  • Runway to Tabletop ~ Beautiful Boxwood

    Watters bridal always know how to strike that perfect balance between time-honored and contemporary design.  Their most recent collection is no exception, as they sent models down the runway in dresses ranging from a classic cap-sleeve to a bohemian sheer lace.  Besides the graceful gowns, what stood out for us was the boxwood backdrop.

    Recently, we styled an affair with our own beautiful boxwood panels!  Our design team incorporated the boxwood walls with white millwork panels, purple payette drapes, and bold splashes of lighting with whimsical butterflies.  This joyful display definitely set the tone for a lovely and lively evening.

    Whether you're wanting to set the stage for a grand ball or needing a clean and modern backdrop, our boxwood panels will gorgeously get the job done!
