No doubt about it, color is super hot right now but how can you go wrong with white? I love these little details from a wedding last summer – all white with little hits of color and texture. It is hard to see but the signature cocktail had a gold flake garnish to add a little sparkle. Pure and simple!
Trends come and go as we all know. My thought for colors for 2012 – ALL OF THEM!!! Why hold back? Here is a good example of using color. Last fall I had the opportunity to work on a table scape with the talented Dolce Design Studio in Los Angeles for a Bride an Bloom shoot. The theme was Bohemian. The table runner was a lavender Moroccan patterned linen and the florals were a variety of rich, burgundy peonies, green hydrangeas, beautiful pink garden roses, orchids and much more, all contained in an eclectic mix of vessels. To some the assortment may seem a bit chaotic but if styled right, it can be dramatic and inviting.
Did Mariel & Mike get a fantastic wedding gift! 82 degree weather the last weekend in November. What a treat for all their New York guests. Their wedding was at the Fairmont in Santa Monica. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were plentiful complete with a mini reuben station and fish-n-chips paired with a mini glass of pilsner. The ballroom was beautiful, thanks to Eric Buterbaugh, Keith at the Lighter Side, Resource One and Classic Party Rentals. Congratulations Mariel and Mike!!
