, but they are embroidered with the name of her house, Hope Hill.
Not really sure of the whole naming your house bit, but to each his own. I found the fans at Oriental Trading. I do like the idea of personalizing them, perhaps with my monogram BAC, or CC, or GG with an X through it (just kidding). I wonder if I could use a paint pen? Thoughts?
I found these with appliqués that are fab but $50.00 each. I found iron on appliqués like these on Etsy and Amazon for a few bucks. I bet they could be ironed on or glue gunned.

I found this great little tutorial on painting hand fans with neon paint from Michaels and a sponge brush and painter's tape. Darling idea. These are for wedding favors - I could pass on the ribbon and tags of course.

Today is the walk thru and tomorrow I close. Deliveries are piling up - the Dana Gibson large green bamboo lantern, the Ballard Designs chandelier for the breakfast room, and the Lilly Pulitzer palm chandelier for the vestibule have all been delivered, along with various and sundry other things.
Thursday I meet my painters at the house and the fun begins. I will be bringing over all the Samplize paint samples to try on the walls, ceiling, wainscoting, etc. I can't wait.
Thanks to everywhere who is following along on this journey and for your support and suggestions. You are making this process much more fun. Stay tuned, the best is yet to come.
