The Silo on 74th
What's New at The Silo
While weddings were shut down for most of 2020 we decided to look at it as a blessing in disguise, an opportunity to turn all the ideas in my head into reality. We spent the entire spring and summer working on the grounds - we added landscape lighting, we planted over a 100 trees, 150 boxwoods, 50 various other shrubs, we removed older damaged trees, moved most of the decor and antiques into one organized storage space and brought in a dozer to level the lower field. We can't wait for spring to finish all the outdoor projects and to share all the new and exciting things at the venue with our happy couples and their guests this year. Just look at all they have waiting for them.
Gardens - I have plotted and planned and dreamed of turning the lower field into a beautiful, semi-formal garden for a couple years now. Not being able to host weddings gave us the opportunity to finally work towards making that dream a reality. We have plants ordered, we have vintage lamp posts and fountains stashed waiting to be put into place and now we wait until it is warm enough to work outside.
We have lamp posts stashed and waiting to be installed for the upper reception area too.
We decided to sell our ten foot rustic X style farm tables and build ten foot authentic turned leg farm tables and they are amazing.
We are building a matching 6 foot long sweetheart table for the bride and groom.
We purchased 200 metal industrial farm style chairs to go with the new tables – we still have the benches for the ceremony site.
Our wine barrels have 48” table tops now and metal industrial farm style bar stools, the umbrellas will work with the table tops or without.
We are adding a fountain in the front circle.
We added a photo booth with props – no need for polaroid cameras.
We have doubled our vintage/antique chair & settee collection, added several more chandeliers and a 54 light, 2 tiered metal industrial barn style chandelier.
We added an amazing white steel gazebo, it is 15 feet in diameter and 13 feet tall – as soon as it quits raining it will be assembled and climbing roses planted around the base of it.
We have a new metal arbor, a metal arch and a hexagon arbor for you to use.
We purchased 300 white dinner plates and new goblets for our couples that prefer matching dinnerware. Don't worry we still have all the vintage china and crystal for those who love to mix and match.
We bought enough edison string lights to line the perimeter fence once it is finished and light the entire property.
We added disc golf and corn hole to the yard game collection.
We added 100 battery operated flickering pillar candles to our decor inventory.
We invested in patio heaters for chilly evenings.
