  • 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?

  • Runway to Tabletop ~ Sequins and Lace

    Every bride wants to feel like a queen on her special day.  Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta became famous dressing America's queen, Jacqueline Kennedy, in the 1960s.  His most recent bridal collection exhibits his time-honored classic aesthetic along with a stunning mix of sequins and lace.   

    For a past wedding we took beautiful fabrics, similar to Oscar's lace and sequins, and entwined them as part of the event.  Touches of these luxurious linens were found on the seating, over the tables, and even on the wedding cake.  The event space was romantically dimmed but highlighted with rosy pink and ivy patterned lighting.  The combinations of lace, sequins, and pink made for an enchanting and fanciful display. 

    When planning your wedding remember that trends may come and go but the classics always stay classic.

  • Runway to Tabletop ~ Silver Accents‏

    We're never one to shy away from shimmering details. Our style, along with fashion house Balmain, favors ornate detailing and a sparkling, glitzy aesthetic. One of my favorite runway shows that displayed this fun and flashy design is from their fall 2011 collection.

    During one of our past events, we covered the stage with silvery mirrored details that lit up with every beam of light. The tablescapes glistened with a mix of sequins and swirling patterned linens. Warm purple andfuchsia florals added the perfect contrast against the coolness of the silver tabletops. This sterling display was definitely loved by all.
