  • Mood Board Monday ~ over-the-top orchids

     Simple can be fine... even necessary sometimes.  Other times only the over-the-top will do!  Right now we're lusting after these fabulous florals that look like they were designed for royalty.  The orchid inspiration above remind us of a similar centerpiece we did last year.  This year we're thinking on a bigger scale.  

    In this case, bigger is most certainly better!

  • Runway to Tabletop ~ Pretty Pastels‏

    Pastels are an unstoppable trend.  Every spring I find myself wanting to include mint green, light blue, and colorful coral into my wardrobe.  Back in 2012, Louis Vuitton created one of my all time favorite shows.  It was an unforgettable springtime candy colored extravaganza!   What I remember most was the bright lemon yellow skirts, robin's egg blue tulle, tiny touches of pink, and ladylike lace details on almost every garment. 

    For a recent ladies luncheon, we couldn't wait to decorate with pastels that were reminiscent of the Vuitton show.  We draped the tables with our classic colorful linens and alternated with feminine watercolor brushstroke linens.  In keeping with the spring theme, we staged beautiful orchid blooms as the centerpiece of each table in the historical First National Center.  To finish off this pastel palette, we complemented the room with a white sequin paillette backdrop for a touch of sparkle... 

    ... because after all, who doesn't love a little sparkle?
