"Into the Woods"
This intimate dinner party took place in the majestic Armstrong Redwoods Natural Reserve in Northern California. The vision was to create a setting equal parts luxurious and rustic, a world of opposites perfectly married. Here we see such details as formal lucite chairs set directly on the leaf-covered ground and polished brass candle sticks juxtaposed with the unfinished wood of the plank table, all framed by the formality of a central chandelier - but homemade of moss and twinkle lights.
"A shower in bloom"
Set in the center of a blooming peach orchard, this baby shower was the ultimate celebration of new beginnings. Surrounded by the peach blossoms, guests were greeted by a collection of hand-made dream weavers, intended to catch only the best of dreams for the new little one. Peach-filled cake, dip-dyed napkins, pastel water-color menus and a floral garland table runner, were all inspired by the incredible surroundings.
This event, co-hosted with Anthropologie and Co., inspired our guests to refresh their look, their home and their palate. After learning about the latest in home decor, and the season's latest fashion trends from Anthropologie stylists, all were treated to a meal inspired by the freshness of citrus. A menu made up of a full lemonade bar, orange caprese salad, and lemon fusilli pasta made us all feel almost as fresh as our new looks did!
"boho birthday bash"
While some 30th birthday parties are all out ragers, the vision for this one was just the opposite: casual, relaxing and intimate. To accomplish this welcoming feeling we combined a number of boho elements with eclectic vintage furniture and created intimate gathering areas around the yard - cozy and memorable spaces for friends and family to mingle. Every detail from indigo-dyed napkins, leather poufs and macrame chandeliers reiterated stylish comfort.
"Baby, you're something magical"
What's more magical than a new baby coming into the world?! Striving to encapsulate that pure magic lead us to our main design inspiration: the Unicorn! For this particular event, we partnered with Shutterfly to design custom invitations, table linens, glasses and serving trays. The unicorn accents married with the gold, cream and white pallet stuck the perfect balance between chic and whimsical, resulting in a truly magical afternoon for our mommy to be and all her special guests.
