Summer time instantly brings back memories of the lake or beach. To continue last week's theme, I'm dreaming of the beach once again but this time it's the celebrity playground of St. Barths. This island is home to the luxury lifestyle brand, Calypso St. Barth, which is known for their colorful caftans, cozy cashmere cardigans, and beach inspired décor. Calypso's motto is to offer their clients, "a wonderfully refreshing sense of escape."
For a recent event, we created our own sense of escape with our favorite beach inspired elements and added them to our traditional design touches. The table linens ranged from sparkling white sequin paillettes (like the sea) to metallic gold patterned linens (like the sand). The floral centerpieces used classic roses and hydrangea and mixed them with tropical pink gingers for a completely unique design. The combination of linens and flowers evoked a hint of the beautiful beach-like adornment.
Sometimes a theme should be subtle while other times a direct approach is needed. For us the beauty is in the balance...
...or in this case, the beach!
